    Pemenang selalu memiliki program

    Pecundang selalu memiliki alasan

    Ketika pemenang melakukan sebuah kesalahan,
    ia akan berkata “Saya melakukan kesalahan”

    Ketika pecundang melakukan sebuah kesalahan,
    ia akan berkata “Itu bukan kesalahan saya”

    Pemenang membuat komitmen-komitmen

    Pecundang membuat janji-janji

    Pemenang memilih seperti yang ia ingin lakukan

    Pecundang memilih sesuai pilihan orang banyak

    Pemenang membuat sesuatu terjadi

    Pecundang membiarkan sesuatu terjadi

EAST ASIAN GAMES – China’s Teams Clean Sweep but Sweat

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on December 12, 2009

Both Chinese men and women’s team won the team competition of the East Asian Games in Hong Kong, but Korea (men’s) and Chinese Taipei (women’s) didn’t go down without a fight.

China won both team events, as expected. But, with some of the best players who had stayed home or on the bench during the competition, the Chinese youngsters provided their coaches and public with some scary moments.

In the women’s team final, China was facing Chinese Taipei, with their former world’s number one pair of Chien Yu Chin and Cheng Wen Hsing.  And the latter did take the second point of the tie, after Xia Jingyun beat Hsu Ya Ching in straight games. Chien and Cheng beat the in-form Ma Jin and Wang Xialoi,  which was a surprise after the Chinese pair’s impressive results this fall.

With both teams level at 1-1, it was Fu Shanshan (another youngster) who delivered the crucial point for China, thanks to a tight victory in the first game, 22-20 before rolling through the second 21-9 against Pai Hsiao Ma.

Last but not least, Cheng and Zhao – two of the most experienced players in spite of their young age – delievered the winning point over Wang and Hsieh.

Du Pengyu gives the final victory to China

In the men’s team event, Lin Dan was there to lead the Chinese armada, who had rocked the previous evening in the women’s event.  Lin and Chen Long took the singles points against Korea – who, in contrast, had not sent their best singles players. But the duo of Kwon Yi Goo and Kim Ki Jung made light work of Chai Biao and Zhang Nan, giving pressure to China’s last men’s singles player Du Pengyu (photo). And Du was close to losing to another Korean  veteran newcomer, Choi Ho Jin, who finally bowed in three games, 7-21, 21-18, 16-21 to give the final say to China.

It was a lucky win for the Chinese, because if Choi (photo, left) had created the upset, all would have relied on a young pair of Sun and Tao who were to play Korea’s very solid new pair of Shin and Cho.  However, Du’s win provided China with the final 3-1 success and the gold medal in this team competition.

I am thrilled to have won this as this is the first time I win the East Asian Games,” said Lin Dan to Sina News after the victory before adding, with a smile: “Now I hope I can go shopping but its not easy as there are always reporters taking photos all over,” he said, hinting that he had not met Xie Xingfang yet in Hong Kong.  He and Chen Jin will be the main favourites in the individual event, which kicked off on Friday.

Rexy hopes players make up for his disappointmen

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on December 12, 2009

INDONESIAN Rexy Mainaky may be one of the successful badminton coaches in the world but, as a player, he has never won an individual gold medal at the SEA Games.

And the doubles chief coach of the Malaysian national team is hoping that his charges will be able to achieve it in Laos.

Malaysia have three men’s pairs – Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif and Chan Peng Soon-Lim Khim Wah. Except for Kien Keat, all the others are SEA Games rookies.

Rexy is looking forward to his charges ending a six-year wait for Malaysia to win the SEA Games men’s doubles gold medal.

The last Malaysian men’s doubles champions were Lee Wan Wah-Choong Tan Fook – in the 2003 Vietnam Games.

“I have not been lucky in the individual events of the SEA Games. But if the Malaysian players win, I can at least have a share in the limelight,” he said.

Rexy had the best chance to win gold in the 1997 Jakarta Games with Ricky Subagja but he had to concede a walkover because of a twisted ankle.

However, he had team gold medals to show for from the 1993 (Singapore), 1995 (Chiang Mai) and 1997 editions of the Games.

Rexy added that the race for the men’s doubles title in Laos was very open and hoped that his pairs would make up for their failure in the Super Series Masters Finals in Johor Baru last week.

Top seeds Kien Keat-Boon Heong failed to make the semi-finals while Fairuzizuan-Tazari went down tamely to Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung of South Korea in the last four.

“The defeat of Koo and Tan was understandable because they had gone through a very hectic schedule. They did well to reach the final in three of the four back-to-back tournaments,” said Rexy.

“They have everything going for them and I hope they will walk their talk here. There is also an opportunity for Zakry-Fairuzizuan if both can overcome their inconsistency.”

Malaysia’s main rivals in the individual events are Indonesians Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan and Bona Septano-Mohd Ahsan.

The individual competitions start on Monday.

Bandarlampung, 11/12 (Antara/FINROLL News)- Dua pengurus kabupaten (pengkab) Persatuan Bulu Tangkis Seluruh Indonesia (PBSI) di Lampung, terancam tidak mengikuti musyawarah provinsi (musprov) karena habisnya masa kepengurusan.

“Dua pengkab tersebut yakni Lampung Tengah dan Lampung Utara, karena keduanya habis periode kepengurusan pada tahun 2008,” kata Ketua Pengprov PBSI Lampung, Tadjuddin Nur, di Bandarlampung, Jumat.

Ia menjelaskan, Musyawarah Provinsi (Musprov) PBSI Lampung direncanakan pada 19 Desember 2009, di Kalianda Lampung Selatan, dengan agenda utama pemilihan ketua dan pembuatan program kerja.

Karena itu, dua pengkab tersebut harus segera mengurus perpanjangan atau melaksanakan musyawarah kabupaten, sebelum mengikuti musprov.

“Kami menunggu hingga beberapa hari pelaksanaan musprov. Jika tidak segera diselesaikan, mereka terancam tidak bisa mengikuti kegiatan secara aktif,” kata dia.

Kepengurusan PBSI Lampung Utara periode 2005-2008 diketuai Syofyan Sariadi dan sekretarisnya M Gaus, dan PBSI Kabupaten Lampung Utara, ketuanya Mardani Umar dan sekretarisnya Ansori.

Menyinggung apakah akan maju lagi dalam pemilihan tersebut, Tadjuddin mengaku sudah lelah dan saatnya bergantian dengan yang lain.

“Mengurus olah raga, khususnya PBSI tidak semata memiliki kemampuan finansial. Tetapi harus memahami teknik, relasi dengan pusat dan mau berkorban waktu,” kata dia.

Terkait sulitnya pebulutangkis Lampung menembus kancah Sumatra di pekan olah raga wilayah (porwil), apalagi nasional, ia mengaku karena sumber daya manusia di daerah tersebut minim.

Selain itu, lanjut dia, yang juga wakil sekretaris KONI Lampung, beberapa klub kurang melakukan pembinaan secara intensif.

“Kami kan menggunakan pebulutangkis didikan mereka, termasuk yang dikirim pengkab atau pengkot,” terang dia.

Sementara itu, Wakil Wali Kota Bandarlampung, Kherlani, berminat menjadi ketua Pengprov PBSI Lampung, asalkan dicalonkan secara aklamasi dari seluruh pemilik hak suara pada musprov mendatang.

Namun, beberapa pihak ingin melihat dulu komitmen yang akan dibuat Kherlani dalam memimpin guna meningkatkan mutu olah raga bulu tangkis di Lampung.
