Indonesia is more enthralling in the badminton world

Badminton Indonesia looks more attractive in the eyes of the world. After being selected as one of the three hosts of the second badminton tournament, behind the Olympics, World Championships and Super Series Finals, Indonesia again gained the confidence of hosting two prestigious tournaments at junior level. The two prestigious U-19 championships are Asian Junior Championships (AJC) and World Junior Championships aka World Junior Championships (WJC).

If the newly opened Indonesian Open tournament tournament will not start next year, U-19 level tournaments that play mixed team numbers and individuals will be held this year. The holding of these two young tournaments took place in close proximity. AJC is scheduled for July 22-30 at Sports Venues Jaya Raya Bintaro, Jakarta. This time of the retreat a few weeks from the original plan because it is adjacent to the Eid al-Fitr. While the time and place of the WJC has been declared since last year. Yogyakarta Special Region has the honor of hosting the WJC, 9-22 October 2017. According to Bambang Roedyanto, Head of International Relations of PP PBSI as reported by badminton indonesia.org, Indonesia’s selection as the new AJC host was announced last week.

Although newly announced, it does not mind to host. “The matter of preparation time is quite short, we think there is no problem, there are still four months ahead, we have started to do the preparation that can be done.” Opportunity Getting the trust as the host for these two prestigious championships became an opportunity for Indonesia. Not only does it get legitimacy as a country with a strong badminton tradition with an unquestionable reputation. More than that this golden opportunity to provide technical advantages for the development of badminton in the country.

On the one hand as the host Indonesia will get a quota of more athletes. On the other hand opens opportunities for badminton, especially athletes and coaches, as well as clubs to look closely at the gait of the young men from abroad. The process of learning and exchanging insights can happen easily without having to spend more. Luxury and splendor are in sight. In order that athletes are getting motivated to take part in it. Although in the end the match will be determined by PBSI, which he said has started to call athletes to National training camp, at least still encourage young players to continue to show off. After AJC and WJC await next year’s world-class prestigious event, the 2018 Youth Olympic in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

These two championships are just like a selection of stairs to South America. Achievements in the AJC and WJC will be fruitful points that will pave the way to the world level. While other young victors who are not elected do not need to be discouraged because the opportunity is always open when able to show achievement. For the Indonesian contingent, AJC and WJC are a barometer to measure the world’s youth map. Almost certainly the world’s best junior athletes will take part in the two championships. Indonesia can measure the extent to which the strength is not only oriented to Youth Olympic, but more than that as a material evaluation of youth coaching in the country. It will look like what is the condition of our badminton regeneration and where Indonesia is positioned in the middle of the world competition map of young players. Reflecting on the WJC last year, Indonesia’s achievement has not been good. This shows that the regeneration process is still running so slow that it can not compete with other powerful countries. China is still a mirror in this regard. Although the achievements at the senior level is currently a bit shaky, the situation will be redeemed in the near future.

They are female singles finalist Chen Xiaoxin (18) and Chen Yufei (19), and single son Shi Yuqi (21) who surrendered from his senior Super

After the resumption, Barcelona barely took five minutes to open the score in the most unexpected. Jose Manuel Jurado, probably the most reliable player in the pass of the team blanquiazul, sent a ball back that remained in no man’s land, and the smartest of the class as Luis Suarez was able to take advantage to go alone against the goalkeeper and do The 0-1. The Uruguayan changed the game and made the defensive approach of Sanchez Flores useless. Espanyol now had to open in search of the goal.

With the score in favor, the Barca were more relaxed. By contrast, the Spaniards began to leave more spaces and Barcelona was becoming more comfortable. That was when the Argentine crack appeared, Leo Messi, in the 76th minute to do one of his and assist Rakitic so that, with a subtle strike with the left, put the ball to the far stick of the parakeet and finish inside network.

The 0-2 seemed too punishing for the good work the blue-white players for more than an hour. Nevertheless, the perico group would end up receiving a greater corrective with the third both culé and second in the particular account of Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan took advantage of a mistake in the clearance of the Spaniard behind to stand hand in hand against Diego Lopez and beat him again.

With this important victory, those of Luis Enrique recover the leadership and put back pressure to Real Madrid in the fight for the title of Liga, lack of three days (one more for the white set).
