Jakarta. Indonesia won a silver medal in the men's team badminton event at the Istora Senayan Stadium in Jakarta on Wednesday (22/08), its first in 20 years, after grueling and dramatic matches against China during this year's Asian Games.
The team event, which results are decided based on the best five matches, opened with a game between Anthony Sinisuka Ginting and Shi Yuqi. Anthony showed determination despite a leg cramp. He lost, but earned his opponent's respect and outpouring sympathy of Indonesian supporters.
