The Indonesian men’s Badminton Team is now ranked first in the Thomas 2020 2020 Cup which will be held in Aarhus Denmar 3-11 October 2020. With this position, the Indonesian Team has a big target, which is to become champions.
At least, when the Indonesian badminton team has five months to be able to concentrate on preparing for the most prestigious team championship. PB PBSI’s Head of Guidance and Achievement, Susy Susanti, said that if the Thomas and Uber Cup 2020 is the main target of his party.
“Thomas and Uber are one of our priority tournaments at PBSI. The children really have to start preparing themselves, “Susy said as reported by Antara.
“But of course it can’t be 100 percent now, considering the conditions are still in a pandemic … So that we now prioritize more mutual safety. Don’t let anyone get sick, “added the 1992 Olympic gold medalist in Barcelona.
If it sticks to the normal schedule, then Thomas and Uber Cup 2020 will be regularly held in mid May each year. Usually, before competing in the Thomas Cup, the badminton players will take part in various other events as a warm-up.
Tournaments included in the PBSI calendar as a pre-Thomas Cup event are Malaysia Open, Sinagapore Open, Badminton Asia Championship (BAC), and Denmark Open.
It’s just that, due to the global co-19 pandemic, made the whole agenda of badminton tournaments in the world to be canceled, and postponed. This situation, according to Susy, not only disrupted the Indonesian Team, but also experienced by all the world’s top teams. So that makes competitor countries strong Red and White, such as Japan, China, Denmark have also minimal preparation. So, of course Indonesia now also has a great opportunity to be able to bring the Thomas Cup home.
“In my view, the power is now evenly distributed. Talk about opportunities, yes we still have. But back, to what about our own preparation. Hopefully we can really maximize this time, “concluded Susy.
