The Fourth Gold Medal for Indonesia

The Fourth gold medal for Indonesia in Asian Games 2010 came from Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan, badminton athletes. This famous couple successfully bagged home the gold after beating  Malaysia, strengthened Indonesia on its position in the top ten. Big thanks to Kido & Hendra!

Beijing Olympic gold medalists Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan outpowered their arch-rivals Koo Kean Keat and Tan Boon Heong from Malaysia in the finals of the Asian Games at Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou, China, to claim gold medal for Indonesia, on Saturday evening.

Kido/Hendra had to muster out their prowess to outlast the Malaysian duo in a breath-taking 16-21, 26-24, 21-19 game.

The victory narrows the score to 4-5 for the Malaysians. The Malaysians who won gold medal in the previous quadrennial event in Doha, Qatar in 2006 still take the lead in their international meets.

With the victory, the Indonesian contingent collects four gold medals.
