Indonesian badminton players Greysia Polii (right) and Apriyani Rahayu celebrate their victory over South Korean pair Lee So-hee and Shin Seung-chan in the women\'s doubles semifinal of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Saturday (31/7/2021), in Tokyo, Japan. Greysia/Apriyani won with a score of 21-19, 21-17.

Looking back, Indonesia’s gold medal has consistently been dominated by badminton since the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, when Susy Susanti won gold in the women’s singles and Alan Budikusuma won gold in the men’s singles.

After that, the men’s doubles gold in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics was won by Ricky Subagdja and Rexy Mainaky, followed by Candra Wijaya and Tony Gunawan in Sydney, Australia, in 2000. Taufik Hidayat continued the tradition in men’s singles in the 2004 Athens Olympics.
