Indonesia’s Sony Dwi Kuncoro injured in the 2011 Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold – Badminton News
Indonesian shuttler, Sony Dwi Kuncoro, has again suffered with a back injury while he was competing in his second-round match against India’s Anup Sridhar, in the 2011 Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold, on Wednesday, May 4.
Sony has been suffering with injuries for the last four years, but his fighting spirit has always helped the Indonesian recover and return to the sport. Sony, for the second time in his career suffered with a back injury, in the first qualifying event for 2012 London Olympics.
The Indonesian, while speaking about his dream, said, “I always want to become Indonesia’s great player, win major titles and be a prominent figure. So far, it is still an unfulfilled dream.”
He also added, “Injuries have become my nightmare but I am giving it another shot to make my way to the top. It will be a gradual process but I can make it if I persevere. I do not want to end my career without a major title, not yet.”
Sony won the silver medal in the 2007 World Badminton Championships, where he defeated current World Number one, Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia, in the Men’s Singles third round. Chong Wei also suffered a stunning defeat from the Indonesian in the 2009 World Championships.
After the 2007 edition of the championship, Sony suffered with a back injury and took two years to recover from it. In 2009, he delivered some wonderful performances and earned considerable ranking points. The Indonesian has had different injuries at regular intervals, affecting his progress at international level.
Sony is determined to recover as soon as possible, as his major target is to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games. The shuttler still has a full year ahead of him to prove his worth in different events and earn much needed ranking points.
The Indonesian is currently World Number 29 and wants to improve his ranking, as only two players from one country can participate in the Olympics, if they are among the world’s top eight players.
