BWF profile

Eddy Hartono Arbie (Chinese: 洪忠中, born July 19, 1964 in Kudus) is a former Chinese Indonesian badminton player who excelled in the late 1980s and early 1990s. After a brief stint competing in singles, he soon became a doubles specialist noted for his deft racket control and fluent strokes. His two other siblings, Hariyanto and Hastomo were world class shuttlers in men's singles event.

Career[edit]

Hartono shared numerous international men's doubles titles in a relatively brief time period, most of them with Rudy Gunawan. These included the Japan (1987), Indonesia (1989, 1992), Dutch (1989, 1992), Singapore (1990), and Thailand (1991) Opens. He won the World Badminton Grand Prix (1990), the Southeast Asian Games (1991), the prestigious All-England title (1992), and earned a silver medal at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, all with Gunawan. Hartono also captured several international mixed doubles titles, and placed second in mixed doubles at the 1989 IBF World Championships with Verawaty Fajrin.
