BWF profile

Aadijatmiko "Christina" Finarsih (born 8 February 1972) is a retired badminton player from Indonesia who specialized in women's doubles.[1]

Career[edit]

Finarsih won a number of significant international titles during the 1990s, most of them with regular partner Lili Tampi. These included the Dutch Open (1993), the World Badminton Grand Prix (1993), the Indonesia Open (1993, 1994), the Chinese Taipei Open (1994), and the Badminton World Cup (1994). She also won the 1996 Asian Championships with another fellow countrywomen Eliza Nathanael. Finarsih and Tampi were silver medalists at the 1995 IBF World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. They were eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, and in the round of sixteen at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

The two greatest highlights of Finarsih's badminton career, however, were not victories in any tournament for individual players. Rather, they were a pair of unexpected victories with Tampi in the final round of Uber Cup (the women's international team championship) in 1994 and 1996 which were critical in helping to lift Indonesia to victories over favored and long-dominant China.
