BWF profile

Flandy Limpele (born 9 February 1974 in Manado, North Sulawesi) is a male badminton player from Indonesia. He competed at the 1996 Atlanta, 2000 Sydney, 2004 Athens, and 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.[1]

Career[edit]

A doubles specialist, at various times Limpele has focused on either men's doubles or mixed doubles during his long career in international badminton. His earliest appearances in the final rounds of major events came in mixed doubles in mid-1990s. However, he first broke through internationally in men's doubles at the 1999 Korea Open with Eng Hian. His subsequent men's doubles titles, most of them with Hian, have included the Denmark (2000), Singapore (2002, 2006), Japan (2002), Bitburger (2002), and German (2003) Opens, and the Copenhagen Masters (2000, 2004). Hian and Limpele briefly represented England from 2001 until 2003. [2] They later returned to represent Indonesia for 2004 Summer Olympics.[3] Flandy and Eng were runners-up at the prestigious All-England Championships in 2002, and bronze medalists at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

After 2004 Limpele gravitated back to mixed doubles. In 2006 he teamed with Vita Marissa to win a number of top tier events including the Singapore, Japan, French, and Chinese Taipei Opens, as well as the Southeast Asian Games title. They were bronze medalists at the 2007 World Championships in Kuala Lumpur, and won the Badminton Asia Championships together in 2008.

Not an especially powerful hitter, Limpele's strengths have been his racket-work, tactical astuteness, and anticipation.

Participation at Indonesian Team[edit]

Personal life[edit]

When he was young, he joined the SGS Bandung badminton club. His parents are Erik Limpele (father) and Nelcy Oroh (mother). His hobby is football. Normally people called him Flandy.
