Men's doubles supremacy[edit]

Natsir and Ahmad at 2012 Summer Olympics

Even though they actually have a balance of strength in all events, they are known for producing many great doubles in the men's category. Their doubles had conquered the Olympic Gold Medal, World Champion titles, All Englands and many open titles over decades. Among their greats are Tjun Tjun, Christian Hadinata, Eddie Hartono, Rexy Mainaky, Ricky Subagja, Chandra Wijaya, Tony G, Sigit Budiarto, Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan. Despite their domination, the national badminton governing body is also known for their awkward splitting decision. It happened twice in the Thomas Cup and thrice in the Olympics. Indonesia leads in total titles with thirteen. It won four consecutive titles from 1970 through 1979 and five consecutive titles from 1994 through 2002. Indonesia's ten-year reign as champions was ended by the resurgence of China in 2004 when the Chinese won the title in Jakarta. Indonesia has played in the decisive final tie (team match) on eighteen occasions. Since the Thomas Cup format was overhauled in 1984, it has failed to place among the top four teams only once, in 2012. In 1986, they chose to field King/Ertanto instead of the more solid King/Kartono, considering that Kartono always played badly against the Chinese. In 2004, they fielded weak doubles against strong Danish pairs. Because of those decisions, they lost the match. As for the Olympics, they didn't do anything to maintain the Halim/Tony partnership and Tony G quit the national team. They also split the Candra/Sigit combination months before the 2004 Games. Four years later in Beijing they deselected Tony G/Candra in favor of Luluk/Alvent. For the London Games, the same thing repeated once more due to their decision in deceiving reigning Olympics Gold Medalists Markis/Hendra. The 2005 edition also brought new faces in the mixed doubles event which had been dominated by China and Korea since 1997. With the retirement of defending champions and two-time winners Kim Dong-moon/Ra Kyung-min (Korea), Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir won Indonesia's first mixed doubles gold since 1980 when Christian Hadinata/Imelda Wiguna won it last for Indonesia.

Match fixing[edit]

At the London 2012 Olympic Games, two members of the Indonesian badminton team, Greysia Poli and Meiliana Jauhari, were thrown out of the tournament after being found guilty of match fixing. Chair of the London Organising Committee, Lord Coe described the incident as "depressing".[7]
