Lucia Francisca Susi Susanti (Chinese: 王蓮香, born in Tasikmalaya, West Java on 11 February 1971) is a retired Indonesianbadminton player. Relatively small of stature, she combined quick and graceful movement with elegant shotmaking technique, and rates among the most successful players in the history of the women's game. Sometimes her name is also spelled Susy Susanti.
She is married to Alan Budikusuma (Chinese: 魏仁芳), a men's badminton Olympic gold medalist (also in 1992) and one of the top men's players in the history of the sport, a former Chinese Indonesianbadminton player who excelled at the world level from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. Together they have three children Lourencia Averina, born 1999, Albertus Edward, born in 2000 and Sebastianus Frederick, born in 2003. Alan and Susi have a badminton club in Jakarta Udara. Winning an olympic gold medal was historical for Indonesia, achieving the first Olympic gold medals in 50 years history of the country. Some estimated a crowd of at least 500,000; others estimated more than a million Indonesians were lining the streets of the massive, sprawling city of Jakarta when Susi Susanti and Alan Budikusuma came home in August 1992 and received a two hour parade. They stood in an open car with leis and Olympic gold medals around their necks and inched toward the national monument in Merdeka square, on Sudirman, the main street, they could hardly move; it was jammed with people all shouting congratulations to the new badminton hero's.
In 2004, Susi and Alan established ASTEC (Alan and Susy Technology), a sport equipment corporation, to support their family. They use materials from Japan for the rackets and produced them in China. This brand has been growing up lately and marketed in most area in Indonesia. Beside ASTEC, the woman who was born in Tasikmalaya on February 11 in 1971 also opened a foot reflexology and sports physiotherapy center, “Fontana”. For this business, she works together with a former Indonesian badminton player, Elizabeth Latief. Now Fontana has four branches, three in Jakarta: Kelapa Gading, Sunter, Pondok Indah, plus one in Bogor.
