A well known badminton figure, Indra Gunawan has left the world. Indra Gunawan the 61-year-old Indonesian passed away yesterday morning at his home in Jakarta after battling with colon cancer for about two years.

It was indeed a big loss. Indra Gunawan is a well known coach that gives younger players chances and is an unorthodox coach.

Hafiz Hashim rise in the badminton scene was really a master class act from Indra. Not to forget Lee Chong Wei rise from the junior ranks to the world scene was also with Indra’s guidance.

May you rest in peace Indra and your contribution towards the beautiful game of badminton will not be forgotten.
