December 27, 1996 (New Shuttlenws) - Aras Triadji, the senior men's
singles coach of the Indonesian national badminton squad passed away
yesterday afternoon in Malang, Southern Java. Coach Triadji died of heart
The Indonesian coach, aged 46, was one of the instrumental architects
behind Indonesian successes in recent years and trained many of Indonesia's
crop of top men's singles players like the current world number one Joko
Coach Triadji's sudden death puts another crimp in the Indonesian coaching
ranks. Senior men's doubles coach Christian Hadinata and senior women's
singles coach Tong Hsien Fu had earlier in the month expressed their
intention to leave the national squad.
Head coach Indra Gunawan and senior women's doubles coach Imelda Kurniawan
remain with the team.
