Greysia Polii and Apriyani Rahayu have been guaranteed a medal after they beat Shin Seung Chan and Lee Soo Hee in the semi final today at Tokyo with a score of 21-19, 21-17.

The great badminton nation of Indonesia has won gold medals in all the other events – men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles and mixed doubles, but has never won even a medal in the women’s doubles event.

Polii and Rahayu will write history for Indonesia Monday, regardless of the colour of the medal they win.
