    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesian male double pair Angga Pratama/Ricky Karanda Surwardi added another gold medal collection after winning the SEA Games 2015 badminton final against another Indonesian male double Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon. Angga/Ricky won by two straight games of 21-12, 24-22 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Singapore, on Tuesday, June 16, 2015.

    "Early on the second game, we were behind Kevin/Marcus. However, we can regain focus and win the game," said Angga.

    "We play like we were practicing, as we know their strengths and weaknesses," said Ricky.

    On the other hand, Hanna Ramadhini, the last Indonesian female contingent in the single female number, lost to Thailand player Busanan Ombungrungpan in two games of 17-21, 12-21. Hanna only managed to collect one silver medal for Indonesia.
