PBSI gets extended aid

JAKARTA (JP): The Badminton Association of Indonesia (PBSI) on Thursday received an extended sponsorship commitment for its national championships for the next three years.

The deal, signed by PBSI chairman Surjadi and President Director of PT BAT Indonesia JG Priem, renewed the previous three-year-term contract signed in 1991, the first time the tobacco company sponsored the annual championships.

PBSI will hold the 1994 edition of the event in December in Denpasar, Bali, which will coincide with its annual plenary meeting. All Indonesia's top shuttlers are expected to join the season-ending tournament.

Alan Budikusuma and Susi Susanti resumed their Olympic Games golden run by taking the men's singles and women's singles titles respectively last year in Palembang, South Sumatra. (amd)
