1996 Alanta Olympic Badminton Men Single Semi Final- Heryanto Arbi VsPoul-Erik Høyer Larsen

by Andrew

An epic match between 2 great players in that era, Haryanto Arbi and Poul Erik Hoyer Larsen. Here you'll see eventual Poul Erik Hoyer Larsen displaying great backhand and forehand smashes straight down the line; what's makes it so amazing is he executed these shots consistently over and over again.

Playing aggressively from the start, which caught Haryanto Arbi off guard. Towards the end of the video, you'll know why Poul Erik Larsen played like a man possessed. There's a picture of his children, hanging on his bag at the side of the court.

Truly a great player and a great man. Playing and fighting for his family, that's probably why he played so well.
