“On the men’s side, Denmark carried the European flag into the finals with a 3-2 victory over China today.

It took a heroic effort from 1996 All-England champion Poul-Erik Hoyer-Larsen to do so however.

Already down one game to China’s Dong Jiong, Hoyer-Larsen came back from a 1-13 deficit to win the second 18-17. He then went on to win
the third 15-11, and the match.

The victory over China catapulted the Danes into the Thomas Cup finals for the first time since 1979.

It was there they suffered an embarrassing 9-0 loss to Indonesia twenty-seven years ago.

They will have the opportunity to avenge that loss this year however, as they once again take on Indonesia in final.

The Indonesians defeated a tough Korea 3-2 to advance.

“We will beat Denmark on Sunday,” said a confident 1992 Olympic goldmedalist Allan Budi Kusuma.

Added Indonesian team leader Lutfi Hamid, “We are afraid of the Danes, but we can beat them.”
