Greysia Polii/Apriyani Rahayu’s good performances at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics turned out to be golden. Apriyani’s habit of kissing Greysia’s hand is unique.
Greysia/Apriyani won the highest championship in the biggest sporting event in the world this year. They shot to the final by losing only one game in the quarterfinals by representatives of China, Du Yue / Li Yin Hui.
After that, the couple who debuted since 2017 went smoothly to the ultimate party. They became champions after getting rid of Chen Qingchen / Jia Yifan in the match at Musashino Forest Plaza with a straight game 21-19, 21-15, Monday (2/8/2021).
Behind their impressive appearance, Greysia/Apriyani presented an interesting scene in every match they played. Apriyani often kisses Greysia’s hand on several occasions.
In particular, when they managed to outperform Chen/Jia in the first 11-8 game interval. Apriyani immediately approached Greysia and grabbed her hand for a kiss. Meanwhile, Greysia greeted him by stroking Apriyani’s head, like a brother’s affection for a sister.
The same thing was repeated at half-time in the second game. At that time, Apriyani who successfully launched her smash managed to score 11-7 and further widen their advantage over the Chinese representatives.
Apriyani immediately grabbed Greysia’s hand and lowered her head towards Greysia’s fist.
Not only the habit of kissing hands, the two also shook hands and threw shouts to motivate each other. Especially when they achieved point by point in the final match.
Not only that, Greysia also had time to go out to change rackets during the second game. After winning, Greysia/Apriyani also had time to celebrate with a TikTok dance. Indeed, Greysia is active on TikTok by frequently uploading short videos.
Apart from that, the achievements that Greysia/Apriyani made at the Olympics this year became history for Indonesia. They became the first Indonesian women’s doubles to win a gold medal at the Olympics.
The previous best women’s doubles achievement only reached the quarter-finals through the appearance of Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Greysia Polii at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
