BIRMINGHAM – There is a valuable lesson to be learned from Mohammad Ahsan. Even though he was injured, he continued in the All England 2023 final match with Hendra Setiawan against Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto at Utilita Arena Birmingham, Sunday (19/3/2023).
Even though in the end The Daddies had to surrender to the hands of their juniors with two straight games 17-21, 14-21, there are valuable lessons to be learned from the world’s third ranked men’s doubles pair. Ahsan’s injury caused him to fall behind 14-20 in the second game.
After being checked on the sidelines by the match doctor, Ahsan decided to continue the match and return to playing. Ahsan chose to finish the match which left one more point for the Fajar/Rian pair. After the match, Ahsan seemed to have difficulty walking after the match ended.
The 35-year-old badminton player even needs a wheelchair to get off the court. Even when presenting the medals and trophies on the podium, Ahsan was seen being helped to walk by Fajar/Rian.
On the podium, he kept leaning on Hendra so he wouldn’t fall. From the results of the examination, it was found that Ahsan had swelling in his left knee.
“Earlier he was examined on the field by the match doctor, then after awarding the medal he met me. The condition of his left knee had started to swell, so I did not carry out further examinations first,” said dr. Grace Joselini Corlesa, quoting from the PBSI release, Sunday (19/3/2023).
“The action was to immediately compress with ice and then I gave them anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drugs too and tapped and (used) a stick,” he continued.
