Marcus Fernaldi Gideon (born 9 March 1991) is an Indonesian badminton player who was formerly ranked world No. 1 in the men's doubles by the Badminton World Federation alongside Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. He plays for PB Jaya Raya, and has been a member of the club since June 2018.[4] He and Sukamuljo were recognized as one of the most outstanding players, and awarded as the BWF Best Male Players of the Year for two years in a row after collecting seven Superseries titles in 2017 and eight World Tour titles in 2018, including two back-to-back All England Open titles.[5][6][7]

Gideon and Sukamuljo are often referred to as "the Minions" because of their below average height and for their fast and agile playing style, jumping and bouncing just like the Minions in the film Despicable Me.

[edit]

Early life

[edit]

Gideon started his career in badminton at the Tangkas Jakarta club when he was 9 years old. At the age of 13, he began playing professionally, and at the same time, he received a scholarship in Singapore. Four months later in Singapore, he returned to Indonesia because of illness, and decided not to continue his education abroad. He was again trained by his father, as a singles and doubles player.[8] Gideon won his first international title in the men's singles discipline at the Victorian International a Future Series event.[9]

Gideon was selected to join the national training centre in Cipayung, in the men's doubles team in 2010. Partnered with Agripina Prima Rahmanto Putra, he won the 2011 Singapore and 2012 Iran International tournaments,[10][11][12] and also finished as the runners-up in 2012 Vietnam and Osaka International.[13][14] Feeling disappointed with the Herry Iman Pierngadi decision in the sending players to the international tournaments, Gideon decided to leave the national training centre in 2013.[8][10]
