Top shuttler Markis Kido was back practicing on Tuesday at the national training camp in Jakarta, after resolving a contract dispute with the Badminton Association of Indonesia (PBSI) that saw him quit training over the weekend.
"I'm back training today after being absent from Saturday to Monday. We've settled our differences, mainly on the value of my contract," Kido, who plays in the men's doubles with Hendra Setiawan, told The Jakarta Post.
Kido had announced his departure from the camp, saying the PBSI had acted "in an offensive manner" in response to his query over the contract and had told him the sum was non-negotiable. Also jumping ship were his brother Bona Septono and sister Pia Zebaidah.
"They could've avoided this if they had not used some kind of compulsion. They called me up on Monday evening and we've agreed on the value. I guess it was just miscommunication," he said.
He added that his siblings, doubles player Bona and singles player Pia, had also returned to camp.
Kido and Hendra, ranked No. 1 in the world, won the men's doubles titles at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2007 world championships.
