GRIDLOCK, PUTRID WATERWAYS: IS JAKARTA ASIAN GAMES READY?

 Indonesia’s capital has scrambled to prepare for this weekend’s pan-Asian multi-sport event, but organizers insist that whatever is left on the to-do list is minor – critics disagree

Jakarta is nicknamed the “Big Durian” by its denizens as its varied delights are usually accompanied by a strange smell.

While enjoying all the attractions of an Asian megacity – deliciously spicy street food to capacious luxury malls – visitors to the Indonesian capital can find themselves distracted by the endlessly gridlocked traffic, impassable pavements, fetid waterways, and perpetually hazy skies.

Jakarta workmen held their own version of the Asian Games in the city’s streets as they downed tools for Indonesia’s annual independence day celebrations yesterday.

Workers played football, held tugs-of-war, and climbed a greasy bamboo pole as part of their traditional celebrations, held this year a day ahead of the Games’ opening ceremony.

Indonesia reportedly gunned down 31 people to reduce street crime ahead of the Asian Games

 

  • Indonesian police have been on an eight-month mission to beat crime in the run-up to the 2018 Asian Games, which started on Friday.
  • This includes killing dozens of petty criminals, Amnesty International said.
  • 31 killings happened in the host cities of Jakarta and South Sumatra alone.
  • The chief of police is open about the treatment of suspected criminals – saying if they fight back, his guys will just shoot them.
  • The country is hosting the Asian Games until September 2, which is the second-largest sporting event after the Olympics.

Last month, authorities said they had shot more than 50 suspects in Jakarta who “resisted arrest” during a crackdown.

Dozens of people have been killed amid a police crackdown on petty crime in the run-up to the Asian Games in Indonesia, according to Amnesty International.

The human rights organization said the police action was “unnecessary and excessive”.

It said at least 31 suspects were killed under a “shoot first and ask questions later” operation in host city Jakarta and South Sumatra in the build-up to the world’s second-biggest multi-sport event, which starts on Saturday.

Philippine bets hoping to medal in initial blast of Asiad action

Nelson Beltran (philstar.com) – August 17, 2018 – 6:08pm

 

JAKARTA – Philippine sports officials hope the swashbuckling opening-game victory by the national quintet can serve as an inspiration for the rest of the Filipino athletes as they start their quests for precious mints the day after curtains finally go up in the 18th Asian Games here Saturday night.

Twenty gold medals will be at stake Sunday, with the Philippine contingent banking on the Filipino jins in a bid to get to the medal column right in the initial blast of hostilities in the Jakarta meet gathering 15,000 athletes and sports officials in the region.

Gilas Pilipinas ripped apart Kazakhstan, 96-59, in a rousing debut in men’s basketball competition, providing an early morale boost and momentum for Team Philippines ahead of the opening rites set at 7 p.m. (8 p.m. in Manila) tonight at the 75,000-seater Gelaro Bung Karno Sports Complex.

Asian Games: Indonesia’s police chief unapologetic about shootings of petty criminals

By Indonesia bureau chief David Lipson

Posted 

Indonesian police have wrapped up their blitz on crime ahead of the Asian Games opening ceremony, shooting dead at least 15 petty criminals and injuring dozens more.

National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian said his officers had arrested “thousands of people” and detained “hundreds” in an effort to ensure the safety of visiting tourists during the games.

 

“In the last month … I have ordered my personnel to finish off all networks of pick-pockets and bag-snatchers, with the support of the Indonesian Military Chief,” he told reporters in late July.

 

He was unapologetic following accusations police were using excessive force to solve relatively minor crimes.

 

“If [criminals] fight back, don’t hesitate. Finish them off,” he said.

2018 Asiad torch reaches Jakarta
August 16, 2018, 12:13 AM
The torch for the 18th Asian Games reached Indonesia’s capital Jakarta yesterday, ending a month-long journey across the Southeast Asian archipelago nation.
It was welcomed in style by marching bands, traditional dances, and concerts, after starting its journey in the host country’s cultural centerYogyakarta on July 17.
The flame was lit in India’s capital New Delhi, which hosted the first Asian Games in 1951.
The torch is set to arrive Saturday at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium for the opening ceremonies, ending its 18,000km journey across 54 cities.

Powerhouse China set their sights on another pot of gold

Since the 1982 Games in New Dehli, Chinese athletes have consistently outshone their regional rivals while setting new benchmarks.

As the 10th anniversary of the 2008 Beijing Olympics ticks by, China will seek to maintain their sporting pre-eminence at the Jakarta Asian Games and top the medal table for the 10th time in succession.

Since the 1982 Games in New Dehli, Chinese athletes have consistently outshone their regional rivals while setting new benchmarks.

On home soil in Guangzhou in 2010, China narrowly missed out on breaking through the 200-gold medal barrier, but the 199 golds and 416 medals in all remains an Asian Games record for a single nation.

China may struggle to surpass those benchmarks but will expect to dominate as usual.

At Incheon four years ago, China claimed the largest medal hauls in athletics, cycling, diving, gymnastics, rowing, shooting, swimming, table tennis, weightlifting, and the martial art of wushu.

Sprint duo Su Bingtian and Xie Zhenye are expected to lead China’s charge on the track, with the pair pushing each other to new heights so far this season.

Twice in the space of eight days in June, Su recorded times of 9.91 seconds in the 100 meters to match the Asian record he shares with Qatar’s Femi Ogunode, while Xie has also dipped under 10 seconds with a 9.97 run this season.

China’s supremacy is under threat in certain disciplines, with Japan and South Korean table tennis closing the gap.

They have also brought a relatively inexperienced team, leaving multiple Olympic champions Ma Long, Xu Xin, and Ding Ning out of the squad.

 

“All of the five female players we have for the Asian Games are qualified enough and boast great skills,” women’s head coach Li Sun told the China Daily.

“The Asiad is also a test for our young players to see if they can handle the pressure without the help of top players like Ding Ning.”

 

China will hope their women’s volleyball team can reassert themselves after picking up silver at Incheon behind South Korea.

“We gather all the force we have to prepare for the Asian Games,” said Lang Ping, who coached the team to gold in Rio.

“To win the Asian Games is not easy, and will require a tough fight. No matter who will go, we all have to play our best games to win.”

Asian Games: A lot at stake for hosts

16 August 2018

Despite a massive counter-terrorism crackdown since the 2002 Bali bombing, the past several years have seen increased activity by militants.

 

Jakarta (Indonesia): Indonesia is deploying 100,000 police and soldiers to provide security for the Asian Games, the biggest event ever held in its terror attack prone capital Jakarta, parts of which have been dramatically spruced up as the city readies to welcome tens of thousands of athletes and visitors.

The 18th Asian Games, which run until September 2, are being held in Jakarta, Palembang on the island of Sumatra, and in West Java. About 12,000 athletes, support staff and officials and 5,000 journalists are expected.

2018 Asian Games Philippines Team List

It’s the second time Indonesia has hosted the games. The first in 1962 was under the country’s founding President Sukarno, who wanted to showcase Indonesia and himself as a leader of nations who’d thrown off colonial Western rule. This time, Indonesia, projected to be among the world’s 10 biggest economies by 2030, wants to shift perceptions that it’s in the ‘too hard’ basket and pave the way for an eventual tilt at even bigger sports hosting baubles.

65,000 Indonesians go loco for pocopoco in Asian Games record attempt

Indonesia President Joins the Poco-Poco Celebrations for the 2018 Asian Games

Jakarta (AFP) – Indonesian President Joko Widodo led some 65,000 of his compatriots in a mass dance through the streets of Jakarta on Sunday. To promote the Asian Games and try to set a world record along the way.

Jakarta and the city of Palembang on Sumatra will jointly host Asia’s biggest sporting event on August 18 but President Widodo has previously complained about the lack of promotion and enthusiasm in the country.

In a bid to drum up support ahead of the games authorities turned to the poco-poco, a traditional line dance from North Sulawesi province.

Dressed in white and red — the color of the Indonesian flag — President Widodo, his wife Iriana, and several high ranking officials led tens of thousands of Indonesians in a long, snaking line of dancers through the capital.

Organisers hope to break the world record for the largest number of people performing the traditional dance in one place. And said 65,000 people took part in Jakarta.

“Poco-poco is the original culture of Indonesia and it’s a native dance, so we are now performing a mass Poco-poco dance with 65,000 people setting the world record showing and reiterating Poco-poco belongs to Indonesia,” police chief Tito Karnavian who took part in the event said.

Police and military staff, members of parliament, students, members of fitness centers as well as inmates in jails across Indonesia all showed their best Poco-poco moves at the same.

“This a very good opportunity to show that Indonesia is conserving its traditions,” high school student Raja Farid Akbar said. “I am happy that I can help promote a tradition that could have been forgotten.”

11,000 athletes and 5,000 officials from 45 Asian countries will flock to Jakarta and Palembang. For the August 18 to September 2 Games. The world’s biggest multi-sport event behind the Olympics.

6 Japan
10 South Korea
16 Thailand
21 Kazakhstan
24 Azerbaijan
45 Vietnam
55 Taipei
66 Hong Kong
66 Indonesia

Top Teams 2014 Asian Games, Incheon Korea
GOLD South Korea (host)
SILVER China
BRONZE Thailand
4 Japan
5 Taipei
6 Kazakhstan
7 Hong Kong
8 India
9 Maldives

**NB The top 4 in FIVB Rankings finished Top 4 in the Asian Games 2014, albeit a different order

**All teams in Top 7 ranked higher than the Philippines by FIVB, India, and the Maldives not ranked higher than the Philippines but didn’t finish higher than the team ranked higher than the Philippines by FIVB

Fast Forward 3 years 
2017 SEA Games, Kuala Lumpur

GOLD Thailand
SILVER Indonesia
BRONZE Vietnam

4 Philippines

5 Myanmar
6 Malaysia
7 Cambodia
8 Timor Leste

**Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia are all ranked higher than the Philippines by FIVB so finishing behind them is no surprise. In 

retrospect how other women’s team sports fared at SEA Games

Basketball 4th of 7 (but not being sent as per the recent article)
Rugby 4th of 5
Netball 5th of 5

2017 Asian Champs (host Philippines)

1 Japan
2 Thailand
3 South Korea
4 China (as expected the top 4 in FIVB, and Asian Games top 4 again in a different rotating order)
5 Vietnam
6 Chinese Taipei
7 Kazakhstan
8 Philippines
9 Iran
10 Australia 
11 Hong Kong
12 New Zealand
13 Sri Lanka
14 Maldives

**The Philippines did finish ahead of Hong Kong ranked 66th. Australia and NZ did not send strongest teams.

***Note having a good knowledge of stats and geography starting about 25 years ago or more certainly helped.
