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 increased militants’ activity.

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 held in Jakarta, Palembang on Sumatra, and West Java. About 12,000 athletes, support staff, and officials, and 5,000 journalists are expected.

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.

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. Still, President Widodo has previously complained about the lack of promotion and enthusiasm in the country.

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.

Organizers 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, and 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.
