  1. Yea.. now they're focusing on old ceremonies
  2. I knew this when I watched Chinese TV which happened to broadcast about survivor of Bam earthquake about 3 weeks ago. And I also watched in Azerbaijani TV 3 days before ISG started when looking for potential streaming website What I'm interested is the difference of each event.. All I know is swinging the baseball bat looking club in certain movements. (which was the only thing shown on the 2 broadcasts)
  3. I don't think this really help but on Youtube they said that the events will be slowly uploaded to Olympic Channel website
  4. No surprise, because Southeast Asian nations considered the Games as a source of pride. Before the "host-must-be-first" virus started and no strange sports pushed to the program, many top athletes are not competing in other bigger championships in order to win medals. It still happens but only in a few sports.. Many countries see this as an opportunity to test their young talents nowadays (except the host nation) and the Big 5 didn't want to lose face..
  5. I have to say that the future of ISG is already dark.. 2021 in Turkey will be same pattern and same thing. Less countries will be interested, the naturalized athletes smash the countries which are serious, competition only limited to 5-6 countries and in the end no one really cares in hosting them anymore...
  6. Most of their best athletes are doing intensive training in Malaysia for SEA Games.
  7. Oh a lot because almost all of those famous 'buyers' are here Indonesia could get a few more gold if those bought people didn't play
  8. I'm okay with this.. But I cant guarantee participation if it starts in a busy moment for me. We might end up creating Continental Championships though
  9. Portugal won.. A new host! (happy) But Italy didn't get into top 3.. (unhappy) When I woke up and checked the results and in the end I was like " okay :| " And also I found that the winner's speech is a bit... (dunno how to describe in words) Basically he wanted people to appreciate other type of not-so-appreciated music (like his own) and remind to not choosing from visual aspects but in a (maybe) wrong choice of words and (also maybe) a little sprinkle of dislike to mainstream pop music. In the end, everybody just go mad in any comment section discussing the ESC by claiming their own version of view regarding Salvador's speech
  10. Indonesia bagged its first gold and silver Men's 56 kg weighlifting: Surahmat Wijoyo Muhammad Purkon Amine Bouhijbha
  11. Turkey bags the first gold medal: 10 m Air Rifle Men: Omer Akgun Mohammad Munna Saidkhon Sayfuddinov
  12. Watched the opening delayed broadcast just now.. Personally, this is a Asian/European Games level for me. ISG 2013 Opening now looks like a provincial level sport event (we can't really help it because the expected venue was part of a big corruption scandal and relocated in a short notice)
  13. So this year I only care for Italy Been listening and (secretly) singing the song for days like crazy The only song right now that can drive my attention from Occidentali's Karma is Portugal, but so far I managed to resist the temptation lol
  14. And no athletes data till now... Hope the events will be available in live stream
  15. C'mon, they need to prove it to that damned UK Sport
