  1. Badminton 2018 Discussion Thread

    BWF will announce the information about the new BWF World Tour which will replace the BWF World Superseries in a few hours.. However the names of each level has been leaked: Level 1 : BWF World Tour Finals Level 2 : BWF World Tour Super 1000 Level 3 : BWF World Tour Super 750 Level 4 : BWF World Tour Super 500 Level 5 : BWF World Tour Super 300 Also there is Level 6: BWF Tour Super 100 which won't affect ranking points for the World Tour Finals. Clear copy-paste from ATP World Tour naming, duh.
  2. You know that Poomsae is a judged event, right? 4th is too optimistic, even for the most optimistic Indonesian (unless they don't know about sports at all) Getting 5th - 8th is already a "thank God" moment for us. At this point some sports are still waiting for their funding so they can start training, provide supplements, etc. Even our weightlifters have to miss the World Champs because the government failed to allocate money for their participation. I mean if weightlifting can't get such things, how about the other sports like handball or wrestling?
  3. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    "The Winter Games to be held in South Korea will be a good occasion for the country" https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1059624/north-korea-willing-to-compete-at-pyeongchang-2018-reveals-kim-jong-un
  4. Poomsae because Indonesia is quite strong And yes 63 kg and 53 kg is where our best athletes are in And archery is so problematic, the compound archers complained that they're in a state of uncertainty... Table tennis - tennis team event is a no because Indonesia 99% won't get a medal The volunteer program is confusing, and we don't even have a fixed venue list yet. Basketball will move from its original venue to the same venue with badminton, reportedly basketball matches will start on 8 August.... So far it is still ""
  5. Badminton 2017 Discussion Thread

    Never thought there will be a real flag raising in normal badminton circuit lol
  6. Good. In term of badminton is quite good, we have Gideon/Sukamuljo that dominated the men's doubles, we won 1 gold in the World Championships, won 2 golds at World Junior Championships. But we were eliminated at the group stage of Sudirman Cup. Our football is meh... Whatever, I just simply tired with that s**t. We got 38 gold medals in SEA Games, the worst since 1977.. But the whole Games is quite controversial. Luckily our Para-Athletes became the overall champion at ASEAN Para Games. We also have our first swimmer in FINA WC semifinal this year Hopefully 2018 is better.
  7. Not have enough time to scroll all the pages currently but thank you to all who have voted to Indonesian song. Also, @LDOG @konig just saying... It's just a love on the first notes One funny thing is that I almost mistaken it as the Spanish representatives
  8. Go raibh maith agat @OlympicIRL
  9. Yayy first points Thanks @Werloc Unfortunately can't really follow the contest, I'm sick Maybe just showing up for next hour...
  10. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Now many Indonesians are flooding Twitter with the hashtag #IndonesiaMencariPapah (Indonesia Looking for "Father") - a nickname of him because he used the word "Papa" as his code name from leaked phone recordings Or even joking about suing the police because they don't take the utility pole to the hospital, etc, etc..
  11. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Still remember the Indonesian politician who staged a fake critical condition to avoid interrogation by the authorities? Now he faked an accident and being "intensively treated" in a big hospital just about 1 mile from my workplace How can a car hit a utility pole from the front but the glass on the rear left part completely off The "accident" happened when he is on the way to the interrogation of yet another corruption case.
  12. Ahh the mainstream type.. Not really a fan of this type, a quite random hip-hop with rapping and fast tempo thingy.. Well, girls from 5 continents adore them though
  13. Sa Bai Dee - Lao Choir of Department of Performing Arts Well since this is a sport forum, I thought why not try theme song from sport events. This song is used for SEA Games 2009 Laos opening ceremony and also many highlights show used this song.
  14. Ok I'll pick and First I'll post the 'neighbor song' NYX15 - Matawen It's in Tetum (East Timorese language) so I've no idea what they're singing, but it is very good
  15. I'll be the judge Hopefully it's better than my pick before haha
  16. [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread

    Btw, this guy has won the Preliminary Hearing... No trial for him.. Looks like he's gonna wake up right away and all the complication will miraculously vanish
  17. [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread

    One famous politician in Indonesia suddenly became "sick" when he is scheduled to come to the Anti Corruption Commission for some investigation of a major corruption case. It was claimed that his heart is congested, had a stroke, and some other complications While this is a classic excuse for politicians here, it is the first time a picture came out as a "proof". But the photo has many strange things such as smiling wife that looks like saying "Hey honey, wake up, we are being photographed" and a flat line electrocardiogram. Maybe someone with medical qualification can explain more what's wrong in this one picture...
  18. Reminds me of Athens 2004 opening section

  21. INDONESIAN ENTRY Chrisye - Seperti Yang Kau Minta (Like What You Wanted) Lyrics: Maafkan aku tak bisa memahami maksud amarahmu, (Sorry I can't understand the meaning of your anger) Membaca dan mengerti isi hatimu. (Reading and understanding your heart) Ampuni aku yang telah memasuki kehidupan kalian, (Forgive me who have entered your life) Mencoba mencari celah dalam hatimu (Trying to find a opening in your heart) Aku tahu ku takkan bisa menjadi seperti yg engkau minta, (I know I can't be like what you wanted) Namun selama nafas berhembus aku kan mencoba.... menjadi seperti yang kau minta (But as long as I can breathe I will try... To be like what you wanted) Ampuni aku yang telah memasuki kehidupan kalian (Forgive me who have entered your life) Mencoba mencari celah dalam hatimu (Trying to find a opening in your heart) Aku tahu ku takkan bisa menjadi seperti yg engkau minta (I know I can't be like what you wanted) Namun selama nafas berhembus aku kan mencoba (But as long as I can breathe I will try..) Aku tahu dia yang bisa menjadi seperti yang engkau minta (I know he can be the one just like what you wanted) Namun selama aku bernyawa aku kan mencoba.... menjadi seperti yang kau minta (But as long as I'm alive I will try... To be like what you wanted) Aku tahu ku takkan bisa menjadi seperti yang engkau minta (I know I can't be like what you wanted) Namun selama nafas berhembus aku kan mencoba (But as long as I can breathe I will try... To be like what you wanted) Aku tahu dia yang bisa menjadi seperti yang engkau minta (I know he can be the one just like what you wanted) Namun selama aku bernyawa aku kan mencoba menjadi seperti yang kau minta (But as long as I'm alive I will try... To be like what you wanted) Seperti yang kau minta, aku kan mencoba menjadi seperti yang kau minta (I know I can't be like what you wanted) Bio: Christian Rahadi (16 September 1949 – 30 March 2007) but better known by his stage name of Chrisye, was an Indonesian progressive pop singer and songwriter. In his 40-year career he won many awards and accolades; in 2011 Rolling Stone Indonesia declared him the third-greatest Indonesian musician of all time. Known for his stiff stage persona and smooth vocals, Chrisye was critically acclaimed in Indonesia. Chrisye died on 30 March 2007 at his home after battling with lung cancer for 2 years - Wikipedia
  22. So yesterday we won gold (and silver) in women's singles tennis and our gold medalist Beatrice Gumulya was booed on the third set because she can't finish the game (she was leading 5-1 and then 40-15 on 5-3) by the crowd. Guess they want to go home ASAP

    I don't live in Bali nor affected by it.. But yeah it's a bit worrying since the tremors are extremely strong. Balinese people in other cities and towns started to offer their houses as a temporary shelters for those who are affected. It's just really, really nice gesture.
  24. But in their promo they used indoor equestrian arenas..... Lol
  25. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    Have to agree on this. In badminton they decided to change the usual circle to 'whatever I just want the BWF logo shape' which I found pretty annoying
