  1. So Indonesia should be the best venue for road races, since some random women brought some pans and pots to support every cyclist in Asian Games
  2. I think they just don't want it because there will be no belt wrestling and all those Turkic themed sports. They aren't AZE and KAZ who have good athletes
  3. FISU proposed Seoul-Pyongyang to rescue the falling apart 2021 Summer Universiade. Their original backup plan was.... Turkmenistan. http://world.kbs.co.kr/service/news_view.htm?Seq_Code=139981
  4. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    3-4 Would you believe it...
  5. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Who'd expect 3-3 ?
  6. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Well.. Despite the bad broadcast choice, bad timezone, a couple of hate emails sent and confusing formats, in the end you will just get caught watching a random event
  7. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    I think it's because of the passport, since the names in multievent strictly follows the name stated there. Recently during the Asian Games, some of our athletes got "name changes" to match their passports. I am somewhat annoyed that not all culture can get their name displayed correctly, such as Indonesian/Indian athletes with one word name got them repeated or the super long Iranian surname which is actually just missing a space.

    Came back to watch the 3x3 and oh boy how exciting was it
  9. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Just realized TV Pública Argentina also got some events, another help to stay away from the Olympic Channel website
  10. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    A present to Olympic Champion in Fencing 1976
  11. [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread

    Ratna Sarumpaet.. Perhaps the biggest joke of the year in term of Indonesian political drama.
  12. [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread

    Meanwhile in Indonesia... One of the pro-opposition and vocal critic of the current president faked an assault case, while she actually has just got some plastic surgery to combat her wrinkles. All the opposition MP began accusing the government as evil regime etc, but after a police investigation.. it turned to be a hoax. Even the leader of the opposition (also candidate for the next election) believed her Then she publicly apologized, citing she is too shy to admit that she had a plastic surgery. They never learned how to fake a medical conditions, just like the guy who pretend to be hospitalized with a flat-line monitor I shared a while back here
  13. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Well... if you add up the whole wrestling clips from the daily highlights it will be more than a minute...
  14. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    I think for some reason IOC just hate Indonesia.. Every time they're going to play, the main Youtube stream just switch sports (and I hate the Olympic Channel website). I mean, c'mon, this is not how you should treat a 2032 bidder
  15. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Frenchman Merkle lost to Japan in badminton bronze medal match. Non -Asian still can't touch medal in badminton. But wait, there's Santa Mixed NOC ready to share medals
  16. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    I'm not sure whether to give 'sad' or 'haha' react
  17. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Now I know why everyone was looking for this lol I thought they love seeing Aussies smashing the Zambians
  18. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    Welcome back, Erzurum?
  19. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    I feel you.. Just like me when voicing my disapproval and doubt when Indonesia is bidding for 2032 Summer Games. My close friends even said "Why can't you be optimistic with this country? We have 14 years!".
  20. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    I think I am just too excited about this issue @dcro I wrote to info@olympicchannel.com, since I am pretty sure they will respond it quite fast (which is true)
  21. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Basically just complained about how I can't watch some sports, then adding more drama with "Olympic shouldn't just promoting gender equality but also equality in sport streaming". Also add words like "extreme decline since Nanjing 2014" and "I can not imagine what will happen in 2022 if this issue is not resolved".
  22. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    And after that reply, I tried to become a d**k by spamming Olympic Channel streams with: "If they can't broadcast more sports we will only have 5 sports live in Dakar 2022." One Indian user thought I was serious
  23. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    I did write to them when I was frustrated when I can't see women's 53 kg in weightlifting, and they replied: Thank you for contacting the Olympic Channel about YOG live streams and we hear your frustration. The Olympic Channel is streaming all events that the Host Broadcaster and IOC are producing. Unfortunately, production is not available to us for all 239 YOG events. If you do not see your desired event listed, then a live stream is not available. Although we realize it is not the same as watching competition, we will provide coverage of all sports at the YOG, including those without live streams, via highlights on our 24/7 YOG Channel. Hope this helps and enjoy the Games. Hope this answers
  24. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    I think as long as sliding track is needed, the future for Winter Olympic Games is dark. Unlike Summer editions where any ambitious Asian country can just step in and grab the hosting rights.
  25. Asian Para Games 2018

    Well.. this time they use local host broadcasters, so they use a national (yes, not international) standard. They thought they can cover events like this.. They did not know it is being streamed at the Paralympic Channel and the whole world can watch it
