They're not that good... is just that there's no current rivals for them in South America, but still they're way behind Canada, Mexico and USA.

I talk in south american level, of course, they probably will win all the medals.

Looks like the Asian Games organizers finally confirmed 462 events for Jakarta 2018. even though it's really hard to find the details . but this pic shows the initial list

?id=650973&width=720

 

and we had few changes this week .

 

they dropped 3 events from Boxing, 2 from Sambo and Cycling, 1 from Kurash, Wushu, Karate and Ju-jitsu

instead they added 2 events in Taekwondo and Shooting, 4 in Sport Climbing and 3 in Archery.

 

the Taekwondo program is really funny, they dropped non-Olympic events to have boring stupid Poomsae competition !! later they added two more non-Olympic events. (63kg men, 53kg women), probably because Indonesia is good in these two weights ?! :d

 

in all other sports they dropped the heaviest weight. again because people in East Asia are not that heavy ! in Cycling they dropped the both BMX freestyle events. they added 3 in Archery, we were supposed to have full Recurve program (individual, team, mixed team) now we have 3 compound events ! Iranian sources claim they will be team compound (me and women and mixed) but that doesn't make sense, probably both individual events and mixed team.

 

they didn't change their initial proposal to drop team events in Table tennis, tennis and soft tennis but not in badminton ! guess why ? :d

the only "positive" is to see 17 events for Sprint Canoeing, their original plan was 12 Olympic events

Poomsae because Indonesia is quite strong :p

And yes 63 kg and 53 kg is where our best athletes are in :p

 

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 :p

 

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 ":facepalm:"
