    I peeked to Turkmen Sport TV and I saw the weirdest laser show ever in the opening (tanker truck laser projection, wtf)

    Yea database would be good.. Wrong anthem is so yesterday. But with this method, you can blame other people for the mistake. So when it hits the headlines, you can just say "We used what they gave to us! How come you blame us? I don't know why the file named Kazakhstan.mp3 isn't the Kazakh anthem" Unlike that confused Korean anthem scandal in Indonesia AFC U-19, where the operator himself just downloaded all the participating countries' anthem then (I suspect) mistakenly pressed the first file named "Korea" in the folder

    I suddenly remembered about arguing with some so-called religious guys in a Facebook comment section about the "thousands of condoms for Rio 2016" news, they said Indonesian athletes should boycott Rio 2016 since it encourages sex activities

    I don't think Olympic posters collection are going to expand, unless you count "e-posters" Pins are much more worth it, since I've seen our athletes collected them and many countries have different pins per for each editions (even two or three different pins from the same country in one Olympic) -> but don't blame me if one day you are broke

    Perhaps they aren't going to pass through the citizenship test? Not sure about "why didn't try to enter the country in a legal way" though, maybe they just love risky challenges In Indonesia, many women from rural areas worked as housemaids in the Middle East and they don't have work permit and sometimes doesn't understand Arabic (in extreme case even they are not fluent in Indonesian!). How risky is that? Maybe you can relate about the refusal of "try to enter the country in a legal way" from this case.

    Indonesian audio operator decided to play North Korean Anthem during South Korean team AFC U-19 match. The correct anthem is played afterwards. However, even AFC caught off guard and uploaded the North portion in their Youtube before they deleted it... This is what happens if they don't hire an anthem expert like me
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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

    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

    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.
