    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.

    Football 2018 Discussion Thread

    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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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

    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.

    Ratna Sarumpaet.. Perhaps the biggest joke of the year in term of Indonesian political drama.

    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

    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

    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!".

    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)

    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".
