I was expecting somebody to say this.......a big WTF i said when i read that "sport".

 

This is only the "bonus" sport/event that PASO has been giving to host countries since 2007. Shouldn't be on the program tough, this "sport" is full of dopers.

So Peru chose this? Didn't know they were good in Bodybuilding.

 

I remember Brazil went with Futsal in 2007 which was a good choice (gold), but it was only ONE event.

Peru chose Basque pelota and bodybuilding. However, surfing was their primary choice, but that was auto added because of its addition to Tokyo 2020.

Canada didn't choose a sport in 2015, but rather a event (women's baseball), which has been dropped from Lima 2019.

And Mexico added Basque Pelota (4 events), while Canada added Women's Baseball.

 

I don't know if they are good, but the sport is popular in that country, so maybe they're expecting a medal. Remember Peru is far from being competitive even at this level.

 

I think they're expecting gold in Men's Singles squash, plus some outside chances in Karate and Surf.

Maybe they can also win one of the long distance events in Athletics, but probably they will end with the least amount of gold medals won by a host nation in quite some time.

They only won 2 in Toronto, wow. Maybe they will win 5-6 this time around, but I can also see it going the other way around.

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:"

 

yeah Indonesia won the gold medal in men's team Poomsae event at the AIMAG 2017 but they beat Iran by a very small margin and South Korea didn't participate. they most probably will win all 4 Poomsae gold medals. but winning silver/bronze is better than winning nothing I guess.

 

 

well OCA website is publishing more details about the events and I'm getting more and more upset and disappointed  . I thught we will have 17 Canoe sprint events but nope . 5 of them will be traditional boat race (Dragon boat right ?)

 

in boxing they dropped 3 heaviest weights !!!!!!! which means 75kg will be heaviest weight there,  :facepalm:

in wegihtlifting they dropped the most prestigious class ! the supper heavyweight !! another sure gold for Iran is gone ! even though I think IWF will change the weight classes completely because of 7+7 rules for Tokyo Olympics. so I assume this is not final

 

in shooting they changed the whole program. we will have 15 Olympic events plus few more . guess what ? 10m running target and running target mixed !!! plus 300m rifle !

 

I was wrong about table tennis, we will have team events actually but they dropped both men and women double ! (mixed doubles will be there )

 

------------

 

with this program, Indonesia won't finish worst than 4th , I think there is even a chance for catching Japan for the 3rd place. as for Iran, we are losing so many gold medal chances, I'm not saying we are without chance in these new events . we will win silver and bronze medals but I care more about gold medals at the Asian Games.

 

the only good news is this time we will have the Asian Games two months before the World Champs in Wrestling (which is always our best sport to win multiple gold medals), which means we can send our top team to Jakarta. in past editions that was mostly a mixture of A and B teams. and they were mostly very tired after the World Champs. if we want to win something around 20 gold medals. we need wrestling to win at least 6-7 gold medals.
