    Typhoid Kept Him From Worlds; Now Shuttler Markis Has SEA Fever




    After missing out on another world title because of typhoid, Markis Kido is looking forward to the next big thing.
    With longtime men’s doubles partner Hendra Setiawan, Markis is targeting his fourth gold medal at the Southeast Asian Games.

    “Everyone might be wondering why we’d like to join the national team to play at the Games,” Markis said on Sunday. “For me, it is the title that matters. I want to win it for the fourth time, this time in front of our home crowd.”

    The world No. 7 pair will have their chance, but for the two men’s doubles spots in Indonesia’s SEA Games squad they will have to beat out Bona Septano and Mohammad Ahsan, as well as eighth-ranked Alvent Yulianto Chandra and Hendra Aprida Gunawan.

    Bona and Ahsan are the top-ranked men’s doubles pair in the country, moving up to No. 6 in the world after reaching the semifinals of the World Championships in London last week.


    Markis said he was ready to fight for his place but that younger shuttlers should be given priority for events like the SEA Games.

    “Regeneration must continue. I think Bona and Ahsan showed during the Worlds that they were ready to replace me and Hendra as the nation’s number one pair,” Markis said. “It is their time.”

    SEA Games rules limit countries to two representatives in singles and doubles events, but they can have up to 10 men’s and women’s entries in team events.

    The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) announced its provisional squad of 23 on Saturday. Team manager Maria Fransisca said the final list would be announced at the end of this month, which is the entry deadline for November’s SEA Games.

    “The men’s doubles will be the hardest one to decide since those three pairs are close in the world ranking,” Maria said.

    For men’s singles, PBSI is considering five shuttlers, led by world No. 5 Taufik Hidayat. The others are Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Simon Santoso, Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka and 17-year-old Shesar Hiren Rustavito.

    Sony, Maria said, was still struggling to recover from a back injury but would likely join Taufik if he recovered in time.

    In women’s singles, four players in the national training camp are preparing for the Games. They are Adriyanti Firdasari, Lindaweni Fanetri, Aprilia Yuswandari and Maria Febe Kusumastuti.

    In the provisional list, the PBSI named two pairs each for women’s and mixed doubles: Greysia Polii and Meiliana Jauhari as well as Vita Marissa and Nadya Melati in women’s doubles, and Tontowi Ahmad with Liliyana Natsir and Fran Kurniawan with Pia Zebadiah Bernadet in mixed doubles.

    The PBSI is aiming for four gold medals in this year’s Games, which would match its performance in the 2009 event in Vientiane, Laos.

    Question 2011 SEA Games: Will LCW be forced to play?

    It was LCW's good intention to give younger MAS MS players a chance to gain experience there. But their current performances are not good enough, so I believe LCW will be forced to play.

    I don't think LCW will play at the SEA Games because the dates coincide with the HKG SS (which he won last year). So, he needs to defend his massive ranking pts.

    LCW won't play at this year's SEA games. MAS's men challenge will be lead by Goh Wei Shem/Lim Khim Wah in doubles and Liew Daren in singles. We would be counted lucky if we can even reach the semi-finals as Singapore will be tough.

    Sports Ministry needs Rp 700b more for SEAG preparations

    The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 08/31/2011 6:30 PM


    Youth and Sports Minister Andi Mallarangeng says his ministry is still waiting for Rp 700 billion from the state budget to finalize the preparations for the Southeast Asian Games in Palembang and Jakarta in November.

    "We hope the funds will be disbursed next month [September] at the latest," said Andi as quoted by tempointeraktif.com on Wednesday.


    Andi said the extra funds would be proposed by his ministry in the revised 2011 state budget, but did not explain how the funds would be disbursed once the proposal was approved.


    He added that his ministry was also looking for alternative funding from private sponsors to help cover the deficit.


    The preparation for the biennial sporting event hit a snag following a bribery scandal implicating secretary to the sports minister Wafid Muharam and contractors developing the athletes' village for the Games. The scandal has also dragged former treasurer of the ruling Democratic Party, Muhammad Nazaruddin, into the legal arena.

    Ramadan Over, SEA Games Preparations Kick Into High Gear

    Ami Afriatni l September 05, 2011

    With Ramadan over, organizers and athletes return to a daunting workload ahead of the Southeast Asian Games.

    Rachmat Gobel, director of Indonesia’s SEA Games organizing committee (Inasoc), has promised a renewed focus on marketing following the end of the fasting month.

    “We will focus on marketing as the Games still needs more sponsors,” he said.

    Inasoc has signed deals with several sponsors, with most of its prestige partners being big companies such as instant noodle maker Indofood Sukses Makmur, flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, media group MNC, communications provider Indosat and electronics firms Panasonic and Samsung.

    Sponsorships are crucial to the Games as organizers have trimmed staff and expectations amid budget shortfalls. Sports federations have also felt the pinch, with several cutting back on training camps or making do with inferior equipment as money proves scarce.

    Regardless of funding issues, co-host cities Palembang and Jakarta must prepare to hold test events prior to November’s SEA Games. The South Sumatra capital will host test events in nearly 20 sports beginning this month.

    Success story of a sporting event begins since the very first day the event is officially held. That is why the opening and closing ceremonies have been major concerns of the Indonesia SEA Games Organizing Committee (Inasoc).

    The organizers has vowed to make the Games something to remember through the ceremonies.

    "In every multi-sports event such as SEA Games, Asian Games and Olympic, the opening and closing ceremonies have been capturing public's attention," said Rachmat Gobel, Inasoc Director General.

    In that matter, the organizers proudly announced the names of the country's best talents to get involved in the ceremonies.

    Indra Yudhistira as the event director and conceptor will be working together with top music director, Erwin Gutawa to present a performance show that will be unforgettable. Top choreographers such as Ari Tulang, Deddy Pudja, Hartati, and Alex Hassim will start working with percussionist Ade Rudiana.

    Indonesia's top singer and actress Agnes Monica in the ceremonies will proudly sing the Games' theme song, that will be released during the 100 day towards the SEA Games kick off ceremony on... Agnes will be collaborating with the Phillipines' top singer Lea Salonga and Malaysian Idol Jacklyn Victor.

    "It is a very exciting moment to work together with the country's best artists to present something for the country that will be remembered forever," Rachmat added.

    Indra, who is also Inasoc's Head of Deputy IV, said it will be a big challenge for the organizers to bring something different from previous events.

    "Indonesia is rich with cultures. Together with these artists, we will give something different in Palembang that would be a good memory for everyone," Indra said.

    There would be 150 pieces of orchestra, 1,000 rampak gendang (traditional drum performance), and 5,000 dancers involved in the ceremonies combined with high-tech performance using the biggest LED cyclorama, moving stages, and giant picture projection.

    Shuttlers Get More Time to Impress Before SEA Games

    National shuttlers have more work ahead of them to make it into the Southeast Asian Games squad.

    The Indonesia Gold Program (Prima), which oversees training camps for of the Games, has extended the deadline for national sports federations to submit their entry forms from the end of this month to the end of September.

    For the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI), that means more time to oversee shuttlers’ progress.

    “There is plenty of time for us to carefully select the candidates. We will see their progress in several upcoming tournaments before deciding who will be selected for the final squad,” team manager Maria Fransisca said.

    One of the tournaments is Taiwan Open Grand Prix Gold. Most national shuttlers will take part in the Sept. 6-11 event, including 2010 runners-up Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir.

    The PBSI has submitted its provisional squad of 23 for the Games, which take place Nov. 11 to 22 in Jakarta and Palembang.

    For men’s singles, the PBSI is preparing five names, led by world No. 5 Taufik Hidayat. The others are Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Simon Santoso, Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka and 17-year-old Shesar Hiren Rustavito.

    Sony, Maria said, was still struggling to recover from a back injury but would likely join Taufik if he recovered in time.

    In women’s singles, four players are in the national training camp. They are Adriyanti Firdasari, Lindaweni Fanetri, Aprilia Yuswandari and Maria Febe Kusumastuti.

    The PBSI named two pairs each for women’s and mixed doubles: Greysia Polii and Meiliana Jauhari as well as Vita Marissa and Nadya Melati in women’s doubles, with Tontowi and Liliyana competing in mixed doubles as well as Fran Kurniawan with Pia Zebadiah Bernadet.

    Men’s doubles is the association’s biggest headache, with three pairs fighting for two berths. While Markis Kido has recovered from the typhoid that saw him miss the World Championships, he and partner Hendra Setiawan face tight competition from sixth-ranked Bona Septano and Mohammad Ahsan and eighth-ranked Alvent Yulianto Chandra and Hendra Aprida Gunawan.

    The PBSI is targeting four gold medals in this year’s Games, matching its performance at the 2009 event in Vientiane, Laos.

    Elsewhere, Indonesia secured two titles at the Vietnam Open Grand Prix on Sunday. Women’s doubles pair Nitya Krishinda Maheswari and Anneke Feinya Agustine earned their first title since being paired together earlier, ousting second-seeded Shinta Mulia Sari and Yao Lei of Singapore with a 23-21, 26-24 victory.

    Young men’s doubles pair Angga Pratama and Rian Agung Saputra grabbed another title when they beat Singapore’s Chayut Triyachart and Danny Bawa Chrisnanta, 21-12, 16-21, 21-19. It was their first title after a year as partners.

    SBY signs 2 decrees to speed up SEA Games preparations

    The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 09/16/2011 10:26 AM

    A presidential palace official said that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has signed two presidential decrees allowing the SEA Games committee to manage its own funding and goods procurement.

    “The committee can use the two decrees immediately,” presidential spokesman Julian Aldrin Pasha said Thursday night as quoted by kompas.com.

    Julian added that the President had mulled over signing the decrees for three consecutive days before finally he agreed.

    Earlier, officials warned that the organization of this year's SEA Games, to be held in Palembang, South Sumatra, could be delayed due to slow preparations. The delays, they said, were unavoidable because of a late disbursement of government funding.

    Singapore's Men's relay team aim to make a statement at the SEA Games


    by Low Lin Fhoong
    05:30 AM Sep 19, 2011

    SINGAPORE - The Republic's 4x100m men's relay team are looking to upset perennial favourites Thailand at the upcoming SEA Games in Indonesia from Nov 11 to Nov 22.

    After storming to prominence at the last edition of the Games in Laos, where the quartet of Gary Yeo, Muhammad Elfi Mustafa, Lee Cheng Wei and Muhd Amirudin Jamal (picture) set a national record of 39.82sec en route to the silver medal, the squad - with reserves Calvin Kang and Lim Yao Peng - have been set a loftier goal: Crack the Singapore record, beat the Thais and bring home the gold.

    Speaking to Today last Friday, relays coordinator Melvin Tan said: "We are quietly hoping to spring a surprise and beat the Thais but it will certainly take a national record to win the gold medal.

    "There have definitely been some setbacks these past two years but we are used to it. I think the athletes are motivated. We are trying to keep them injury-free and in peak condition for the Games."

    Plagued by injuries last season, the runners have been making steady progress since.

    At last month's World University Games, Kang, Amirudin, Lee and Yeo clocked 40.44s to finish fourth in the final. The race was won by South Africa (39.25s) with China (39.39s) taking silver and Hong Kong (39.44s) the bronze.

    Prior to that, the quartet finished seventh in 40.24s at the 19th Asian Athletics Championships with Thailand's Narakorn Chaiprasert, Wachara Sondee, S Suwannarangsri and Jirapong Meenapra clocking 39.72sec to take fifth place.

    Yeo and Lee are well on their way to recovering from knee injuries while Elfi suffered a pulled hamstring at last month's Puma Festival of Faas.

    A time trial will be held three weeks before the SEA Games to pick the fastest four.

    Tan is also hopeful that Elfi and Yeo can deliver an individual medal in the Games' 100m final. Two years ago, in Vientiane, Amirudin was pipped to the bronze by Indonesia's Fadlin by 0.01s.

    Said Tan: "There is a possibility of a medal as Gary and Elfi have done season-best times of 10.62s and 10.59s and I think they can run even faster."
