Indonesia places 15th overall in the Asian Games in Guangzhou, bitterly, behind Malaysia but triumphantly ahead of Singapore, just.

Asiad, the Asian Games, was held from November 12th-27th in Guangzhou and nearby cities in China with 45 countries participating, 9,700 odd athletes, 42 sports and 476 individual events.

The host nation predictably dominated the medals tally, with 199 gold medals, over 100 golds clear of second placed Korea.

Plucky Indonesia came in at 15th place in the gold medal tally, with these wins:

  • Badminton: Men's Doubles
  • Dragon Boat: Men's 1000m Straight Race
  • Dragon Boat: Men's 500m Straight Race
  • Dragon Boat: Men's 250m Straight Race

And nine silver and thirteen bronze, for a total of 26, putting the country in 14th place in the overall medal count. See the full list of Indonesian medalists.


The Men's Doubles Final, with Hendra Setiawan & Markis Kido giving their Malaysian opponents a thrashing.

    I remember watching a football World Cup qualifier match between Indonesia and Uzbekistan, not too many years since the fall of the Soviet Union, and thinking to myself — that’s it, SE Asia will *never* get a place in the finals.

    Indonesia neck-and-neck with Singapore with 4 gold medals each. However, Indonesia has 243 million people, versus Singapore’s 4.7 million – what gives? The rather surprising laggard is India – 14 gold medals to show despite having a population of 1,173 million, behind even Iran and Kazakhstan.

    Gold medal per million population:
    India: 0.0119
    Indonesia: 0.0165
    Singapore: 0.8511

    KONI should disband for obvious reasons.
