The Olympics have apparently been going on, and just finished. Indonesia finished 43rd in the medal standings.
- Badminton, 1 gold (men's doubles - Markis Kido, Hendra Setiawan)
- Badminton, 1 silver (mixed doubles - Nova Widianto, Liliyana)
- Badminton, 1 bronze, (women's - Maria Kristin Yulianti.)
- Weightlifting, 2 bronze (Eko Yuli Irawan & Triyatno).
Other Asean -
- Thailand, 32nd, 2 gold, 2 silver
- Malaysia, 74th, 1
- Singapore, 76th, 1 silver.
- Vietnam, 79th, 1 silver.
- Philippines, nowhere/nothing.
So not a bad result in comparison, given the situation of sport in these countries.
