Indonesia's sports official concern about poor showing in Doha
font size    

Indonesia's State Minister for Youth and Sports Affairs Adhyaksa Dault expressed concern over Indonesia's poor showing in the Doha Asian Games after meeting national sportsmen on Wednesday.

"We will form a task force involving the National Sports Council, the State Ministry for Youth and Sports Affairs and sports associations to make a thorough evaluation of the Asian Games," Adhyaksa said in Doha.

Indonesian athletes only grabbed two golds, two silvers and 10 bronzes through day 12 of the Games. But four years ago in Busan, South Korea, Indonesia brought home four golds, four silvers and 12 bronzes.

"Umar even promised to fight to the death if necessary to win the gold medal," Adhyaksa said, referring to karate which had been seen as a potential gold mine for Indonesia.

Indonesia's karete team has only left Umar Sjarief, the 2005 South East Asian Games gold medallist, who will compete in the over-80 kg, and Donny Dharmawan, who will fight in the men's under- 60 kg on Wednesday. There are another two athletes both lost in the semifinals on Tuesday.
