Menegpora Harapkan Bonus Asian Games Tak Tersisa

Posted: 04 Nov 2010 03:43 PM PDT

Semarang (ANTARA) - Menteri Negara Pemuda dan Olahraga Andi Mallarangeng berharap bonus yang disiapkan untuk peraih medali pada Asian Games XVI di Guangzhou, China, 12-27 November 2010, tidak tersisa.

"Kalau bisa kita nambah, karena itu berarti banyak medali yang diperoleh Indonesia di Asian Games dan atlet kita mampu meraih prestasi maksimal," katanya saat menghadiri Kejurnas Biliar 2010 di Side Pocket Semarang, Kamis.

Pada SEA Games XXVI di Laos 2009, peraih medali emas mendapat bonus Rp200 juta dan pada pesta olahraga multievent antarnegara Asia di Guangzhou mendatang diberi bonus Rp400 juta.

Kenaikan jumlah ini, kata dia, disesuaikan dengan gengsi event dan persaingan yang tentu saja semakin sengit.

Pada pesta olahraga multievent antarnegara Asia di China mendatang, kontingen Indonesia berjumlah 300 personel terdiri dari atlet, pelatih, manajer, wasit, dokter, masseur, dan ofisial lainnya.

Rombongan besar dijadwalkkan bertolak ke China pada 10 November mendatang dari Jakarta. Indonesia akan mengikti 25 dari 42 cabang olahraga yang dipertandingkan di China mendatang.

Pada Asian Games, Indonesia menargetkan memperbaiki peringkat dari posisi ke-22 pada Asian Games 2006 di Doha, Qatar. (meraih dua emas, empat perak, dan 14 perunggu).

"Realistisnya kami berharap dapat empat emas. Cabang yang akan menjadi andalan di antaranya adalah bulu tangkis, wushu, angkat besi, karate, biliar, dayung, dan balap sepeda," katanya.

Ia berharap pelatih memikirkan strategi yang tepat untuk mencapai target tersebut dan para atlet disiapkan agar titik puncak mereka terjadi di China mendatang.

Ia menambahkan, khusus untuk cabang olahraga biliar yang baru saja menggelar munas (Tutuk Kurniawan terpilih kembali menjadi Ketua Umum PB POBSI periode 2010-2015), dirinya berharap pembibitan terus dilakukan dan dirinya merasa yakin Indonesia bisa lebih baik dari Filipina.

"Sebenarnya kita sama saja dengan Filipina, yaitu cabang olahraga biliar sudah masuk ke desa-desa. Tinggal memikirkan strategi agar bisa lebih hebat dari mereka," katanya menegaskan.(*)

Moria dan Junaedi Dicoret dari Tim Wushu Asian Games

Posted: 04 Nov 2010 03:43 AM PDT

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Dua atlet wushu nasional, Moria (DKI Jakarta) dan Junaedi (Kalbar), terpaksa dicoret dari daftar nama anggota kontingen Indonesia menuju Asian Games XVI Guangzhou, China.

"Hasil test kesehatan Moria dan Junaedi tertanggal 25 Oktober 2010 tidak memenuhi kriteria yang diharapkan Komite Olimpiade Indonesia (KOI). Melalui rapat intern KOI dan PB WI akhirnya diputuskan keduanya tidak dimasukkan dalam daftar tim inti Asian Games XVI," ujar Sekjen PB WI, Ngatino di Jakarta, Kamis.

Keputusan pencoretan kedua atlet wushu nomor shanso itu diterima PB WI tertanggal 4 November 2010, dengan pertimbangan Moria dan Junaedi bobot badannya tidak sesuai dengan kelas yang akan diikuti di Asian Games XVI Guangzhou.

Bobot badan Moria dan Junaedi katanya, hingga kini di atas 60 kg, padahal kelas yang akan diikuti di Asian Games XVI nanti beratnya hanya 60 kg. Dengan begitu keduanya tidak mungkin bisa tampil dalam pertandingan bila dipaksakan berangkat ke Guangzhou.

Pencoretan dua atlet wushu dalam daftar kontingen Indonesia, paparnya, secara otomatis atlet yang bisa turun di Asian Games XVI tersisa enam orang dan kini sedang melakukan latihan intensif di China.

Seperti halnya Lindswel, Susyana Thjan, Ivana Ardelia Irmanto di putri. Sedang di putra menurunkan Aldy Lukman, David Hendrawan, dan Heryanto. Keenam atlet yang melakukan latihan di tiga tempat di China, per 10 November mendatang langsung bergabung di Guangzhou.

Ngatino mengatakan, tercoretnya dua atlet dari nomor sansho tidak akan mempengaruhi target perolehan medali emas dari PB WI. Karena atlet yang berprestasi di tingkat internasional datang dari nomor taulo.

Untuk nomor shanso paparnya, atlet nasional mendapat persaingan ketat terutama datang dari China, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam dan Korea. Dengan begitu paparnya, PB WI tidak merasa kehilangan kedua atletnya dicoret dalam daftar kontingen Indonesia yang akan diberangkatkan ke Guangzhou, 10 November 2010.

Kontingen Indonesia Diterima Presiden Jumat

Posted: 03 Nov 2010 12:13 PM PDT

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono akan menerima sekaligus melepas Kontingen Olahraga Indonesia yang akan mengikuti Asian Games Ke-16 di Guangzhou, China, 12-27 November mendatang. Kontingen akan diterima dan dilepas Presiden di Istana Negara, Jakarta, Jumat sore, demikian dinyatakan Ketua Umum KONI/KOI Pusat Rita Subowo di Jakarta, Rabu petang.

Sebelum diterima Presiden, menurut rencana, Kontingen akan dikukuhkan lebih dulu oleh Menpora Andi Malarangeng bersama-sama dengan Ketua Umum KONI/KOI Rita Subowo di Gedung Serbaguna, Kompleks Gelora Bung Karno, Senayan, Jakarta, Jumat siang. "Teknisnya kontingen akan dikukuhkan dulu baru setelah itu bertolak menuju ke Istana Negara untuk diterima Presiden," tutur Rita.

Kontingen Indonesia berjumlah sekitar 300 personel, terdiri dari atlet, pelatih, manajer, wasit, dokter, masseur, dan ofisial lainnya. Rombongan besar Kontingen Indonesia dijadwalkan akan bertolak dari Jakarta ke Guangzhou pada 10 November pagi. Rombongan akan menuju Guangzhou menggunakan pesawat terbang Garuda Indonesia.

Indonesia akan mengikuti pertandingan 25 dari 42 cabang olahraga yang dipertandingan di Guangzhou nanti. Kontingen Indonesia menargetkan memperbaiki peringkat dari posisi ke-22 (dua emas, empat perak, 14 perunggu) pada Asian Games Ke-15 di Doha, Qatar, 2006 lalu. Pesta olahraga empat tahunan itu akan diikuti oleh 45 negara.

Sebelumnya kontingen Indonesia akan dikukuhkan pada tanggal 7 November dan diterima Presiden tanggal 8 November. Namun jadwal ini berubah karena padatnya jadwal Presiden menerima sejumlah tamu negara, di antaranya Perdana Menteri Australia, Presiden Austria, dan Presiden AS, Barrack Obama antara tanggal 7 hingga 10 November. Karena itulah jadwal Presiden menerima Kontingen Indonesia dimajukan tanggal 5 November.

Selain rombongan besar yang akan berangkat tanggal 10 November, sejumlah atlet masih ada yang berlatih tanding ke luar negeri. Di antaranya atlet menembak berlatih tanding ke Jerman, gulat ke Rumania, loncat indah dan wushu ke China, panahan dan angkat besi ke Korea Selatan, balap sepeda ke Belanda. Para atlet ini akan langsung menuju Guangzhou dari tempat mereka berlatih tanding tersebut.

Sementara itu, China telah menyatakan siap menerima kontingen dari 44 negara. Menurut rencana pada hari jumat Perkampungan Atlet akan dibuka secara resmi. Situs web Asian games menyebutkan Kontingen China akan mendapat kehormatan sebagai kontingen pertama yang menempati Perkampungan Atlet. Kontingen tamu akan menyusul berdatangan antara tanggal 7 dan 12 Oktober.

Perkampungan atlet itu memiliki 49 bangunan apartemen, terdiri dari 3.590 apartemen dan 9.272 kamar. Di Perkampungan Atlet ini juga terdapat ruang makan berkapasitas 3.892 tempat duduk dan buka selama 24 jam. Panitia Penyelenggara telah menyiapkan 800 macam hidangan.

Perkampungan atlet tersebut terletak di Kota Asian Games yang luasnya mencapai 2,73 kilometer persegi. Di Kota Asian Games ini juga terdapat Perkampungan Media dan Perkampungan Petugas Teknis. Selama berlangsung Asian Games tersebut, Guangzhou diprediksi akan kedatangan sekitar 10.000 tamu terdiri atlet, ofisial, dan wartawan.(*)

Kontingen Indonesia Siap Tampil di Asian Games Guangzhou

Posted: 02 Nov 2010 07:49 PM PDT

TEMPO Interaktif,Jakarta:Persiapan kontingen Indonesia untuk Asian Games XVI Guangzhou, Cina, yang bakal berlangsung 12-27 November nanti telah mencapai 95 persen. Chef de Mission kontingen Indonesia Tono Suratman menyatakan seluruh proses persiapan teknis menjelang keberangkatan telah terpenuhi.

"Semua perwakilan dari cabang olahraga telah menyatakan kesiapan mereka," katanya.

Menurutnya, seluruh hal yang dibutuhkan mulai dari akomodasi, transportasi, dan peralatan bagi para atlet sudah disiapkan dengan sangat baik.

Tono menyatakan pihaknya juga berkoordinasi dengan para manajer dari setiap cabang olahraga terkait keberangkatan para atlet. "Akan terdapat beberapa jadwal dan tadi sudah dapat dipastikan tidak terdapat kendala," katanya. Menurut rencana, rombongan besar kontingen akan bertolak ke Guangzhou pada 10 November mendatang. Ada beberapa cabang yang memilih untuk berangkat setelahnya seperti Karate. "Disesuaikan dengan jadwal pelaksanaan pertandingannya," kata Tono menjelaskan.

Selain itu, ada beberapa cabang olahraga yang akan memberangkatkan atletnya langsung dari lokasi pemusatan latihan mereka yang berada di luar negeri. Beberapa di antaranya adalah angkat besi, wushu, panahan, loncat indah, balap sepeda, gulat, anggar, dan tenis meja. Dengan demikian, akan ada 189 atlet dari jumlah total keseluruhan 212 atlet yang akan berangkat dalam rombongan besar.

Sebelum berangkat, Tono melanjutkan, telah disiapkan agenda pelepasan kontingen oleh Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Namun, belum bisa dipastikan waktunya. "Sudah ada dua pilihan yaitu pada tanggal 8 atau 9 November, kami masih menantikan kabar dari Sekretaris Negara," katanya. Sebelum dilepas Presiden, kontingen akan lebih dulu dikukuhkan oleh Menteri Pemuda dan Olahraga pada 7 November mendatang.

Indonesia diharapkan dapat memperbaiki peringkat di Guangzhou nanti. Sebelumnya, pada Asian Games Doha, Qatar, Indonesia menempati urutan ke-22 dengan peraihan dua medali emas, empat perak, 14 medali perunggu. Dua medali emas Indonesia itu diraih melalui cabang bulu tangkis dan boling. "Tentu saja kita menginginkan adanya perbaikan peringkat dari apa yang telah kita capai sebelumnya, saya rasa semua cabang olahraga telah siap," katanya.

Kontingen Indonesia AG Dikukuhkan 7 November

Posted: 02 Nov 2010 09:13 AM PDT

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Pengukuhan Kontingen Indonesia ke Asian Games Ke-16 dipastikan dilaksanakan di Jakarta, 7 November seperti rencana semula, kata Komandan Kontingen Indonesia Tono Suratman.

"Baru saja saya terima informasi dari Wakil Komandan Kontingen, bahwa Kontingen Indonesia akan dikukuhkan tanggal 7 November pukul 15.30 WIB di Kantor Menpora," kata Tono di sela-sela Rapat Persiapan Kontingen Indonesia di Jakarta, Selasa.

Kontingen Indonesia berkekuatan 212 atlet yang akan bertanding pada 25 dari 43 cabang olahraga yang dipertandingkan pada Asian Games di Guangzhou, China, 12-27 November mendatang.

Pengukuhan dilakukan oleh Menpora Andi Malarangeng bersama Ketua Umum KONI/KOI Pusat Rita Subowo. Pengukuhan akan ditandai dengan para atlet mencium bendera Merah Putih.

Seusai pengukuhan, Kontingen Indonesia akan diterima oleh Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono di Istana Negara, Jakarta. Namun, kepastian waktunya masih menunggu informasi dari Protokol Kepresidenan karena Kepala Negara harus menjamu tamu Perdana Menteri Australia dan menyambut kunjungan Presiden AS, Barrack Obama, di Jakarta, 9-10 November.

Kontingen Indonesia dijadwalkan bertolak menuju Guangzhou dari Jakarta pada tanggal 10 November. Rombongan besar ini akan menuju Guangzhou menggunakan pesawat Garuda Indonesia.

Selain rombongan besar tersebut terdapat sejumlah atlet dan ofisial yang akan menyusul, karena mereka masih berlatih tanding ke luar negeri. Di antaranya atlet cabang panahan dan angkat besi yang berlatih tanding ke Korsel, loncat indah dan wushu ke China, balap sepeda ke Belanda, gulat ke Rumania, menembak ke Jerman.

Sementara itu Komandan Kontingen Tono Suratman mengimbau para atlet dan ofisial agar mematuhi aturan yang berlaku di China. Untuk itulah Kontingen Indonesia menerbitkan buku saku sebagai panduan bagi seluruh anggota kontingen tentang apa saja yang dilarang dan apa saja yang sebaiknya dilakukan.

Selain itu juga diterbitkan buku saku tentang nutrisi bagi atlet. Hal ini dianggap penting karena Panitia Penyelenggara Asian Games Guangzhou 2010 menyediakan makanan dalam jumlah berlimpah bagi seluruh kontingen peserta. Dengan adanya buku saku tentang nutrisi ini diharapkan para atlet dapat mendisiplinkan diri tentang makanan apa yang sebaiknya dikonsumsi dan seberapa besar porsinya sesuai dengan cabang olahraga dan kebutuhannya nutrisinya.

Persiapan Atlet Indonesia ke Asian Games Lancar

Posted: 02 Nov 2010 08:21 AM PDT

JAKARTA (Pos Kota) – Persiapan dan perbekalan kontingen Indonesia di ajang Asian Games Guangzhou, Cina, 12-28 November sejauh ini dianggap berjalan lancar. Tanpa target muluk, Ketua Satuan Pelaksana Program Indonesia Emas (Satlak PRIMA), Tono Suratman bahkan mengaku jika atlet sudah berada dalam kondisi siap tempur.

"Dalam rapat tadi kami mengecek kembali kesiapan  kontingen mulai dari kesehatan  atlet hingga perlengkapan merekia di sana. Dan semuanya mengatakan sudah siap tempur. Dengan demikian kini kami tinggal memberikan laporan kepada Menteri Negara Pemuda dan Olaharaga (Menegpora)," aku Tono kepada para waratawan, usai menggelar rapat Satlak PRIMA dengan para pengurus cabang olahraga (cabor) di kantor KONI Pusat, Senayan Jakarta, Selasa (2/11).

Menurut rencana acara pelepasan kontingen besar  digelar di kantor KONI Pusat, 10 November 2010 setelah menemui Menegpora, Andi Mallarangeng dan Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY). Pertemuan dengan menteri sendiri akan digelar di Wisma Menegpora, Jakarta, 7 November 2010.

Namun pertemuan dengan Presiden SBY antara tanggal 8-9 November masih belum bisa dipastikan, lantaran sibuknya jadwal kenegaraan di tengah musibah bencana yang melanda beberapa wilayah di Tanah Air. "Untuk pertemuan dengan bapak menteri sudah bisa dipastikan pada tanggal 7 November mendatang. Tapi dengan bapak Presiden, kami belum bisa memastikan pertemuannya antara tanggal 8 atau 9, sebelum kami melepas kontingen besar pada tanggal 10," jelas Tono.

Acara pertemuan dengan Menegpora dan Presiden SBY sendiri akan dihadiri oleh sekitar 170-an atlet yang masih berada di Tanah Air. Maklum, sebagian kontingen sudah berada di luar negeri untuk menjalankan berbagai try-out yang kemungkinan langsung ke Cina. Kontingen Indonesia yang dikirimkan sendiri berjumlah 293, 212 dianataran atlet dan 281 siasanya dari ofisial.

Sayang, saat ditanya soal target di Asian Games 2010, Tono tidak ingin gegabah. "Soal target, sekali lagi kami tidak ingin muluk-muluk. Tapi secara realistis, kami harus bisa memperbaiki peringkat terakhir di Asian Games Doha, dimana saat  itu kita menempati urutan ke-22," tegasnya. (junius/B)

Indonesia Siapkan 30 Atlet Untuk Defile Pembukaan AG

Posted: 01 Nov 2010 02:43 PM PDT

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia menyiapkan sedikitnya 30 atlet untuk mengikuuti defile di atas perahu mengenakan pakaian adat pada upacara pembukaan Asian Games Ke-16 di Guangzhou, China, 12-27 November 2010.

Informasi yang dihimpun dari sekretariat Kontingen Indonesia di Jakarta, Senin, para atlet tersebut berasal dari berbagai cabang olahraga. Mereka akan mengenakan pakaian adat dari sejumlah provinsi di Indonesia.

Tentang teknis pelaksanaan upacara tersebut sampai kini masih dirahasiakan oleh pihak penyelenggara. Guangzhou ingin memberikan kejutan pada seluruh Asia dan dunia tentang kehebatan negara yang dulu berjulukan Negeri Tirai Bambu ini. Pihak penyelenggara hanya menyatakan akan memberikan kejutan bagi mereka yang menyaksikan langsung maupun yang melalui televisi.

Upacara pembukaan dijadwalkan berlangsung di Pulau Haixinsha di Sungai Mutiara di tengah-tengah Kota Guangzhou, Provinsi Guangdong yang terletak di China bagian Selatan. Sebagaimana dinyatakan Direktur Pembukaan Asian Games Ke-16, Chen Weiya, upacara pembukaan nanti akan berbeda dengan upacara-upacara pembukaan Asian Games atau pesta olahraga lainnya sebelumnya.

"Yang pasti upacara pembukaan nanti sangat berbeda dengan yang pernah Anda saksikan di berbagai multikejuaraan sebelumnya. Kami berharap mereka yang menonton langsung maupun yang menyaksikan lewat televisi di luar negeri, akan memberikan pujian pada inovasi kami," kata Chen sebagaimana dikutip situs resmi Asian Games 2010.

Menurut Chen, upacara pembukaan Asian Game Ke-16 nanti melibatkan personel tidak sebanyak pada upacara pembukaan Olimpiade Beijing 2008. Pada upacara pembukaan Olimpiade Beijing 2008 sebanyak 14.000 personel dilibatkan.

Chen memperkirakan pulau tempat upacara pembukaan berlangsung nanti dapat menampung sekitar 30.000 orang. Mereka akan duduk di bagian barat pulau ini. Bagian tengah pulau ini akan digunakan sebagai pusat panggung upacara pembukaan nanti.

Tempat duduk penonton terletak di sepanjang Sungai Mutiara dan sungai tersebut juga termasuk dalam bagian pertunjukan.

Panitia penyelenggara Asian Games Ke-16 memperkirakan akan ada 25.000 duta olahraga dari 45 negara peserta Asian Games Guangzhou 2010. Jumlah tersebut sudah mencakup wartawan peliput kegiatan multikejuaraan olahraga negara-negara Asia ini.

Kontingen Indonesia Indonesia yang berjumlah 300-an personel akan bertolak ke Guangzhou dari Jakarta, 10 November mendatang.

Indonesia baru sekali menjadi tuan rumah Asian Games yaitu pada Asian Games Ke-4 di Jakarta, tahun 1962. Waktu itu Presiden RI Pertama Ir. Soekarno membangun kompleks Gelora Bung Karno di kawasan Senayan, Jakarta, sebagai tempat berlangsungnya pertandingan Asian Games itu.(*)

India In Asian Games : From Riches To Rags

In current context, it's very difficult to imagine that there was a period when Indian national football team was one of the strongest teams in Asia. India's status as an Asian powerhouse was largely due to Asian Games exploits.

-
Winning Gold in First Asiad

In 1951 the inaugural games were held in New Delhi. Two years before, Syed Abdul Rahim took over as the coach of Indian national team. Innovative and in sync with the changing football world, Rahim was ahead of his time. He had turned Hyderabad City Police into a juggernaut in Indian domestic football.

After a series of trial games, Rahim selected his team. He retained key members of 1948 Olympics team – Sailen Manna, Ahmed Khan, Papen and Mewalal. New faces like Venkatesh and Saleh were added to strengthen the team. Matches were played at the National Stadium in New Delhi.

Six teams participated in the football tournament. Matches were of 60 minute duration. On 5th March India started the campaign with a fine 3-0 win over Indonesia. Mewalal, Venkatesh and Ahmed Khan scored. Right-out Venkatesh was particularly impressive. Next up was Afghanistan, who had travelled to Delhi quite early before the tournament started, to get accustomed to playing surface and the environment. Afghans resorted to rough play when they failed to contain the skilled Indian players, ending the match with 9 men. Mewalal and Venkatesh scored again, Sunil Nandy added the third.

On 10th March a capacity crowd thronged the National Stadium as India played Iran in final. The then President of India Dr Rajendra Prasad and the Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru were present in the stadium to witness the match. India struggled against physically strong Iranian players as goal-keeper B Anthony put on a courageous display. In the end it was Sahu Mewalal who broke the dead-lock. His goal sealed a brilliant gold medal for barefooted Indians. Football was given a huge boost after this triumph.

Indonesia proved to be the nemesis in next edition. In the Manila games of 1954, India began with a 3-2 win over Japan. Couple of days later it slumped to a disappointing 4-0 defeat against Indonesia.

Performance graph went up in the Tokyo games 4 years later. By this time Indian football had undergone its first tactical revolution. Impressed by Gustavo Sebes' Hungary, Rahim disposed the old pyramid system. He adopted the 'WM' formation while using a withdrawn centre-forward. He was helped by a new bunch of skilful players, arguably the best generation of Indian footballers. The point to be noted here is that boots were made mandatory by AIFF by this time.

India started with a 3-2 win over Burma. A 1-2 loss to Indonesia didn't pevent the passage to quarter-finals. A Rahmatullah brace ensured a comfortable 5-2 win over Hong Kong in the quarter final match. India was undone by a tough fixture as they had to play South Korea next day, losing the match 3-1. India lined up against Indonesia for bronze medal, its 3rd match in 3 days. A 4-1 loss ended chances of a medal.

Jakarta Games – Golden moment for Indian football

1962 Jakarta Games brought the finest moment in Indian football history. Rahim supervised a lengthy camp in Hyderabad to prepare his team. The start was hardly auspicious, a 2-0 loss to South Korea. Off-field tensions had gripped the team. Local crowd and authorities bore a partisan attitude, the Indian contingent was booed in every game.

Indian bounced back in fine style. The fearsome trident of PK Banerjee, Chuni Goswami and Tuslidas Balaram tore apart the Thai defence as India won the match by a comfortable 4-1 margin. India's rock at centre-back – Jarnail Singh suffered a head injury in this match and had to get six stitches. Rahim, the great tactician played Arun Ghosh, a wing-back in place of Jarnail. Ghosh was an immediate hit as he continued to occupy the same position for next decade. 20 hours after the Thailand game India faced Japan for a place in next round. In a do-or-die game, India carved out a fine 2-0 win.

South Vietnam waited in semi-final; they had scored 9 goals in group leg. Rahim made a bold tactical switch, putting burley Jarnail as a centre-forward. An exciting match ensued, Rahim's gamble paid off – Jarnail with his robust approach created havoc in opponent defence, as India rushed to a 2-0 lead. Vietnam came back to make it 2-2 before skipper Chuni Goswami scored the winner for India.

4th September, 1962 was one of finest moments for Indian football. Rahim had taken another gamble – replacing Pradyut Burman in goal by Peter Thangaraj. Thangarj's height was an advantage, he insisted. Jeered on by a capacity crowd, India found an unlikely source of support – Pakistan hockey team! There was no case of nerves as the forward line toyed with Korean defence. PK and Jarnail scored as India took a 2-0 lead. A host of chances were missed; Koreans took advantage of an uncharacteristic error from Thangraraj but could not prevent India from winning.

The glorious success in Jakarta amidst of all adversities was the start of the downslide. Rahim saab passed away 10 months later, due to cancer.

How one man’s death started the downslide

Rahim's death signalled the end of a golden age of Indian football. For over a decade he had been a towering figure in football. AIFF struggled to find his replacement. The post of Indian coach soon became a game of musical chairs.

Instability in coaching post affected the performance of the team. The next generation of talented players were never moulded into a strong team, as it happened in previous decade.

Bangkok games in 1966 proved to be disappointing. India failed to defend the gold medal, going out in first round. It managed to beat Malaysia 2-1 but twin losses to Japan (2-1) and Iran (4-1) ended India's campaign. India curiously travelled without a coach for this tournament.

A revival of sorts happened in 1970 Asiad. Coached by PK Banerjee and GM Basha India won bronze. It was a squad filled with talented players. Defence was bolstered by Syed Nayimuddin, Sudhir Karmakar and Chandreshwar Prasad. Shyam Thapa, Subhas Bowmik and Mohammad Habib formed a potent attacking line.

India began with an insipid showing against Thailand, trailing 2-0 at the breather. It came back brilliantly to tie 2-2, Bhowmik scoring a brace. A win against South Vietnam ensured passage to quarter final round. India beat Indonesia 3-0 in the quarter final, but lost to Japan, thanks to a late goal. The fixture list again took toll as a tired Indian team lost to Burma in semi-final.

The match for bronze was particularly memorable. Sudhir Karmakar, dished out a legendary man-marking performance against Japanese striker Kamamoto, perhaps the best in Asia at that time. His performance prompted Sir Stanley Rous, FIFA president, to proclaim him as "Asia's best defender".

The rest of the 70s served as pointers to how Indian football was slowly going backwards. Number of embarrassing losses kept piling up. India conceded 14 goals in 3 games in Tehran '74, including a 7-1 loss to China. Things remained same in Bangkok '78. Despite progressing to quarter final, India lost 3 games out of 4, losing to Iraq (3-0), North Korea (3-1) and Kuwait (6-1).

1980s - Dark Times

In 1982, Asian Games was back in New Delhi. In order to recreate the magic of 1951, an elaborate preparation camp was organized. It was this camp that led to one of the darkest moments in Indian football. On 19th February, 1981, 21 of India's topmost players walked out of the camp. They made it clear that their allegiance was with the clubs. With the transfer season coming up, they wanted to quit the camp. There was public outcry after this. Players were branded as rebels and unpatriotic. Federation was unsympathetic and turned a blind eye to player' demand of better payment for National Camps. In the end both parties came to an agreement but it tainted Indian football. The negative publicity for this incident remained ingrained in public memory for years.

The 1982 games did provide moments of brilliance. India won against Bangladesh and Malaysia, drew with China. It fell in the quarter final against Saudi Arabia.

It was back to square one in 1986 Seoul Games. India lost all 3 games, managing to score only a single goal.

By this time the government had enough. It refused to clear the football team for 1990 and 1994 Asiad.

Encouraging performances in recent games

In 1998 games, the football returned to the fold. India was unlucky to be grouped with a strong Japan team. Despite winning against Nepal, it lost narrowly against Japan.

Before 2002 games India enjoyed a good run, winning LG Cup in Vietnam. Reilable defender Arun Malhotra failed dope test and didn't travel with the team.

Tomba, Alex Ambrose played well as India defeated Bangladesh 3-0. Baichung Bhutia scored a brilliant side volley as India came back from 1-0 down to beat Turkmenistan 3-1. A dubious penalty against China ended India's hopes.

The story was same in 2006 Asian Games. The government again refused to clear the team, AIFF had to pay for expenses to send the football team. India's matches in Doha games were marked by late goals. Pradeep scored from 30 yards against Hong Kong. His 89th min strike got cancelled in 92nd minute, denying India a win. Another goal in 89th minute grabbed a 2-1 win over Maldives. India was undone by a world cupper nation, Iran this time. Sandip Nandy played the match of his life but couldn't stop two goals in last 10 minutes.

In last 2 Asian Games, India has shown signs of improvement from 1980s and 1990s, they missed the quarter final berth losing to teams which played World Cup in the same year. This year there is no World Cup playing nation in India's group. Can the young players spring a surprise? Time will tell.

SBY back in the game, Indonesia ready to lead

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono arrived back in Hanoi on Friday after visiting tsunami-stricken Mentawai to attend the UN-ASEAN Summit where he signaled ASEAN would play a greater global role under Indonesia's chairmanship.

After two quiet days for Indonesia in the ASEAN Summit when it lost its leadership with Yudhoyono leaving Hanoi on Wednesday to inspect relief efforts for victims of the Mentawai tsunami, Southeast Asia's biggest economy can now show some of its 2011 leadership plans.

Yudhoyono proposed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon a more comprehensive cooperation between ASEAN and the UN so that the 10-country grouping could be involved in more areas to help the world body solve global problems.

"We want to be more involved on a range of issues the UN handles such as human rights and development, and achieving MDGs," Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa said.

"This is in line with the President's vision of pushing ASEAN to play a global role. So our theme for our chairmanship next year is that prosperous ASEAN must contribute at the global level."

With Yudhoyono's return, scores of leaders from major countries, including China, Japan and South Korea, directly asked for a bilateral meeting, a sign of the importance of Indonesia as next year's chairman.

Indonesia has slated to hold a bilateral meeting with those countries during the ASEAN Summit, but had to cancel them after Yudhoyono cut short his visit.

"We must rearrange the canceled meeting with those countries as they want to hold a bilateral meeting before the summit ends," an official said.

The Indonesian chairmanship, however, will be challenged by a number of problems faced by the member countries, and has been pushed to find a way to balance its position between the US and China, both wanting to make the region their sphere of influence.

Border disputes among member countries and outsiders, notably China in the South China Sea, will test Indonesian leadership. For instance, regarding South China Sea — a dispute between China and six ASEAN countries — as a non-claimant state to the territory, many expect Indonesia to show impartiality and that it can act as mediator to the disputes.

Marty has made Indonesia's position clear on how potential conflicts in the region can be solved amicably, acknowledging the rise of China's influence and the need for the US to become more involved in East Asia.

Marty said that bilateral and regional solutions through ASEAN on the South China Sea should be complementary, adding that by the end of the day it was the respective country in dispute itself
that should find ways to end the dispute in accordance with international law.

Indonesia's proposal to let the US and Russia join the East Asia Summit next year, a convention of ASEAN and its six partners, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, India and New Zealand, is part of its strategy to create a peaceful region.

"We want to see a dynamic equilibrium in our region," Marty said, arguing there was no preponderant power taking charge in the region.
