Waterskier Leong wins Indonesia Open, tipped for SEA Games gold

Waterskier Leong wins Indonesia Open, tipped for SEA Games gold | Indonesia News | Scoop.it
SINGAPORE — If he keeps up his current form, Singapore national water skier Mark Leong could well be a gold medal contender at the South-east Asian (SEA) Games in June this year.


The 16-year-old won the men’s slalom final at the Indonesia Open in Bandung yesterday in a national record, rounding three buoys on a 12m rope. He rewrote his own previous national mark of one buoy on a 12m rope. He finished ahead of Indonesia’s Indra Hardinata and Daud Fath Wangka, who shared second place, with Eka Fajar Samudra placed third.


But the fact that he beat SEA Games favourites Daud and Indra, who won gold and bronze medals, respectively, in the men’s slalom at the 2011 SEA Games, has given Singapore Waterski and Wakeboard Federation president Paul Fong confidence the SEA Games gold medal is definitely within reach for Mark.


“Mark is definitely one of the favourites for the SEA Games gold (in men’s slalom). Anything can happen on that day of competition,” said Fong, who is also his coach.


“Mark will train four to five times a week at the Bedok Reservoir, which is the venue for the SEA Games competition and our home ground. In fact, I believe he can go as far as (becoming) a champion at the Asian Games one day.”


The 1.88m-tall Mark, who is a Secondary Four student at Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road), had underlined his potential after beating Roger Koa’s 20-year-old national record at the Asian Beach Games in Phuket in November last year.


In a phone interview from Bandung yesterday, Mark said the meet was a valuable opportunity to see where he stood in the region ahead of the SEA Games in Singapore.


“The other competitors really put up a fight, and they were truly formidable,” he said. “It was a really good preparation towards the SEA Games as I will be up against the same athletes.”


The last time waterskiing featured at the SEA Games was at the 2011 edition in Palembang, where Singapore’s medallists included Sasha Christian (women’s wakeboard gold, women’s slalom silver and overall bronze), Kalya Kee (women’s wakeboard silver) and Christian Kheng (men’s wakeboard bronze).

Indonesia facing overpopulation crisis?

Indonesia facing overpopulation crisis? | Indonesia News | Scoop.it

You know a country is overpopulated when people cannot afford to queue. In Indonesia this is visible every day at bus and train stations.

Transport facilities have long lost their battle with exploding demand.

Even the most polite people turn into animal-like creatures when a bus or train arrives. Something that might have looked like a queue disappears instantly and the best and most aggressive pushers are getting on board. Unless every inch inside the vehicle is taken already.

I have learned this the hard way. Trying to be polite will cost you many hours of waiting on a weekly basis. The only real queues are the long lines of cars queuing patiently day-in, day-out on nearly every stretch of road in every major city. Yes, it is that bad.

Onboard a bus or train, the situation is hardly any better. I cannot help thinking about sardines. Passengers, deep in each other’s private space, have one thing in common: An empty gaze on their faces revealing their attempt to temporarily exit from humanity.

These daily scenes remind me of those ahead of the Eid festival when rich people hand out money to the poor who die fighting for a few dollars. Or those of children offered candy. Rarely-seen aggression on their innocent faces when they are trying to get their share. Politely waiting for your turn is only affordable to those who know there is enough for everyone.

Demographic experts warn this is just the beginning. If the population boom continues, Indonesia will face problems a lot worse than transport nightmares or people fighting for small cash.

Already Indonesia is facing housing, water and food shortages and massive natural destruction. For years now, the country has imported basic food like rice because there are not enough fields to grow food for its 250 million people. These food shortages will only get worse according to experts.

Not many Indonesians would blame overpopulation for these problems. Ineffective government, corruption, God or nature - anything but the size of their families is to blame. An important credo says "many children means many benefits". The idea that children are the safest retirement plan is still prevalent. And with democratisation the country has given its people the liberty to produce as many as they like.

Meanwhile, the government proudly keeps citing statistics. Indonesia, the fourth largest country in the world, the third largest democracy, the tenth largest economy.

The word overpopulation has turned into a much more friendly term: demographic bonus; hundreds of millions of people are an interesting crowd for investors, or when it comes to power on a geopolitical level.

But what about quality of life? A term more frequently used now. When are Indonesians finally getting tired of battling for survival or simply struggling to get to work every day?

With a fast-growing middle class, the demand for quality of life is increasing around the country. Fresh air, clean drinking water, proper education, efficient public services will all be just a dream for most Indonesians as long as the credo "more children, more benefits" still exists.
