UncategorisedAsian Games end in style

September 11, 201914

?The 18th Asian Games closed at a glittering ceremony in Jakarta on Sunday, bringing down the curtain on a two-week tournament featuring 40 sports.
A show of Indonesia’s rich cultural traditions was highlighted at the closing ceremony, witnessed by a full-house crowd at Gelora Bung Karno stadium.
The ceremony reflected peace, stability, togetherness and prosperity, emphasised particularly by the two Koreas unifying for the first time at an Asian Games.
Bahrain’s delegation, headed by Bader Nasser, were among thousands of athletes from 45 nations in ponchos marched in heavy rain at the stadium at the close of a two-week tournament featuring 40 sports.
The Kingdom’s heroes made the best-ever appearance in the history of the game, having won 26 medals in total (12 gold, 7 silver, 7 bronze) and were 11th overall out of 45 countries.
China were declared overall winners with an unprecedented 289 medals, including a whopping 132 gold. Japan (205 medals) were second, followed by South Korea (177) in third place and host nation Indonesia (98) fourth.
“I declare the 18th Asian Games closed,” said Shaikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, president of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), at the ceremony.
Shaikh Ahmad also called on all sportspersons of the continent to meet in four years at Hangzhou, in China, and the symbolic handing over of the OCA Flag to Mayor of Hangzhou Xu Li Yi.
The most poignant moment of course was when the Asian Games flame was extinguished bringing a hush in the stadium.

    467382 638583Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone! 983405

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really one thing which I believe I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely large for me. I am taking a look ahead on your next publish, I will try to get the grasp of it!
