How Many Did We Send?

WHOA! It’s the eve of the Olympics of all Olympics! The highly anticipated AND “overly” publicised event of the century – Discovery Channel just won’t stop bombarding us with features and specials in the past 5 years.

The Opening is in a few hours so I won’t be ranting [just yet]. See my previous rant about our Olympic standings here if you want some entertainment.

So, THIS IS IT! How many did we send to the 2008 Beijing Olympics?

Since the venue is practically OUR neighbour, I was hoping that we’d send a lot. As we all know, the more athletes we send – the more chances of getting medals, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah… here’s official tally:

Brunei Darussalam
2 Athletes in 2 Sports

1 Athlete in 1 Sport

3 Athletes in 2 Sports

23 Athletes in 6 Sports

4 Athletes in 2 Sports

33 Athletes in 9 Sports

15 Athletes in 8 Sports

26 Athletes in 5 Sports

51 Athletes in many, many sports (13)

Timor Leste
2 Athletes in 1 Sport

13 Athletes in 8 Sports

Me and my friends will be watching together. I waited for this moment for the past 6 years and here it comes! though im not there in Beijing, I'll be happy to see it on TV. Beijing huang yin ni!!!!

Oh my, gotta sleep now. Gotta wake up early tomorrow to order the pizza I promised them before going to school. Ha! Take That!

Allen Yu said...

By the way "Kuya" Pisanu, I think we really can't send as many athletes as we can because there are qualifying games before athletes get to the eliminations. There are limited slots in the Olympics, you know. I think the southeast asian qualifying games were held in Thailand if im not mistaken. ^^,

curbside_puppet said...

no wayyyyy!!!!

you're in CHINA?

well, i expect malaysia and vietnam to FINALLY make their first gold medal wins. I hope MY philippines would do the same as well as singapore. although my country can win as much as 4 medals, regardless of mint color.

as for indonesia and thailand? its a given that they will win their golds for sure. i expect 5 golds coming from thailand plus a good 2-3 golds from indonesia.

Lol the cat down there is cute

curbside_puppet said...

and oh, if ever you guys come into contact with either Daniel Coakley or Miguel Molina (filipino swimmers), please do give them my warmest hugs. thanks guys! Kop khun mak khrap!

ArchieMD said...

God bless Team Pilipinas!
I smell gold from Tshomlee Go and Toni Rivero.

Tommy for BISEAN said...

No, Allen. Olympic qualifying games were held all over Asia.

It just so happen Thailand has world-class sports facilities and we can't help but accept Internatonal games held on our turf.

I was just wondering why Pisanu did not give the notion of "The Olympics has been a 'for rich countries' in the past and it would always be'...

Hey Pisanu, spit it out. You and I had so much argument on that issue the night you guys flew to China.

The Olympics has become a rich-country get together.

Antonius Bram said...

my country, Indonesia actually sends 24 athletes to the Olympics and not 23. You can read it at Indonesia news portal

Matthew Andrew Aguirre Nagtalon said...

mabuhay ang team philippines!

travelphilippines said...

thailand got its gold already..

Carlos Javier said...

Yup! Gold for Thailand, Prapawadee Jaroenrattanatarakoon in Women's 53kg Weightlifting!

Hi Pisanu,

I've heard that Brunei Darussalam hasn't send their contingent in the olympics after failing to register in time. check out beijing news.

It's sad that a fellow SEA country hasn't send a representative.

Indonesia got their first medal "Bronze" (Eko Yuli Irawan ) in weightlifting.

this doesn't count but there's an indonesian girl in the dutch woman swimming team and she won gold during the relay.

Hi BISEAN!(esp. to Pisanu!)

I've seen the Olympic ceremony in a local network. Asteeg! It really showcased what China is. And the Chinese kept their promise to give us the "best show ever". Congrats to Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia for they already win Olympic medals! While the Philippines is still struggling to capture medal to break our 12 year drought. Hay! But I'm still hoping. Thanks to Go, Rivero and Tañamor!!! I'm also sorry for Brunei that they don't have any representatives in the Games!

Guys, you are very lucky that you're in China right now! Hehe!

Greet me to Sofia and Tommy. I congratulate you for making the best blog in Southeast Asia. Keep on supporting you guys and OUR athletes.

We have to admit it, Thailand is a powerhouse in the region when it comes to sports. Congratulations for their first Olympic gold this 2008.

Hopefully, the Philippines could follow suit...

Anonymous said...

This doesn't count, but a Eurasian, Filipina-Irish, Natalie Coughlin from the USA has won gold medal in the 100 backstroke and a silver in the 4x100 freestyle relay, she has yet to swim in 3 more races.

FunkaTronik said...

Indonesia finnaally.. got their GOLD medal (Badminton)

ihcahieh said...

Please update the medal tally marquee:

Gold - Silver - Bronze

1-1-3 Indonesia
1-0-0 Thailand
0-1-0 Viet Nam
0-1-0 Malaysia
0-1-0 Singapore

0-0-0 Philippines
0-0-0 Laos
0-0-0 Myanmar
0-0-0 Cambodia
0-0-0 Timor Leste

0-0-0 Brunei

Sad that we have not won any medals yet. I pin my hopes on Go and Rivero, I think our Taekwondo jins can end our 12 year Olympic medal drought.

It's sad that Quah Ting Wen is putting personal reasons ahead of National glory. Read more about it here.
