Indonesia is the World Champion
No, it’s not in the already passed World Cup nor the Miss Universe Pageant which has yet to come. It’s about something physical and all of Indonesian winners were male. Oh, don’t get excited, ladies… I don’t think they have have six pack muscles. Well, perhaps they do, but I haven’t checked. Would be really great if they do
The truth is… in contrast to the fate of Math Olympiad team, Yohanes Surya, the chief of Indonesian team participating in the International Physics Olympiads in Singapore reported that Indonesia has successfully got four gold medals and one silver. In addition to that, Jonathan Pradana Mailoa, one of five Indonesian contestants, was awarded as the Absolute Winner for making the highest score in this competition, and led Indonesia to be the World Champion.
Should be noted that this effort was not initiated by the government, the Ministry of National Education. The whole arrangement was handled by TOFI. Oh, then sure now we know why the physics team was successful! Ooops!!
Well, what should I say about this success vis-a-vis the visa-scandal? Clearly only one actor missing from the success. No, not dukun!! Yeah, you-know-who.
Congratulations Indonesian Physics Team!! Thanks to Yohanes Surya, Jonathan, Pangus, Irwan, Andy and Firmansyah! You are all Mr. Universe! Let’s get physics-al!!
