As many as 100 fighters from IPSI DKI Jakarta appeared as the opening act in the series of closing ceremony of the 2018 Asian Games, at the Bung Karno Main Stadium, Senayan, Jakarta, Sunday (09/02/2018) evening WIB.
Pencak silat athletes from Jakarta wear white uniforms using Betawi peci. They performed with various moves, accompanied by traditional Betawi music. Pencak silat is a sport that became a gold medal bar for the Indonesian contingent. At the 18th Asian Games, pencak silat contributed 14 gold medals and one bronze from 16 match numbers.
The excitement of this event peaked when DKI Jakarta martial arts athletes performed for 15 minutes. The program, which was hosted by Ronald Surapradja and Tike Priyatna Kusuma, was continued to music performances through videos of the official 2018 Asian Games songs, while waiting for the highlight of the event at 7:00 p.m.
Although the excitement of the 2018 Asian Games has ended, it does not mean the excitement and enthusiasm of the athletes will just fade away, right? The spirit continues to make Indonesia proud!
