Indonesia will be represented by 6 men at the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea with two of their top swimmers suspended, the Jakarta Post reports.
According to the Post, the two-year ban on national breaststroking record-holder Indra Gunawan for testing positive for methylhexaneamine has been reduced to 18 months, but will still keep him out out of next week’s Asian Games. Indra tested positive at last year’s Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, also held in Incheon. Along with him, Gunter Pratama Putra also recieved a ban at the event.
With those two ineligible for this year’s Asian Games, the Indonesian team is down to six:
Triadi Fauzi Sidiq
Glenn Victor Sutanto
Dennis Josua Tiwa
Alexis Wijaya Ohmar
Notable is Triadi Fauzi Sidiq, who currently holds 6 individual national records in the long course pool. He’s swept the sprint freestyles (50-200) and also holds the 100/200 fly and 200 IM marks.
Siman Sudartawa is the nation’s best backstroker, holding national records in all three backstroking distances. Meanwhile Glenn Victor Sutanto is the national 50 fly record-holder, stealing one butterfly event away from Fauzi.
