EPL club to PLAY IN BALI May 2

Negotiations are underway for an English Premiership club to come to Bali in July and play against the Indonesian Team at the Dipka Stadium in Gianyar.The club will also play against the Singapore National team in Singapore on their way here. We will keep BSM readers updated.

SUPER SPORTS............ SUPER NO MORE May 2 The hot rumour doing the rounds of Bali & Jakarta’s sports bars is that DSTV the satellite TV providers will pull the pin or rather more precisely pull the cable on Super Sports prior to the Football World Cup starting in June. Apparently the number of sports afescionados tuning in to pirated DSTV broadcast is causing considerable losses,so hence the decision to switch off. To avoid dissapointment check with your local bar. Ironically Big winners in the “who gets to watch what on Saturday afternoon”will be AFL fans who get their games from Australian TV.

BALI does Jakarta 1 May Bali Rugby Club turned in a good performance at the Jakarta 10’s held at Inetrnational Sports Club of Indonesia (ISCI).With title holders Sumbawa not participating,other Indonesian provincial clubs were hoping to cash in However BRC failed to retain the Plate,going down to ISCI B 0-7 in the final. Particularly heartbreaking as BRC had beaten ISCI 5 tries to nil earlier in the day.. Indonesian players Andreas & Markus made their mark with strong running.

Continuing in the tradition of grand annoucements of Real Madrid and Arsenal,AC Milan announced Football/soccer clinics for Bali this coming northern summer. (see inside BSM) Not to say we are cynical,but where have we heard all this before.A big european club signs a franchise deal with a big player in Jakarta,who then announces they will bring it to Bali. After they realise that they have a potential market of possibly 20 kids here in Bali,the whole deal goes quiet until the next big european club comes along.......

SURFING NEWS

TRIATHLON NEWS

Rusty Ready to Rumble at Bali Triathlon Sanur Reef, Bali Rusty is proud to present the 7th annual Rumble In Da Jungle surfing competition to be held at Sanur’s legendary Bangsal Beach over a waiting period spanning from April 26th until May 16th, 2010.

The seething barrels of Sanur Reef will certainly make for a death-or-glory affair for those ready to charge the treacherous inside section which explodes over a table of razor-sharp fire corals. Contest director Kane Faint has high hopes for Rusty Indonesia’s premier event. “Although Sanur has a reputation of being notoriously fickle, we have a three-week window for everything to come together. Last year we scored great waves at both Sanur Reef and our backup location ‘in da jungle’, so fingers crossed this year will be just as insane.” As the second stop on the Coca-Cola Indonesian Surfing Championship (ISC) tour, this six-star rated event has a prize pool of Rp 45,000,000 up for grabs but equally important is the opportunity for the surfers to build on their championship points and get a jump on their peers in the rankings. Fresh off a win at the ISC season opener at Canggu, Rusty team rider Made Awan is confident that he can carry his good form into this competition.

The fourth annual MRA Bali International Triathlon will take place on June 20, 2010 at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay. The weekend features an Olympic distance event and Sprint distance event, the only triathlons ever to be held in Bali. Join us for a unique destination race combining a luxurious race setting with a challenging course. Each participating athlete will be provided with the following:

• • • •

High Quality Race T-shirt

Opportunity to participate in discounted tours and watersports activities throughout Bali

• •

Discounted hotel rates for athletes and their families

Competitor Swim Cap Ticket to pre-race dinner event hosted by Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay Access to post race awards party and follow up lunch on the beach with local musicians

Jenggala's ceramic plate for all top 3 category winners and overall winners

Four Seasons has generously offered a 6 day, 5 night package in a One Bedroom Villa at its Jimbaran Bay resort to the first male and female athlete to finish the race. The top three athletes in each competing division will receive awards.

KITEBOARDING NEWS

5th HOTAIR!

“Sanur is one of my favorite waves; it’s long, fast, and grows as it hits the reef. I feel comfortable out there and my boards are going great, so I can’t wait!”

The 5th Edition of the HOTAIR! Bali's only Kiteboard comp is on from the 2-4 July.

Sabre eyewear will also reward the surfer who rides the ‘Best Barrel’ during the event with a Rp 2,000,000 prize.

HOTAIR! has developed from only local competitors to have an exciting mix of international & national kiteboarders.

The Rusty Rumble In Da Jungle is supported by Sabre, San Mig Light, Surf Time, Magic Wave, Lines, and GUS.

RUGBY UNION NEWS Jakarta 10’s The tradition continues….After last year’s questionable refereeing, this year it was questionable points tallying. Leading to a "sit-in" with the Indonesian teams as there was an issue with the results and points tallying. Bandung had won all their games with one draw and ISCI Japan team had lost one, but ISCI Japan finished higher? No one was quite sure if it was a bonus points deal, but the Bandung players were not happy. So the Jakarta Bantengs swapped jerseys with the Bandung Rams and declared the game a draw. Then all the Indonesian teams sung a great rendition of "Indonesia Raya". Witnesses acknowledge that this could be a turning point for Indonesian rugby union and that we will be seeing the Jakarta Banteng's 10's in the near future.

GOLFING NEWS

BALI JUNIOR GOLF

Bali Junior Golf held their first gathering at Sector - Bali Beach Golf Course in Sanur on Saturday 1st May 2010 over 13 juniors aged from 4 – 16 were present with their parents. Teachers from Bali International School and Dyatmika were also present to lend their support to the idea behind the interschool golf competition. Indonesian Women’s Open 2010 Amateur champion Marcella Pranovia was present with her father Yudha Surya Putra. Marcella treated the children and parents present to some golf tips. Short presentations were also given by Eddy Panca, Secretary for the Indonesian Golf Association ( PGI) Bali Chapter and also committee member of the National Golf Referee Committee. Sports Massage Therapist Ketut Putrawan spoke about the importance of fitness, stretching, warming up and cooling down to avoid possible injuries. Rishi Kumar from Ruci Golf spoke about the gold equipment and the importance of having the right kind of clubs. Balibeach Golf Course kindly sponsored the event and provided light refreshments for all. Melina Caruso, mother of junior golfer Andrew Caruso-Mulyadi, is working with Eddy Panca and others, including Bali based Golf Pro’s who would all like to see Junior Golf in Bali grow says “Junior membership fees on joining a club, together with the purchase of golf clubs, golf bag, etc are among the main reasons why large numbers of juniors do not take up golf as a sport here in Bali. Clearly it does not compare favorably with, say football, where a boy/girl can join a club at no cost, while full equipment consists of no more than a pair of boots, socks, shorts and a jersey. She and many others are keen to see Bali Junior Golf invite golf clubs in Bali to discuss the possibility to consider a Provisional Membership scheme for juniors at a very nominal fee. Caruso says that “the adoption of such a scheme will allow juniors the opportunity to gauge whether or not they wish to take up the sport. Juniors initial activities may be confined to attendance at coaching sessions, the putting green and the practice ground and at this stage, the cost of buying equipment can be limited to simply a putter and an iron. As well as the opportunity to play golf and very special prices. Bali Junior Golf’s Mission is to provide a warm, caring, safe environment for young juniors to practice and train in an ideal setting where they can gain social education an understanding of Golf etiquette and sportsmanship as they grow. We want to be able to offer an opportunity where juniors can have inter school competitions as well as weekend club competitions. In addition, we will be holding Mixed Junior Competitions and Family Fun Days and many other club programs for the juniors to participate in.

Any child that has a flair for golf needs to be given have the opportunity to become another Aaron Bradley, Adam Scott or Karie Webb or even Tiger Wood. Parents have a major role to play and with their support and enthusiasm they can be a catalyst, ensuring a successful junior golf situation.

SWIMMING NEWS Indonesia is an island archipelago yet very few people learn how to swim. Drownings are a common occurrence with the majority of people having no understanding of the inherent dangers surrounding activities near or in a water environment. However, there are many children who go against the norm and learn how to swim, show talent and skill, and develop a love for the sport and a desire to achieve excellence. Unfortunately these children are in the minority rather than the majority. *World Health Organisation estimates that 2% of all preventable deaths of children in Asia are caused by drowning. In Indonesia, with a population of over 220,000,000 people, (28.4% are aged under 15yrs#) this would equate to over 3,000 children each year will drown. A staggering and frightening figure, particularly when the vast majority would be preventable. In Bali, along the south coast between Seseh Beach and Nusa Dua almost 300 people are rescued by the Balawista Surf Lifesaving each year, with approximately 5% becoming a fatality statistic. Many of those rescued are Indonesians on holidays who have little or no understanding of the dangers and no experience with water awareness and/or survival techniques. Children are our most treasured asset and anything we can do to protect them or to make them safer is well worth the effort. Do you agree? Bali Swim4Kids is an initiative that through support and assistance of Bali Sports 4 Peace Foundation and the right promotion will be able to provide swimming and water safety lessons for the average and underprivileged children on Bali, and in the future, Indonesia as a whole. Our Simple Plan:

• • • •

Conduct an Ocean Swimming Competition on July 4. Entries are open to both local competitors and overseas visitors.

• •

Any money raised through sponsorships by businesses or individuals would go to BS4PF for the Bali Swim4Kids program.

• • • •

Equipment for teaching, such as kickboards and noodles will be provided.

The ocean swim and subsequent program would become an annual event. The bigger the race becomes, the more children who will benefit from the program.

The swim is a 1.2K and 5 K under the supervision of the Balawista Surf Lifesaving Group at Kuta Beach. Event is run for males and females in the following age groups: Juniors (12 to 17 years), Adults (18 to 35 years) and Masters (over 35) Money raised from entries to the event is to be used (after expenses are covered) to conduct swimming programs at local pools (thereby generating business for them) and beach locations for children from low income families. These programs would offer children a 10-15 lesson program to develop water confidence, awareness and safety for children and an understanding of the inherent dangers of water activities. Each child would receive a pair of swim goggles and a t-shirt at no cost to them. Entry to the local pool would be covered by the program and the swim teachers utilised would be paid for from the program. As the program grows we can train local unskilled Indonesians to become Internationally recognised swim teachers, thereby giving them a skill that they can use to earn money for their families and communities.

If we manage to prevent even one death by drowning wouldn’t that be worth it all?

Categories for both Male & Female 1.2Km: Juniors—12 to 17yrs Adults—18 yrs and over Masters—Over 35 Years Entry fees: $35.00USD for Adults 18 and over 250,000Rp for residents or KITAS holder $25.00USD for Juniors 12 to 17 years 150,000Rp for residents or KITAS holder 5Km Swim—Open Age (minimum age 15yrs) Entry fees: $45.00USD 350,000Rp for Residents or KITAS holder ALL ENTRIES/ENQUIRIES TO info@balioceanswim.com www.balioceanswim.com

BOXING NEWS Chris Johns Bout Postponed Until July Indonesian WBA Featherweight Champ Fight in Bali Postponed until July Due to Arm Injury. (5/3/2010) Citing a training injury to the Indonesian WBA featherweight champion, Chris Johns has postponed his title in defense in Bali from May 22nd until sometime in July. The Indonesian fight promoter Zaenal Thayeb was unprepared to tell Radar Bali the exact date the fight with Argentinean Fernando David Saucedo will take place in the Centro Mall in Kuta. Thayeb would only say that the fight will be held in July, sometime after the World Cup in South Africa. Meanwhile, Chris Johns has returned to his home in Semarang, Central Java to allow his injured arm time to heal with plans to return to Bali in June to resume his training schedule. John’s left arm was injured in a sparring session at the Mirah Training Camp in Bali on Wednesday, April 28, 2010. Chris John’s trainer insist the injury is minor in nature from which the fighter will make a rapid and complete recovery. In response to those suggesting the Bali fight is encountering problems with securing sufficient sponsorship for the international match-up, Zaenal insists there is no problem with the fight’s backers, with commercial sponsors and government support firmly in place. BaliDiscovery.com Chris Johns is the World Boxing Association super featherweight champion with a (43-0-2) record while his opponent Fernando David Saucedo has a (38-4-3) record. Balidiscovery.com

Milan to hold its inaugural Milan Junior Camp in Bali Agnes Winarti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta. Sat, 05/01/2010 12:12 PM

Seven-time EUFA Champions League winner AC Milan of Italy is beginning to acknowledge soccer talents in the Southeast Asia region, especially in Indonesia, through the establishment of its inaugural Milan Junior Camp, in Bali. "I know football has an increasing popularity in Indonesia. It's necessary to do some investment in the sport here," AC Milan Ambassador Franco Baresi, who between 1977 and 1997 was the team's greatest defender, told media conference on Friday. "The Milan Junior Camp is a very important initiative for AC Milan. Thus, we are very proud to be opening our very first Milan Junior Camp in Bali. It would be a good opportunity for the boys," said Franco, whose club won the UEFA Champions League in 1963, 1969, 1989, 1990, 1994, 2003, and 2007. Last year, more than 15,000 boys and girls took part in the Milan Junior Camps in 29 countries around the world. Through a selection at the two-week Milan Junior Camp in Bali, 11 soccer hopefuls will have an opportunity in September to take part in a five-day coaching clinic, watch the AC Milan team train and compete, and play in a friendly game against their peers at the AC Milan Academy in Milan, Italy. The Asia Sports Development (ASD) initiative, which in 2003 brought Real Madrid to four Asian cities - Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok - will be sponsoring 10 children between 10 and 16 years of age to take part in the Bali camp, which is divided into two groups: June 12-26 and June 26-July 10. The 10 best candidates from the 700 children expected to take part in the All-Star Team Challenge Competition at Senayan in Jakarta on May 1-2 will receive sponsorship worth US$2,500 (each) to take part in the Bali camp among a total of 300 paying participants in the program. "The 10 sponsored talents and rest of the participants will undergo the same selection procedure, which includes technique and physical requirements observed by the coaches of AC Milan Academy," ASD managing director Ricky Djoharli said. Ricky, who expects to hold the Milan Junior Camp annually, said next year he planned to hold the selection competition for sponsored participants in 10 cities nationwide instead of only Jakarta. "There is a possibility the Indonesian talents will have a chance to actually join the AC Milan Academy, if they are skilled enough, as a talent-scout team from the Academy will also attend the friendly game," Ricky said. Franco, who is currently the Italian youth team coach, gave some tips to young players hoping to excel in soccer. "You should have the passion to work hard in training; have the determination to keep improving and the ambition to always make it to the top," said the Italian squad defender who together with his team won the World Cup in 1982.

Jeren Kiring Crowned Rusty Gromfest Series Champion 29 April 2010 Kuta Beach, Bali (Sunday April 25th, 2010): Today Canggu's Jeren Kiring surfed his way to victory over a highly competitive field of talented junior surfers at 'Halfway' Kuta Beach to wrap up the three-part Rusty Gromfest Series Bali 2010. Jeren has been the standout surfer of the series with finals births at both Keramas and Pererenan and following his win today at Kuta has cemented his reputation of being Indonesia's top grom. As the overall under 16 division champion Jeren was awarded a free, expenses paid trip to Australia to compete in the 15th annual Rusty Gromfest held at Lennox Head in July. "I'm really happy to win this event and the series," beamed Jeren after the podium presentation. "I can't wait to surf Lennox Head, Snapper Rocks and all the great waves in Australia... but first, it's time to celebrate!" Other notable performances today came from Koko Mitsua, Nyoman Blacky, and Mansur Ramlin, who was in top form in the early rounds and managed to stick several tweaked 360 reverses. In the under 14 division Jay Esquival from the Philippines was on fire, securing excellent scoring rides in all his heats by taking to the air. In the final Nyoman Alit snatched victory from under Komang Sastrawan's nose, with favorite Jay Esquival coming 3rd, and Andre Anwar in 4th. As the overall under 14 division winner, Komang Sastrawan received a tricked out Sony PSP and a new handphone from Sony Ericsson. This year at each junior event Coca-Cola ISC has rewarded the ’surfer that shows the most potential’ with a new custom surfboard. Today ‘Bomer’ from Sumbawa claimed the new board and he was visibly pumped. All finalists received awesome prizes in the form of Rusty clothing packs, Sony Ericsson handphones, Creatures grips and leashes, free surfboard art and repairs from Freedom surfshop, plus other products from event sponsors Sabre, Macbeth, Stomp, Zinka, and Walls. The Rusty Gromfest Series Bali 2010, held in conjunction with the Coca-Cola ISC Junior Tour, has once again been a great success that was made possible with the generous support of the local communities at Keramas, Pererenan, and Kuta.
