PREMIUM Indonesia is not happy with the absence of weightlifting and rowing, as well as other sports in which it sees gold-medal potential, from the upcoming 2017 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Kuala Lumpur.

It is dealing with the situation by pushing backbone sports, including badminton and the martial art pencak silat, to go the extra miles to collect more medals at next year’s event.
