#29/E Indonesia has 2 wins and 7 judge points at the half-way mark of the preliminaries of the 2012 World Schools Debating Championships. That result puts the team in the second top quarter of the table, where chances to break are still open.
In R3 today, all three judges thought our team convincingly demolished the case of #38/G Mongolia which proposed "This House Would Allow Single Parents in Prison to Raise Children Behind Bars". In R4, Team Indonesia lost but became the first to steal a judge from #8/B South Korea, which previously beat #32/F Argentina, #15/C Scotland and #21/D Sri Lanka 3-0. After 4 rounds, only Singapore and #1/A England have maximum points of 4 wins, 12 judges.
Yesterday, Team Indonesia unanimously defeated #48/H Zimbabwe in R2 after losing to reigning champions #6/A Singapore in the opener. The preliminaries resume on Sunday at the University of Cape Town after a break tomorrow. This year Indonesia is represented by twins Revaldi and Revian Wirabuana from SMA 4 Denpasar, Alif Satria from SMA 8 Yogyakarta and Cheryl Cosslett from SMA 1 Bogor.
