WUPID 2012: Bipeds in Top 16, First From Indonesia to Break

Binus International Pool of English Debaters (Bipeds) became the first ever Indonesian institution that can break into the knockouts of the World Universities Peace Invitational Debate in Kuala Lumpur. Bipeds 1 (Invi Atmanegara & Jaran Walia) last night advanced into the WUPID 2012 quarterfinals after collecting 8 points from 5 debates and taking 15th position on the tab. They will meet strong teams from National University of Singapore, Australia's Monash University and the renowned University of Cambridge tomorrow. Their schoolmates Bipeds 2 (Wilson Salim & Melisa Irene) came short from following suit. Aulia Anggita and Egalita Irfan from Universitas Indonesia, who are the first Indonesians to progress into the main elimination stage of an overseas tournament this year, also competed in WUPID 2012 but missed the cut.  Last May, Invi and Jaran gave Binus International its first major international trophy after winning the EFL category of the 2012 United Asian Debating Championships.
