JOVED 2013: UI Debaters Keep Trophy, Raid Speaker Awards

JOVED 2013 Champions - Universitas Indonesia B
Powerhouse Universitas Indonesia finally displayed the usual dominance that was lacking through out this year in the 2013 Java Overland Varsities English Debate. #1 UI B (Aulia Anggita, Elvia Sumayastra, Magreta Kailla Adenta) defended the title with the same unbeaten record that their schoolmates showed last year.

They also took home the top two speaker spots after Magreta Kailla Adenta topped the tab while her partner Aulia Anggita came second. As it turned out, half of the top 10 speakers were UI students.

In the final, UI B outclassed #6 Universitas Gadjah Mada A (Alif Satria, Cinantyan Punjung, Thoriq Murtadho) for the third time in the competition. They defeated their rivals twice in the preliminaries. JOVED, the first tournament in Indonesia that used a internationally accepted debate format, is one of three classic competitions in the country. UI came short in the two other classics, IVED and ALSA UI, this year.
