JOVED 2014: Brawijaya Tops Break List, Creates History

Record-setting Universitas Brawijaya (Zelly Sidi Zamzami, M. Fahri Akbar, Nadiya Ayuning) broke first into the knockouts of the 2014 Java Overland Varsities English Debate after winning all six preliminary rounds. None from the Malang school had achieved that feat before. But their main aim is marking another milestone - winning JOVED, the first tournament in Indonesia using an internationally accepted format. None from East Java province, where Brawijaya is located, has won JOVED or any other classic national tournament since competitive debating spread in Indonesia.

In R6, the underdogs defeated favorites Binus International A (Melisa Irene, Wilson Salim, Gierdino Julian). Prior to that, the dark horse had beaten teams from powerhouses Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Gadjah Mada and Institut Teknologi Bandung.
