Indonesia Wins Gold Medal in E-Sportscabang
Monday 27 August 2022, Indonesia again won a gold medal in the 2022 Asian Games E-Sports at the Britama Arena, Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta,
This time, a young man named Ridel Yesaya Sumarandak became an athlete who made history in this competition. The 16-year-old youth successfully made Indonesia proud after winning the game exhibition tournament Clash Royale for eSports. This is the first time in history that Indonesia won a gold medal at the 2022 Asian Games from the eSports branch.
In the final round, the teenager known by the nickname BenZerRidel succeeded in overthrowing the representative from China, Huang Chenghui or Lciop, with a landslide score of 3-0. Previously he had managed to beat Lciop in the first round with a score of 3-1. Although Indonesia won gold in this branch, the gold will not be able to contribute to the score at the 2022 Asian Games. This is because the E-Sports branch is still in the exhibition stage, which means it is still in the experimental stage so it cannot donate medals to the country. Even so, this news is good news for E-Sports enthusiasts, because with this acquisition the E-Sports branch will get special attention by the government.
