Jakarta, Sep 7 (IANS) Indonesia will conduct an analysis of the country’s performance at the recently concluded Asian Games in Jakarta.

Indonesia finished in the fourth place at the Games with a total of 98 medals ( 31 golds, 24 silvers and 16 bronze), reports Xinhua news agency.

That exceeds the country’s initial target of 16 to 20 medals and a top 10 finish.

Youth and sport ministry secretary Gatot S. Dewa Broto said an entire program will be put in place in an effort to reward good performances.

“There are sports where athletes were complacent and failed to reach their targets. For now we are composing the rules on that,” said Gatot.
