Jettribe is proud to announce we are the Official Gear Sponsor of the Course Marshall staff at this year’s 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta/Palembang.
The Games are recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and is known as the second largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games. Jettribe is also honored to be the Official Gear of the Olympic Riding Teams of China, South Korea and Cambodia.
The first Asian Games were held in Delhi, India in 1951, and included only 6 sports: athletics, aquatics, basketball cycling, football, and weightlifting. This year, there are 462 events in 40 disciplines as the second-largest event in Asian Games history! This is the first time the Jet Ski category has been included in the Asian Games. In the past, the Jet Ski event was only included in the Asian Beach Games.
The Jet Ski competition will have the following classes: Runabout 1100 Stock, Ski Modified, Runabout Limited, and Endurance Runabout Open. Racing starts Thursday, August 23rd and continues through Sunday the 26th.
Jettribe Factory Riders Aero Aswar and Aqsa Aswar will be competing with the Indonesia Olympic Racing Team, and Factory Rider Wu Ronghua will be competing with the China Olympic Racing Team. Jettribe staff is traveling to the event now, and will be posting photos and video updates throughout the weekend.
