Thousands of athletes in ponchos marched in heavy rain at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium at the close of the two-week tournament featuring 40 sports.
在为期两周的比赛结束时，数千名身穿雨披的运动员冒着大雨在Gelora Bung Karno体育场内举行闭幕式。
You did it! You made the energy of Asia come through, Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, president of the Olympic Council of Asia, told the packed crowd.
Jakarta has the capability to host any such major international event, added the sheikh, who performed the heart-shaped "Mobot" by placing both hands on top of his head.
It added to the relaxed atmosphere of the ceremony, which was mainly devoted to music acts from Indonesia, India and South Korea while booming fireworks lit up the night sky.
Indonesia has defied expectations to host a smooth Games, which with 17,000 athletes and officials is second in size only to the Olympics.
Riding high on the Games’ success, President Joko Widodo on Saturday announced a bid to hold the 2032 Olympics, which would have seemed unthinkable just a few weeks ago.
Olympics chief Thomas Bach has welcomed Indonesia’s bid but he warned that the sprawling Southeast Asian country needed to maintain the positive energy generated by the Games.
I think what is important now for Indonesia is to keep the momentum of this Games, he said earlier on Sunday.
