Indonesian Basketball News: A potential young player belonging to Bali United Basketball, Gede Elgi Wimbardi has a golden opportunity to join the training camp of the Indonesian Basketball National Team. Anthony Garbelotto was proud to hear that.
Gede Elgi Wimbardi will also train and compete with other young basketball players as well as former compatriots in the Indonesia Patriots, such as Aldy Izzatur Rachman, Julian Chalias, and Ali Bagir.
In addition, the naturalized duo of Dame Diagne and Serigne Modou Kane also appeared to compete for a place in the SEA Games squad. Knowing this, the coach of Bali United Basketball, Coach Anthony Garbelotto was enthusiastic and proud of his team.
“We must be very proud of the opportunity that Elgi gets. I hope this is not the last time he gets this opportunity. I also hope that this will also be an opening for other Bali United players to play in the Indonesian basketball team,” said Coach Tony.
Furthermore, Coach Tony also feels that Elgi deserves a call to this national team training center. Because, he saw that his players had great potential that could be utilized for the Garuda squad.
Elgi himself has above average abilities when compared to players his age. Starting from instinct, speed and agility in doing stabs, to mature decision-making abilities.
“Elgi has extraordinary instincts in this game. He has the ability to penetrate and make the right decisions. Actually I am also enthusiastic that Bali United is the beginning of his evolution and development as a basketball player. I hope we can take him to the next level,” added Coach Tony.
Not only that, this British coach also gave important messages and advice for Elgi in undergoing his training camp.
“He should be able to enjoy this experience and learn to train and play with many more experienced players,” said Coach Tony.
The basketball national team itself has a high target in this year’s SEA Games, which is to maintain gold. The reason is, at the 2021 edition of the SEA Games in Vietnam, the Red and White team successfully won a gold medal after defeating the ASEAN basketball giant, the Philippines with a final score of 85-81.
