      JAKARTA, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Indonesian athletes feel satisfied with everything arranged at the Beijing Olympics, particularly the accommodation, competition halls, venues and food for athletes.

      "Everything is excellent, extraordinary. I heard from them directly," President of the National Olympic Committee of Indonesia Rita Subowo told Xinhua on telephone on Monday.

      Seeing an excellent organisation and high level of competition, Subowo planned to put it in the report which will be submitted to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

      "As I am one of the members (of IOC), responsible for badminton and volley ball, I need to give utterance to my satisfaction, big thanks to the IOC, BOCOG (the Beijing Games Organizing Committee)," she said.

      During Xinhua's interview, Subowo was attending a reception of Thank You Breakfast organized by IOC, BOCOG and Chinese National Olympic Committees (NOCs).

      "I am in reception of Thank You Breakfast now in Beijing. I am just about to say thank you directly to all the people and volunteers of BOCOG," she said.

      Having returned to Jakarta, Subowo has plans to evaluate the results of the Indonesian team who earned five medals at the games, including one gold from badminton men's doubles Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan and one silver from mixed doubles players Nova Widianto and Lilyana Natsir.
