From the article;
No one in Jakarta forgets how Canberra turned on Indonesia in 1999 and, as they see it, set out to humiliate them over East Timor.

The second biggest cheer from the stadium at the 2000 Sydney Olympics was for the independent atheletes from the province of East Timor. While the biggest cheer was reserved for the Aussies (of course ) I still remember vividly that the four guys from Timor Leste got a massive round of applause, and didn't the Indons look snakey .
