He dared to speak in front bunch of audiences, debated against angmohs and defeated those angmohs to be ranked 1st or 2nd best speaker in the world, so far not many asians had gone that far

That depends on the context. Debaters are limited by time (7-8 minutes) and you only get 1 chance to deliver your speech. That's why most often it is jam packed with information and the speed of speech is quite fast.
It is like writing an essay vs summary. Writing a summary can be much harder if you have to keep within the constrains of the maximum word limit while trying to make sure you don't miss out on the important stuff.

If it's fine if you don't like that style of speaking, I just don't see what that has got to do between speech and elocution.

Worse is when you meet the indian debaters (doesnt matter those from India, singapore or Malaysia). Some of them speak with really thick accent, they talk super duper fast and they have really aggressive manner.

So adjudicators and debaters in general are used to faster-than-usual speed rate due to time constraint. Actually, it doesnt matter how fast or how slow one speaks, its where we pause that matters.

I beg to disagree. Most Indians from Malaysia and Singapore that I've seen in debating, has decent to good English. With accents that we're quite accustomed to.

The ones from India are usually the ones with thick accents. Thing is, a lot of indian debaters from Singapore teams (e.g. NUS, NTU etc) are actually from India and not local, thus they have the thick accent. tongue.gif

My bad. I didnt make it clear but ya, I agree that we are quite accustomed to those Indians from Malaysia and Singapore. And I am well aware that many of those representing NUS, NTU etc are not locals, but "imported" from India. I have been to few tournaments where it was kinda ironic to watch those Indians winning the tournaments while representing NUS etc whereby their countrymen watched in silence, with no cheers.
