West Sumatra Will Join 25 Sports in PON Papua 2021




Chairman of the Indonesian National Sports Committee (KONI) West Sumatra Syaiful said West Sumatra would participate in 25 sports at the XXth Indonesian National Sports Committee (PON) in Papua. PON XX Papua was originally scheduled this year. But then it was postponed because of the corona virus pandemic situation.

Of the 25 sports that West Sumatra will participate in in the PON 2021 event, there are 144 athletes. Athletics, weight lifting, weightlifting, bodybuilding, motor racing, basketball, billiards, chess, cricet, rowing, wrestling, hang gliding, karate, kempo, sailing, muaythai, shooting, rock climbing, archery, pencak Silat, Swimming, Sepaktakraw, Gymnastics, Diving, Taekwondo, Tarung Derajat, and Boxing.

Syaiful hopes the athletes can maximize their time for training so that West Sumatra will get good results in the Cendrawasih Earth next year.

Syaiful added that KONI had also given the athletes a bonus if they succeeded in bringing home a medal from Papua. The goal is none other than a form of motivation to improve athletes' performance in West Sumatra.

Deputy Governor of West Sumatra Nasrul Abit, who gave direction to PON athletes at the Agus Salim Sports Hall on Saturday (8/8) hoped that the athletes would remain disciplined with the covid protocol during their preparatory training for Papua. Because the pandemic situation in West Sumatra still endangers the safety of residents, including athletes. Nasrul Abit does not want athletes' preparations to be disrupted by the transmission of the corona virus.
