15 Papuan Athletes Strengthen Indonesia at Sea Games

JAYAPURA - The 15 best Papuan athletes in various sports who succeeded in PON XX, participated in strengthening the Red and White squad at the SEA Games in Hanoi, Vietnam 2022.

This was confirmed by General Secretary of Papua KONI, Kenius Kogoya in Jayapura, Tuesday (10/5/2022).

The participation of 15 athletes is the most since the SEA Games event was held.

This cannot be separated from the achievements of Papuan children in PON 2021, who were able to finish fourth in the final standings with 93 gold, 66 silver, and 102 bronze.

"Approximately 15 Papuan athletes were recruited to the Vietnam SEA Games. The participation of Papuan athletes today in the SEA Games is also more than before, although many of them are in the sport of games or teams".

 "Of course we hope that all athletes can excel and not only be good at home. But at the SEA Games they can prove to be the best," said Kenius.

Meanwhile, Kenius also ensured that the implementation of the KONI Papua Provincial Conference will be held on May 19 to 20, 2022.

The implementation of the Provincial Deliberations regarding the end of the current management period of KONI Papua based on the Central KONI Decree, which was extended until June 2022, related to the implementation of PON XX 2021.

"And for the implementation of Provincial Deliberations, an implementation committee has also been formed whose preparation is 90 percent. It means just waiting for implementation."

"Hopefully everything goes well because the committee's own preparations I see are already," he said.

Still related to the implementation of Provincial Deliberations, Kenius appealed to KONI in districts / cities whose management period had ended, as soon as possible to revamp the organization. ***
