Jakarta (ANTARA)-Minister of Youth Sports Zainudin Amali considered the Papua XX National Sports Week a success in terms of implementation and new records and achievements.
As of Thursday, 56 new records were set for some sports during National Sports Week. As a result, the country’s largest sporting event has been successfully achieved.
“While questions have been raised about the implementation of Papua XX National Sports Week, we were finally able to answer by hosting a safe and smooth National Sports Week,” Amari said in an online discussion in Jakarta. ..
According to the minister, the large sporting event was able to set 56 new records, both national sports week records and world records.
He emphasized that the record itself was an achievement, given that the current national sporting event was held in a pandemic.
According to Amari, the fact that the event was held until then dispelled existing doubts among those who were convinced that it would be postponed or even canceled.
“Why is this possible? Because of President Joko Widodo’s clear direction and courage. He said National Sports Week still had to be held, and this is what we do in a pandemic. It’s (time) to learn to do the activity, “he asserted.
