Senny Marbun in a press conference in Jakarta on Friday (12/10) affirmed that Indonesia is targeting two gold medals at Tokyo Paralympic 2020. Senny is very optimistic, considering the Minister of Youth and Sports, Imam Nahrawi will soon build a Disability Special Sports School in Solo, Central Java. In addition, there is freedom to conduct training and financial support is available from Indonesian government. This makes NPC optimistic to be able to attain achievement for next two years.
“For 2020 because the Minister gives all this existing equipment to be brought to Solo. Of course, we will be even more excellent later. With simple equipment, we are great. Now, the Minister says that the post-equipment is brought to Solo for training. Everything is okay! We are given pocket money; we are given the freedom to practice. We are given the freedom to search for coaches, arrange for ourselves by the Minister of Youth and Sports. We must use it carefully. Later in 2020, I dare to target two gold medals we will gain,” said Senny Marbun.
On the same occasion, Senny Marbun also thanked the government of Indonesia for giving more attention to the NPC. In addition, he also thanked the media people who have popularized various sports of disabled athletes for the public.
