goodmorningpapua.com – The implementation of the VI National Community Recreational Sports Festival (FORNAS) in Palembang, South Sumatra, entered its fifth day.
As of Tuesday, July 5, 2022, at 20:00 local time, the Papuan contingent is in the ninth place in medals from 34 provinces throughout Indonesia.
The Papuan contingent received a total of 13 medals, consisting of 6 gold, 3 silver and 4 bronze.
A Secretary of the Indonesian Community Recreational Sports Committee (Kormi) Papua, Simson Rumbiak, appreciated the hard work of all activists who from the first day he judged to have shown the best performance.
Even though he is not yet safe in the top 10, he is optimistic that the Papuan contingent can still gain medals from some of the main sports that are currently competing.
“There are still several main sports that Papuan Kormi activists participated and have the opportunity to win medals.”
“Indeed, the position of the Papuan contingent had slipped to 12th place in the provision of medals. But today, Tuesday (red) there is another medal from the street soccer team for the men and women, namely 1 gold and 1 bronze medal. In the end, Papua rose to 9th place,” explained Simson, while monitoring the competition at PTC Mall, Palembang, Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Papuan contingent is believed to still have a chance to stay in the top 10 positions. One of them is the main sport of Kempo.
Samson hopes for the prayer support of all Papuans, so that the target of finishing in the top 10 at FORNAS Palembang, can be achieved.
