Being proud! 15 Papuan Athletes Also Strengthen the Indonesian Team at the Vietnam SEA Games – A total of 499 athletes from Indonesia were sent and participated in Southeast Asian sports events. As a part of the Indonesian contingent, the 499 athletes will compete in various sports at the 2021 Vietnam SEA Games.

The encouraging news was that among the 499 athletes there were several persons from provinces in the easternmost region of Indonesia.

Based on a release from the Papuan Indonesian National Sports Committee (KONI), there are 15 of the best Papuan athletes who will also strengthen the Indonesian Team at the 2021 Vietnam SEA Games.

KONI Papua, through the General Secretary (Sekum) Kenius Kogoya, said that the athletes who were included in the biennial sports championship were inseparable from the achievements they had made so far, including the 2021 PON.

“There are quite a number of athletes from Papua who participated in the SEA Games this year,” said Kogoya in a post on his Instagram account @jurucepatpapua on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

According to Kogoya, the 15 athletes from Papua who were part of the Indonesian contingent consisted of various sports.

These sports include swimming, rowing, shooting, archery, karate, and gymnastics. Kenius Kogoya also added that athletes from Papua competing in the 2021 Vietnam SEA Games were among the debutants.

Debutant athletes, for example Claudio Nenobesi, are from Karate Sports. The name Claudio Nenobesi emerged or was popular after winning gold at the 2021 Papua PON. The 20-year-old athlete succeeded to score a surprise achievement by defeating a senior athlete.

This is proof that Papua Province still has excellent and potential athletes.

“We continue to provide support and motivation to athletes participating in the SEA Games. We hope they can give their best,” said Kogoya.

“This proves that Papua Province still has the potential for talented and accomplished athletes. We hope that they will prove that those chosen are the best,” said Kenius Kogoya.

The Indonesian athlete has now joined Hanoi, Vietnam, and the 2021 SEA Games event itself has officially opened.

The opening of the 2021 SEA Games, which marks the holding of an international event in the Southeast Asian region, was carried out by the President of Vietnam, Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

The opening ceremony for the 2021 SEA Games will take place at My Dinh National Stadium Hanoi Vietnam on Thursday night, May 12, 2022.
