Track-and-field athletes race in the national training camp for the ASEAN Para Games at the March 11 University stadium in Solo, Central Java, Monday (4/9). The training camp is facing a number of obstacles ahead of the ASEAN Para Games 2017 to be held on Sept. 17-23 in Malaysia.

SOLO, KOMPAS – Indonesia’s failure at the SEA Games 2017 in Kuala Lumpur has sparked concern about the country’s performance at the ASEAN Para Games 2017 in the same city, which are set to begin on September 17. That concern stems mainly from problems besetting the ASEAN Para Games national training camp in Solo, Central Java.

“We are worried that the achievement at the ASEAN Para Games will be just as bad as that at the SEA Games, because the requirements for equipment and other needs have not been met,” said Indonesian National Paralympics Committee chairman Senny Marbun.
