KUALA LUMPUR, FRIDAY – Despite training without the support of equipment and test games, Indonesia’s disabled athletes competing at the ASEAN Para Games Kuala Lumpur 2017 proved physical and material limitations were not a hindrance. The hard work of the special needs athletes bore sweet fruit as Indonesia finished as the overall champion.

“Indonesia is the champion. We have managed to achieve our main mission at the ASEAN Para Games 2017 by regaining the crown as overall champion. This victory for me is like redeeming and healing our failure at the SEA Games,” said Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi in a press release, Friday (22/9).
