Indonesian Olympic Athletes Association (IOA) head Richard Sambera (with mic) accompanied by several athletes speaks at a press conference on Tuesday (10/10)in response to talks of disbanding the Indonesia Gold Program (Satlak Prima) in Jakarta. The IOA stressed the need for solutions on speedier decision-making and cutting the red tape on disbursing funds for training and try-outs, and not the disbandment of Prima.

The government is going to disband the Satlak Prima, the country’s “go for gold” program, because it is seen to add to the red tape in sports and hamper the fund disbursement to athletes.

The issue on disbanding Satlak Prima began when the performance of Indonesian athletes fell during the recent Kuala Lumpur SEA Games. They could not achieve their target to collect 55 gold medals and to be in the top four ASEAN countries.
