JAKARTA, KOMPAS — Indonesia will send one more athlete to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, having secured a ticket for wave surfing. So far, 23 Indonesian athletes have been confirmed to compete at the Tokyo Olympics, to be held on July 23 to Aug. 8.
Surfing will be competed for the first time in the Olympic Games because Japan wants to include more modern sports. New sports, including surfing, will encourage young athletes to dream of appearing in the Olympics (Kompas, 5/8/2016).
