He explained that Jakarta women's sepak takraw team succeeded in overthrowing East Java team in double event team, at GOR Trikora, Cenderawasih University, Jayapura, Wednesday (9/29).

He appreciated Jakarta Indonesian National Sports Committee (KONI) who had facilitated optimally starting from departure and accompanied the contingent in Papua.

"We are also happy to be welcomed by Jakarta KONI Deputy Chairperson 4 and their ranks when arrived in Jakarta. This is a form of attention that makes athletes, coaches and me as a manager feel happy. Because we feel that our struggles are appreciated and get attention," he closed.
