C. Java archers join SEAG training

SEMARANG (JP): Two Central Java archers, Permadi Sandra W and Tri Mudo Joko, have been called to join the selection process for the 2001 Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian (SEA) Games. The selection will take place in Jakarta next January.

"I hope both archers make the national team. The competition, however, will be tough among the archers being selected," chairman of Central Java chapter of the Indonesian Archery Association (Perpani)," Didiek Soekardi said on Thursday.

"Tough competition will come from archers of Jakarta, East Java, and West Java."

Didiek admitted that archers from Central Java had less experience in International Archery Federation (FITA) events and were more experienced in traditional events.

"But both Permadi and Tri have been groomed in the national training center before, so they have sufficient skills." (har)
