“Visited by the mayor, Rindi looked more enthusiastic and hopefully he can bring Indonesia to be the champion. Because we see, this child (Rindi) has a truly high dedication in rock climbing. The mayor also gave direction to all athletes who were there at the time, saying that fighting physically is very important but don’t forget to struggle with praying,” Maskur explained, when met after the Drum Band Competition on Saturday morning (8/25).

“Rindi was also asked to maintain his stamina and concentrate on facing this match because the competitors were all over Asia even though Rindi actually is used to compete and deal with other countries (outside Asia). Hopefully he can be successful at this Asian Games. We give high motivation to maintain physical and full concentration,” added Maskur again.

If Rindi gets the best result, the mayor promises to provide a rock-climbing training center in the city. Disdikpora is ready to communicate it with the East Java Provincial Youth and Sports Department and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
