SOLO, KOMPAS.com - The Indonesian para archery contingent topped its gold medal target thanks to the brilliant performance of athletes in the final round of the afternoon session at the ASEAN Para Games (APG) 2022 on Wednesday, Aug. 3.

As of Wednesday, Indonesian archers have collected three golds, two silvers, and two bronzes at the 11th APG in the Indonesian city of Solo, State News Antara said.

Head coach of the national para archery team, Tri Sugeng Purwanto, said the Indonesian athletes played with confidence.

“They trained for a long time, but there was no game, so it seemed like an ‘outburst’ today. Tomorrow, there is still one more [match]; hopefully, [win gold]. It’s probably fifty-fifty, but this is already an incredible achievement,” Purwanto remarked.

In Wednesday’s final round at the Kota Barat Field in Solo, Central Java, Mahda Aulia and Wahyu Retno Wulandari clinched the gold medal after defeating Thai pair Phattharaphon Pattawaeo and Tpat Chatyotsakorn in the recurve women’s open doubles, with a score of 34–32, 32–25, and 27–19.
