Jakarta, March 8th, 2023
Management of PERPANI (Indonesia Archery Association) is holding a 2nd National Archery Selection on March 8th to 10th, 2023 at Archery Training Center of GBK Senayan of Jakarta. The selection aims to catch any best athletes to be trained for the preparation of Pre-Olympic Games of 2024 in Paris and Asian Games of 2023 in Hangzhou. There are 48 athletes from various provinces to take part in the selection.
In the middle of the national selection, IADO was on March 8th, 2023 invited to sign the MoU with PERPANI on anti-doping activities. That MoU was signed by dr. Eka Wulan Sari from IADO and Vice Secretary General of PERPANI Mr. Kuswahyudi, accompanied by Vice Chairman of II of PERPANI Mr. Abdul Razak. By joining to sign that agreement, PERPANI has followed other sport institutions engaged the agreement such as the KONI, NOC, NPC, PSSI, PASI, PERBASI, FPTI, WI, PABSI, PRUI, PERBASASI and PRSI. IADO represented by Secretary General of IADO, dr. Eka Wulan Sari, accompanied by Director of Testing Mrs. Linda Rosalina, highly appreciated PERPANI which used to fully meet the regulation of anti-doping stipulated by WADA, because development dynamics on archery tends to be very challenging. Now WADA has released regulation that for those who could be suspected to violate anti-doping regulation are not only caused of having consumed any prohibited substances, but also for those who could be regarded for instance to have done any evasion, refusal, and or failure to submit to sample collection. Such regulation is not only important for athletes, but also for athlete support personnel.
In addition, archery is one of the priority sports based on DBON (the National Sports Grand Design) in Indonesia, requesting IADO to highlight more its anti-doping compliance. At present there are various temptations for elite athletes including those competing in archery events to be the champion. Consequently, PERPANI and other National Federations should pay attention to various new anti-doping regulations. Once an athlete feels unaware to consume un identified item because of having from somebody else, buying any supplement on online transaction without consulting to his / her doctor, or being seduced by his / her team or somebody else intending to barrier his / her achievement, any catastrophe possibly will come.
