Asian Games – Wrestling team undergoes final training session

Samarinda, E Kalimantan, (ANTARA News) – Indonesias national wrestling team is currently undergoing a final training session at Icuk Sugiarto Training Camp in Cisaat, Sukabumi, West Java, before competing in the Asian Games 2018 from August 19-22 in Jakarta.

National coach Buyamin said on Sunday the mens team joined the training on July 27 while the womens team had started some days before.

“After taking four days off after returning from Bulgaria, we immediately gathered in Sukabumi to join with the womens team who have undergone training earlier after taking part in a training camp in Batu, East Java,” he said.

He said the final training session in Sukabumi was actually mere maintenance of their physical condition and stamina before they are involved in real matches at the 18th Asian Games.

“In essence we just maintain their physical condition after undergoing hard training in Bulgaria so that their stamina would not drop ahead of the real matches,” Buyamin said.

He said in Bulgaria almost everyday they conducted training with local sparring partners.
