Imam Nahrawi pointed out that Indonesia's success in Asian Games some times ago became a nation's milestone in proving achievements in the field of sports.

"Our tennis court for 16 years has never won a medal. But at the time of Asian Games some times ago, Indonesia won a gold medal for tennis in the Mixed Doubles. Sport is an easy way for Indonesia to go to the 2020 Olympics and the easy way for Indonesia to become the host. This is certainly because Indonesia has been well tested at the Asian Games. Asian Games participants from various countries not only feel safe but also comfortable and are welcomed by great volunteers and friendly smiles. I also hope that Pencak Silat will be on the 2020 Olympics, "Imam Nahrawi said.
