The coach of the West Java Team, Aceng Supendi, said that the results this time were in line with the target of sweeping all categories in the sprint numbers.

“There are still things that don’t go according to what was planned, but they have worked hard to show the quality of both men and women. What isn’t right, like understanding the path which in my opinion is difficult. So it takes time to analyze and sometimes this determined by the water level, so that makes it difficult,” he said.

The National Rafting National Championship 2022 is being held as a preparation for the Aceh-North Sumatra PON when the first rafting sport will be competed in this four-year multi-event.
