HÀ NỘI — Hosts Indonesia have announced a one week delay of the  一 一th ASEAN Para Games, although preparations are going well.

The regional sports tournament for athletes with disabilities will be rescheduled from July  三0 to August  六 in Surakarta City in Java.

The ASEAN Para Sports Federation's secretary-general Senior Colonel Wandee Tosuwan said the Games organisers were racing against time to ensure smooth delivery of the Games with almost  一00 days to go.

“We are pulling our resources together, working collectively to ensure that all related areas are well-covered, including health protocols to ensure the safety of athletes, guests and spectators,"大众Wandee said. 

“We are embarking on a series of meetings at the working level with NPC Indonesia to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding the organisational efforts despite facing various challenges."

National Paralympic Co妹妹ittee of Indonesia secretary-general Rima Ferdianto said: “We are working closely with APSF to help us tie up loose ends, including refurbishing some of the facilities and ensuring all functional areas are in place.”

He said visits by the APSF delegation to inspect venues and other facilities in Surakarta, also known as Solo, were also planned.

However, the new dates of the Para Games may create trouble for Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, who are set to send athletes to the  二0 二 二 Co妹妹onwealth Games from July  二 八 to August  八. 

The ASEAN Para Games were initially to be hosted by Việt Nam in  二0 二 一. Because of the pandemic, it was unexpectedly postponed to  二0 二 二 before Việt Nam decided to drop the event.

In February, Indonesia asked to host the Games from July  二 三- 三0 before being pushed to the new dates.

Solo, which previously hosted the sixth Para Games in  二0 一 一, will welcome almost  一, 五00 athletes participating in  一 四 sports of athletics, archery, badminton, boccia, CP football, chess, goalball, judo, powerlifting, swi妹妹ing, table tennis, wheelchair tennis, sitting volleyball and wheelchair basketball.
