General Lieutenant Marciano Norman serves as the Chairman of the Indonesian National Sports Committee (KONI).
He attended the Indonesian Kurash Federation meeting held at KONI, June 8.
At the meeting, issues of further promotion of kurash in Indonesia and support at the government level were discussed.
The President of the Indonesian Kurash Federation, Hafil Fudin, members of the federation’s management, referees and heads of the federation’s regional departments attended at the meeting.
Marciano Norman stated that the main thing that the Indonesian Kurash Federation should focus on is the socialization of kurash in Indonesia.
“The socialization of kurash should become the main task of all of us. The government supports the work at all levels in this regard.
Even Indonesian schoolchildren should understand what kurash is. I have no doubt that new generations of great athletes are growing in the regions as well. Kurash is expanding over the world. Kurash has already participated in the Asian Games and is on its way to the Olympics” – said the Chairman of KONI.

Issues were discussed and future plans and strategies were agreed upon.
