OLYMPICS : TOKYO 2020 BRACES VS. CORONAVIRUS WITH ONLY 150 DAYS LEFT IN COUNTDOWN !


The Tokyo 2020 Olympics faces a tense moment in history that may put the thousand-year-old sport tradition to test amid fears of the Corona Virus spreading to more countries around the world, some quarters calling for the quadrennial event to be cancelled entirely. In the last 124 years, the modern Olympics had only been cancelled 3 times, first in 1916 during World War I; and in 1940 and 1944 during World War II. The ancient Olympic tradition dates back to 8th Century BC.

Terima kasih ya Allah... Alhamdulillah pada seri terakhir IFSC WorldCup Xiamen saya bisa memecahkan rekor dunia baru 6,995 detik dari rekor sebelumnya 7,101 detik dipegang Yi Ling Song, lawan saya di final. . Ternyata kekuatan pikiran sangatlah luar biasa. Akhir agustus lalu saya mengalami cidera tangan kanan di bagian jari dan itu mempengaruhi performa saya sehingga tidak dapat mencapai limit waktu seperti pada saat latihan. Dan, ini sedikit mengganggu konsentrasi saya menjelang kompetisi, "Apakah mungkin saya bisa tampil maksimal?" . Namun, di tengah keraguan, selalu ada pelatih, keluarga dan tim yang selalu mensuport saya. Bahwa tidak ada yang tidak mungkin selagi kita mau berusaha. "Lupakan rasa sakit! Ubah menjadi kekuatan!" . Thanks a lot @thecircuitclimbing. Foto yang sangat keren.. . . @fpti_official @eigeradventure #ifsc #ifscwc #sportclimbing #speedclimbing #speed #competition #worldrecord #goldmedal #china #fpti #panjattebing #panjattebingindonesia #eiger #eigeradvanture #eigertropicaladvanture
