SECRETARIAT EMBARKS ON SERIES OF VIRTUAL MEETINGS
June 3, 2021 – The ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF) secretariat has embarked on a series of virtual meetings and discussions to outline and discuss preparations for the upcoming ASEAN Para Games 2021 scheduled in Vietnam in December.
With less than six months before the commencement of the 11th edition of the Hanoi Games, APSF and the Vietnam ASEAN Para Games Organising Committee (VIEAPGOC) are stepping up efforts to ensure that all relevant parties and stakeholders are well-prepared to ensure the smooth running of the Games amid the challenging health environment caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Amongst the areas covered include Marketing, Classification as well as the Anti-Doping and NPC Service departments with Directors – Lim Chuan Beng (Marketing), Prof Datuk Dr Rokiah Omar (Classification), Rezza Dwi Brammadita (NPC Service) and Dr Badrul Amini Rasid (Anti-Doping) – outlining their respective plans for the Games. Prior to this, the Sports Department has also conducted its meeting with Technical Delegates of the respective sports.
APSF and VIEAPGOC are facing great challenges in various organisational aspects of the Games following the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak which requires the host to adhere to even stricter operating procedures to ensure the safety of athletes, officials, contingents and the masses. The secretariat is working hand in hand with VIEAPGOC to streamline various areas of the Games with more meetings expected in the coming weeks and months.
Eleven sports will be contested in the Games to be held around Hanoi and its vicinity from 17 to 23 December. Sports to be featured include Athletics, Archery, Badminton, Boccia, Chess, Goalball, Judo, Powerlifting, Swimming, Table Tennis and Wheelchair Tennis
