Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan (AntaranewsKalsel) - The government of Banjarmasin will hold a number of traditional sports to commemorate the 34th National Sports Day (Haornas) 2017.
Head of the Banjarmasin Youth and Sports Agency AN Djaya said traditional sports such as balogo, enggerang, asinan and tarik tambang will be held on September 23, 2017, after Haornas on September 9.
He said his office needs to pay attention to the traditional sports under the management of the city's Sports Forum for Indonesian Recreation (FORMI) for coaching and preservation.
"Because FORMI builds this traditional sport with self-help, then we give space and activities to enliven the Haornas and the city anniversary," he explained.
In addition to traditional sports, said AN Djaya, fun walk will be held on September 16 and the bike race on September 21.
