(11/9/2012)

Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika has volunteered Bali’s readiness to serve as the host location for the National Sport Festival (Pesta Olah Raga National – PON) in 2016.

According to the National News Agency Antara, the Governor has stepped forward, saying that if West Java is unable or unprepared to fulfill the role as host for PON 2016, Bali must have the fortitude to fill that role. Pastika told the press that Bali has the manpower, the infrastructure and supporting facilities to successfully host the games.

The Governor made his comments at a final meeting of the Bali contingent just returned from the PON 2012 held in Riau.

Pastika said Bali was fortunate in hot having to expend funds to build athlete housing for the 2016 games because of the large number of starred and non-starred hotels already in place on the island are sufficient to accommodate participants, officials and accompanying families.

Unlike Riau where some athletes had to travel as many as eight hours to arrive at a sport venues, the distances between the various regencies in Bali are not that great with the most distant location only three hours away.

Governor Pastika said that many athletes in Indonesia were urging Bali to step into the role of host for PON-2016, motivated to a great extent by the natural beauty of Bali and the island’s strategic central location within Indonesia.

Pastika said he was confident that if PON-2106 is held in Bali would provide great economic benefit to the lower economic classes on the island, while also helping to promote Bali to Indonesia and the world.

The province of Bali ranked 9th among all provinces in terms of medals won at the PON-2012 just completed in Riau. To see Bali’s share of the medals increase in the future, the Governor ask that full attention be paid starting from now on developing participants for the 2016 games.
