Indonesian Olympic Committee President Raja Sapta Oktohari has written to counterparts in Japan to offer assistance ahead of the rescheduled Tokyo Olympic Games. The choice to offer support allegedly comes after the notice of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe. Abe walked down as Prime Minister last week, quoting ill health.

The 65-year-old, who hurts from ulcerative colitis, is to obtain new and more prolonged action. Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party is set to vote on Abe’s successor on September 14. Oktohari has promised to support Japan as the country makes for the first postponed Olympics and Paralympics, after coronavirus forced the postponement of the Games to 2021.
“We hope the stepping down of Prime Minister Shinzō Abe will not disturb the preparation of the Olympics,” Oktohari supposed, according to the Xinhua news agency.
We will direct a letter to ask for what kind of help we can offer to Japan after the notice. The postponed Olympics are due to take place from July 23 until August 8 next year, shadowed by the Paralympics from August 24 to September 5. Should the Games take place as planned, Oktohari has predicted Indonesia, which is preparation a bid for the 2032 Games, could enjoy achievement in weightlifting.
He tinted progress made by Indonesian weightlifters in the build-up to the Games, counting Eko Yuli Irawan’s clean and jerk world best lift of 174 kilograms in the men’s 61kg occasion, which came at the 2018 World Championships.
“During the test of the progress of their capabilities, the lifters were not only able to break a national record, but also a world record,” Oktohari supposed.
If this can be maintained, I am confident that they would get gold medals in Tokyo. Weightlifting has been Indonesia’s main source of medals at the past three Summer Olympics. Three bronze medals were earned by the country at Beijing 2008, before two silver medals and a bronze at London 2012.
Indonesia won three medals in total at Rio 2016, with weightlifting providing two silvers. Irawan won medals across the three Games, winning silver at Rio 2016 after bronze at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012.
