C. Java sends two fighters for SEAG

SEMARANG (JP): The Indonesian Pencak Silat Association (IPSI) has called two Central Java-based pesilat (fighters) to join its training session for the Kuala Lumpur 2001 Southeast Asia Games (SEAG), said Central Java chapter chairman Rohadi on Monday.

"Ronny Saifullah and Haris Nugroho are now already preparing in the training center. Considering their skills, I believe them worthy of taking part in the Games."

"Both pesilat contributed gold medals at the 2000 Pencak Silat World Championship held in Jakarta last November," he said.

Haris grabbed the gold medal in the men's E (65-70kgs) class, defeating Dinh Cong Son, while Ronny beat Malaysian Azhar bin Ahmad in the men's G (75-80kgs) class.

"They will also be the backbone of Central Java's pencak silat team for the 2004 National Games in Palembang, South Sumatra," said Rohadi.
