Situbondo (ANTARA) – Situbondo Regency, East Java, which is one of the hosts for the VII East Java Provincial Sports Week (Porprov) continues to make preparations, including the East Java Porprov Fire Torch Carriage and the release of the contingent.
The chairman of the Situbondo Regency KONI, Deny Wahyu Pribadi, stated that Situbondo as the host will also take part in the East Java Porprov Fire Torch Carriage, on 21 June.
“So, the torch relay marks the start of the porprov event in East Java,” said Deny, after the Coordination Meeting of the East Java Provincial Sports Week (Porprov) Fire Torch Coordination Meeting and the release of the contingent at the Situbondo KONI Hall, Friday (10/6) night.
He said the torches would be paraded towards the eastern region of Situbondo. From Panji District to Banyuputih District (Situbondo-Banyuwangi border), then the fire torches will be paraded again towards the city and will be welcomed by outstanding athletes on Jalan Basuki Rahmat.
Later, the athletes while jogging will welcome the porprov fire torch from in front of the KDS shopping center, towards the Situbondo Regency Hall, and will be received by the Deputy Regent of Situbondo.
In the evening, according to Deny, the contingent of Situbondo continued to be released. It is also an entertainment event as an introduction for athletes to compete in several East Java Porprov championships.
The next day (22/6), the VIII East Java Porprov Fire Torch Carriage was again paraded to the west, namely in Banyuglugur District, which borders Probolinggo Regency. Furthermore, the torches were handed over to KONI of East Java Province to be brought to Lumajang Regency, which is also one of the porprov hosts.
“The porprov fire is an eternal fire that was taken from Mount Ijen, on June 19, 2022 and lodged in Bondowoso. Then on June 21, 2022 it was handed over to the Situbondo Regency Government,” said Deny.
In the coordination meeting, Deny asked the athletes, officials and coaches to jointly bring the good name of Situbondo, by making various achievements in a number of championships.
