« This event is an implementation of Presidential Decree No. 86 of 2021 concerning DBON so that it can run and be carried out in regional centers. Especially for East Java, we will focus on the center at the State University of Surabaya (Unesa), because there is a sports faculty and is supported by a sports science laboratory, » say
