Henry added that ISG was actually an intermediate target for Perbakin. Perbakin’s focus is on a bigger event, namely the Olympics. Nearby, the Olympics will be held in 2024 in Paris, France.

Several events will be followed by Indonesian shooters in order to gain points in order to qualify for the Olympics. « After ISG we have to prepare for the qualifications in Egypt and Croatia in September and October, » he concluded. (R-3)
