In this XX Papua PON, Maria Natalia Londa managed to win a gold medal with a jump of 6.26 meters. However, this achievement can still not break the national record that was recorded by himself with a jump record of 6.70 meters.
When met by reporters, Maria Natalia Londa said that her party admitted that facing XX PON during a pandemic like this was very difficult for all athletes, especially during training sessions. But his party is still trying to adapt to all conditions to present achievements for the province of Bali.

Maria revealed that for PON XX Papua, the most challenging factor was the problem of erratic weather.
