Marlingga Alfedo, a student of the Department of Physical Education and Health, UM, expressed her experience of arriving in Vietnam.
"Almost 14 years in the swimming world and had won representing UM in several inter-campus swimming events throughout Indonesia. In total, from all the events I have participated in, I managed to get 3 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze. In early 2016 there is an opportunity to join Triatlhon and join the Sports, to be precise at Jasalindo Sport, "he said.
Next Edo told the beginning of his struggle. Starting from 1 day of training 3 times while there are still lectures, feelings of doubt and doubt are extraordinary. That's a tough choice, but if you want to succeed, something must be sacrificed. However, the difference between non-academic achievement is limited to the age and golden age of the person himself. Every day we train hard, have the courage to make decisions, until we win 4 titles including Jepara International Triathlon: 2nd Sprint Distance Age Group 19-29 years, Pariaman intermational Triathlon: 2nd Sprint Distance Age Group 20-29 years, Palembang Triathlon: 3rd Standard Distance Age Group 20-25 years, so that it can be flown to Vietnam in the Tri Factor Asian Series: 1st Overall Standard Distance.

"Hopefully everyone will always be focused and enthusiastic in academic and non-academic fields. Always have a high desire to pursue life goals and ideals and don't forget to pray and be grateful. Don't be quick to be satisfied with the success you have achieved. So that later there will be more young people who excel at the national or international level, "he said.
