RAFTING
National   CHAMPIONSHIP
R4
Batang Merangin
,
Apa kabar?
(How are you?)

November 2019 I flied to Jambi, Sumatera island,
1109 km away from home,

I shot “Rafting R4 National Championship”.

I covered the pictures for the Mastermen team of
DIY
(Yogyakarta) Province.

I volunteered to do it while I accompanied my
hubby who was one of the athletes.

Mastermen is a class of rafting for 40 years old
above.

I accompanied this team as photographer and
social media organizer since 2017 when this team
represented Indonesia in World Rafting
Championship
in Japan.
,
We were welcomed by the cows 😁
in Batang Merangin Village
where the championship will be held.
,
The day was started by a nice sunrise at
Batang Merangin Village.

Living together as a team
with eating traditional foods
were our daily routine before the battle at the river.

We are just human that sometimes
drowning or fall.
It’s not humiliating
to spend time to stand up again.

(Quotes by JW)
,
,
Honestly I often can’t concentrate to shoot
while hearing they were screaming to pump up
their adrenaline.

Sometimes I just startled and frightened
to see them fighting on the river,
forget my camera.

😢

Meanwhile health treatments is a must
for athletes, right? 🤣

My dear hubby ❣️

It was so exhausted for them according to their ages.
But they inspired us with they never give up spirit 💪.
“Never give up is not about the age”
,
Yeay...!
Finally it’s over!
Zero accidents!
3 silver medals + 1 bronze medal!
,
Yeay! I am also finished my duty as the photographer 😉
,
We must say good bye to the bats who always
accompanied us in the afternoon at Batang Merangin.

We went back by driving a car for 10 hours to the city then
flied back to Jakarta.

Terima kasih, thanks for reading my story.
