Two athletes from the Jaya Batangtoru Athletic Club managed to climb to the podium again at the Kaldera Toba Marathon Festival 2022. Both are Viktor Victorius Mendrofa who won third place in the 21K Marathon Category and Lusiana who won second place in the 10K Marathon Category. The Toba Caldera Marathon Festival 2022 is a marathon competition event held by the Bandung Institute of Technology Alumni Association (IA-ITB) together with the Gaja Toba Semesta Association, which is also supported by the Lake Toba Authority Management Body and the Toba Regency Government.
Jaya Athletics Club trainer Negro Pelita said the athletes won the championship because of their hard work and support from PT Agincourt Resources (PTAR). This club has been fostered by PTAR since 2016 under the Community Relations Department and actively facilitates athletes to participate in various athletic competitions at the regional, national and international levels.
PTAR Senior Manager Government Relations Irwanto Situmorang said, “The company has a strong commitment to fostering children and youth not only in the field of education but also in sports and culture, one of which is through the Jaya Atletik Club. “We see that there is great potential for young athletes from Batangtoru. We want to continue to support children and youth in villages around the Martabe Gold Mine to achieve their goals. Our form of support is in the form of assistance to various facilities.”
