Riau Ega Agatha became one of the two Indonesian archery athletes who had locked tickets for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Riau won tickets to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, after winning the bronze medal for the Red and White at the 2018 Asian Games.
These achievements, earned him one slot in the men’s recurve individual number. During this archery athlete, a native of Blitar East Java has never won a gold medal. Quoted from worldarchery.org, Riau has won five medals, with details of four bronze and one silver.
He presented three bronze medals while participating in the world championship. While one was won at the 2018 Asian Games. As for one silver medal, he won while attending the international Event Circuits tournament in Bangkok in 2018.
At the 2016 Rio Olympics, it was noted that Riau Ega was also able to make it difficult for South Korean flagship athlete Kim Woo-jin. Unfortunately, at that time Riau Ega still could not present a medal for the Indonesian Team. Now athletes who claim to practice every day by shooting 150-250 arrows per day, have great potential to be able to win gold. The opportunity was present at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, next July.
Riau, which is now ranked 65th in the world, together with its partners Hendra Purnama and Arif Dwi Pangestu, are still working hard, hunting for tickets for team numbers at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
