Depok-Jurnalis Nurhakim Baharizki, student of the Tax Administration study program, Vocational Education Program, Universitas Indonesia (UI) succeeded in making brilliant achievements at the 2023 Jakarta Open International Championship. Hakim managed to win a number of gold medals for the Senior Men Elimination 5000 M and Rellay categories, as well as a silver medal for the 1000 M category. The international roller skating championship was held at the Jakarta International Roller Track Arena (JIRTA), GOR Sunter, North Jakarta and was attended by 1,308 athletes from India, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

To achieve maximum results, Hakim has been doing intensive training every day for the last few months. “Performance that is less than optimal is an evaluation for me to pay attention to caution when training and competing to avoid injury,” said Hakim. Another challenge is that Hakim, who is also a student, needs to divide his time between practice and lectures. He also experienced burnout due to fatigue. “Aside from my increasingly busy study schedule, I need to maintain my health and performance as an athlete,” said Hakim.
