In addition, Emrizal Pakis said, his party urged the trainers to pay attention to air conditions, especially for athletes who practice outdoors.

Emrizal said he was worried about the smog that had hit Riau today. Because, this haze can disrupt the schedule of athletes who will follow the 2019 Pre PON championship in a number of regions in Indonesia.

"Do not repeat the incident 5 years ago, our athletes were delayed leaving, some departed through Batam Airport, Padang and North Sumatra (North Sumatra), and some even used land routes," he said.

"If the smoke haze gets worse and interferes with visibility of flights at the Sultan Syarif Kasim II International Airport in Pekanbaru, this certainly reduces the chances of athletes competing in the Pre-PON," he concluded.
