The National Paralympic Committee (NPC) of Indonesia has returned its surplus funding to the nation's Government in a bid to help with the relief from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rima Ferdianto, NPC of Indonesia deputy secretary-general said that there is now more focus for the athletes to train later and focus for next year as well as mentioning help to fight the coronavirus.
Speaking to The Jakarta Post, Ferdianto said, "We have communicated with the Youth and Sports Ministry and they agreed to suspend training for the Paralympic athletes, so we will send them back home at the end of this month.
"As for the training funds allocated to the Paralympics preparation, we will give back the remaining funds to assist the Government in handling the coronavirus outbreak."
This year's Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics will instead be hosted at a later date and will likely take place next summer.
There have been more than 1,100 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Indonesia with more than 100 of those people dying from the virus.
The news of the postponement of the Olympics has also helped the nation's NPC and National Olympic Committee (NOC) to plan what comes next with the decision helping with clarity for the national bodies.
"The ministry, along with the NOC and NPC, will immediately review the available budget for our training programmes, since the Government is now focused on preventative measures for the coronavirus outbreak," said the Youth and Sports Ministry.
Indonesia are also set to bid on the next possible Summer Olympics with the nation looking for support to host the 2032 Games.
