Bogor (ANTARA News) - Jakartas woman runner Triyaningsih grabbed the gold medal in the womens 10,000m run category of the National Sports Week (PON) XIX held at the Pakasanri Sports Stadium in Cibinong, Bogor, West Java, on Saturday evening (Sept. 24).

In the run race amid a drizzle, the Semarang-born athlete of Central Java touched the finish line with a time of 35:28.18.

It was a far cry from her own national record of 32:49.47 and PON record (also her own) of 34:21.60.

It is for the fourth time that Triyaningsih won the 10,000m run in the PON. She had similarly taken home PON gold medals in South Sumatra in 2004, in East Kalimantan in 2008 and in Riau in 2012.
