Indonesia’s two Olympic silver medal-winning weightlifters from 2016 Rio Olympic Games have been awarded free houses by their national governing body.

The Indonesian Weightlifting Federation promised the gesture to Eko Yuli Irawan and Sri Wahyuni Agustiani, runners-up in the respective men’s 62 kilograms and women’s 48kg categories, during a two-day meeting in South Jakarta.

“This is a sign of support for our high-achieving athletes,” Indonesian Weightlifting Federation chairman Rosan Roeslani said.

“We hope this token of appreciation can inspire other weightlifters to achieve maximum results at two major upcoming events, the 2018 Asian Games (in Jakarta) and 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
