Jakarta. Indonesia is close to securing the top spot at the 2017 Asean Para Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which ends on Saturday (23/09).

The Games are a series of disabled multi-sport events for athletes in Southeast Asia.

The Indonesian contingent at the Games has won a total of 91 gold, 54 silver and 38 bronze medals, as of Thursday (21/09).

With only one more day left in the Games, Indonesia is almost guaranteed the top spot, ranking above host Malaysia, which will likely come in second.

Bayu Rahadian, Indonesia's chef de mission, believes the country will win 18 more medals by the event's close.

"We've calculated additional medals we can get for tomorrow, I hope it will happen so that Indonesia can be the winner in Malaysia," Bayu said on Thursday night.

Indonesia last won the Asean Para Games in 2014.
