Bali's Man in Beijing at the 2008 Olympics

Bali's Westin Resort Provides Coach for Indonesian Olympic Team


(8/9/2008)

Among the Indonesian athletes proudly representing the Republic at the Beijing Olympic Games will be a young man more typically found on duty at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali leading the Resort's recreational team.

An avid wind surfer, Wayan Sujana first joined The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali in 1991 as a recreational attendant. He has always maintained a passion for extreme sports and over the years has participated in many tournaments, winning gold medals as a windsurfer. Now, as a senior athlete, he has been named the official coach for the Indonesian wind surfing team competing in the Beijing Olympics. While still serving as an active athlete, Sujana won the Bali Open in 1994, the pre-tournament National Championships in Jakarta as well as East Java in 1995 and 1999.

Sujana's first foray into coaching was in 2005 when his team won a silver medal in SEA Games in Manila. From there his coaching carrier began to soar and he then led his team to win gold as well as silver medals in prestigious events such as the Singapore Open, World Championship Hong Kong Open, Sailing Championship in Doha, ASEAN Games in Doha and the SEA Games. However, his crowning achievement to date is being chosen to be the official coach for the Indonesian wind surfing team competing in the Beijing Olympics.

Married with 3 children, Sujana is an easy going and fun loving person. He now leads the Recreational Team at The Westin Bali where his main goal is to ensure that guests receive energizing and renewing activities during their time at the Resort.

"We are extremely proud to have Sujana, represent Indonesia in the Beijing Olympics as the official coach of the wind surfing team. He not only represents Indonesia but also the spirit of all Westin associates at the resort. Sujana is a perfect Brand champion and a role model to all of us." commented Bipan Kapur, General Manager of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
