He also won a bronze medal in the team with Muhammad Bakri Akbar and Julio Irfandi.Tera is the second of four children; his father works for the Ministry of Agriculture, and his mother is a loving housewife. As the only family member who works as an athlete, Tera began shooting as a sport in 2014, while studying at Jakarta State University (UNJ), when he was only 17. Tera was born on April 13, 1997, in Jakarta, and met Masruri, a former shooting athlete who eventually became a coach, during an athlete search program for the 2016 West Java National Sports Week (PON). 

Tera pursued soccer and futsal once, as UNJ required all students to participate in sports. The 2018 Asian Games was the first international sporting event where he competed in two events: the 10-meter running mixed target and the 10-meter running standard target. Tera had also won a Gold at the SEA Games, and has competed in world shooting championships in recent years. (rp)
