Japanese Team Arrives!

Japanese Team Arrives!

15 Feb shonakamori No Comments »

Well, it’s time for the annual meet against the Japanese team (for Stanford).  And again, they’ve brought over a group of very talented under-21 gymnasts!  I’ll be helping them throughout the week with translating and getting them situated.  Last year there was a slight incident with one of the team members, and we had to make a quick trip to the emergency room (luckily he ended up being ok).  Hopefully things will be much better this time ::knock on wood::!!!

Super excited to see my old coach, Mutsumi Harada, again.  Mutsumi was a 2000 Olympian for the Japanese team, and he actually helped coach the Stanford team when I was a sophomore so he has some ties to the program here.

Stanford will take on Cal and the U-21 Japanese team on Saturday @ 7pm.  It’ll be an exciting meet.  Hope many of you will be able to make it out!
