Japanese Team Arrives!
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!
