Welcome to Tokyo! I have been looking forward to meeting all of you!
My name is MAMIKO Toyoda. I am a para-badminton athlete and an ambassador for these Games. There are only two more years to go until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Recently, the number of people competing in para-badminton has been increasing each year, and the sport is gaining popularity not only in Japan but around the globe as well.
For the Olympic and Paralympic Games to come together and generate excitement as one, I would like as many people as possible to know about each other’s sport.
And, I am hoping you will have fulfilling five days, and through badminton, come to understand each other’s cultures and deepen exchanges, interacting with as many people as possible.
Although it is only for a short period, I hope all of you have a great time and do your best!
