The Deaflympic Winter Games which were to be opened in Slovakia were suddenly canceled.

A Deaf high school student, KITASHIRO Daichi (17), who is currently enrolled in the mainstream program, was an alpine skier on the Japanese national team, returning home in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture on February 18.

He has restarted the practice, switching regrettable feelings, and working hard at training for the Deaflympic Games four years later.
