The 50th anniversary National Deaf School Athletic Convention was held in the Komazawa Olympic Park Athletic Field in Tokyo on November 7-9. About 1,000 officials and spectators participated and 280 athletes from 45 schools for the Deaf across Japan competed.
The high school track team of the University of Tsukuba School for the Deaf in Ichikawa-shi, Chiba Prefecture won the fourth straight championship: both the championships for boys and girls, and the men's and women's relays.
Also many of the teammates took out the personal best record, and they demonstrated the best result of daily practice. The team was also overjoyed with the highly achieved results of the championships.
