Lecture by Deaflympic and Paralympic athletes

December 4, 2015
Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa:

Takada Yuji, a Deaflympian, and his wife Chiaki, an Asia-Paralympian who is visually impaired, were invited to a lecture meeting at a junior high school in Yokohama near Tokyo on December 3.
Takada spoke to all the students in the lecture. "If you come across the person in trouble regardless of disability, it is important for you to ask if you could help. 

The Olympics and Paralympics will be held in Tokyo in 2020. A lot of people are expected to gather from all over the world. If you see a person in trouble, I want you to speak to the person if help is needed, too."

Chiaki has been applying herself to training at present aiming at competition in the Rio Paralympics which will be held next year. She hopes eagerly that she gets a gold metal and puts it on her son.
