The Deaf high school students look at the
messages written by the gold medalists.
Toyama Prefecture located in a part of northern Japan is proud of its two native athletes, a male judoist and a female wrestler, who won a gold medal at the recent Olympics in Brazil. They wrote a message for young children at the request of the Prefecture Education Board.
The board plans to hand a copy of the messages to encourage an athlete in a send-off party before a national tournament.
Two Deaf students, who will participate in the National School for the Deaf Sports Meet (field and track, and table tennis), received a copy of the messages at the party held at the Prefecture Office on October 4.
