Ryota, it looks like you’re in a good mood today.
That’s because the Japanese team took first place in the relay race! The entire stadium roared with excitement, and I was thrilled even though I was thrilled even though I was on volunteer duty at the time.

I was happy to see the Japanese team win, too. When the host country’s athletes get a good result, the whole event is better off. Hey, that swimmer over there is calling us.

You’re right! I’ll go! Can I help you?
May I have a towel?
Of course. Here you are.
Thanks.

I heard that you swam your personal best today.
I did! Of course I’d rather win a medal, but it’s more important to swim the best race you can. Honestly, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the others. Then I saw how hard you volunteers are working, and it really inspired me to go all out. I appreciate it.

I’m so glad to hear you say that. Thank you!

Wow, Ryota. That must have been nice to hear.
It sure was. You know, I decided to give volunteering a try because I wanted to meet top athletes. But then I started to feel like I was participating in the event right along with them! That’s the real fun of being a volunteer.
