Mika, Ryota, well done. You held out until the end.
Brain, thank you so much.
Without you, I would never have been a sports volunteer.
So, how was it?
There two weeks flew by so fast. At first, I was really nervous, but it was just so exciting when new experiences came one after another. Now I realize that volunteers are not just helpers: our work supports the entire event. Plus, I made a lot of friends from over the world!

Excellent! How about you, Mika?

I feel a real sense of accomplishment. When I didn’t get a placement in my first choice, language support, I was a bit disappointed. But I had plenty of chances to use English once things started. And now I realize that sports are truly amazing.

What do you mean?
I’ll always remember those scenes of athletes from so many different countries competing right next to each other, straining hard to achieve the same goal.

That’s great to hear.
I wish the competition could keep going. But it’s all over now.
Now do you understand why I just can’t stop being a sports volunteer?
I sure do. In fact, I can’t wait to do this again!
Same with me!
Then there’s just one thing left to say …
See you at Tokyo 2020!
