Comments from captain Atsuki Ono

Honestly, I am slightly surprised that I achieved second place at this tournament. I have been practicing judo for almost 10 years now, and this is my first time on the podium. This was not just an individual achievement, but the result of tough practices with and encouragement from team members, support for our club from generous alumni, wise guidance of our grand master, and invaluable help from my parents. I will continue to practice with my teammates and aim for better results, and will direct this energy to my research, which begins this year.
