Comments from cox Nozomi Maki

This international sports event was an extremely enjoyable experience. During the mixed eight race, half of our team — the ladies from UNIST — did not speak any Japanese, but I was able to create a positive atmosphere using English. In the future, I will strive to create similar good vibes during our practice sessions and races.
