Welcome everyone to Tokyo! Thank you very much for your participation in the Asia Junior Sports Exchange Games 2016! We would like welcome you warningly to our event.
Now a message from this year’s Ambassador Ai Fujinuma:
“Welcome everyone! I have been looking forward to seeing all you here! I first participated in this event back when I was only 11 years old. My experiences and memories from this event had a huge impact on my future dreams. People from all over Asia coming together through this exchange is a great time and opportunity. Experiences gained through this event will give you greater self-confidence and motivation, not just in sports, but also in life.
I think that it is amazing that even through cultural and language differences, people from around the world can all come together through sports.
We truly hope that your experience in the sports tournament we leave you with a stronger sense of determination and accomplishment.
In addition, it would bring us extreme pride if our participants qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
We have high expectations due to our firm belief that everyone possesses hidden capabilities. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone for their support and extend my upmost sense of gratitude.”
