The differences in the physical size of Japanese athletes in comparison with other international athletes made an impression on me at the Universiade Games. Almost all of our competitors had bodies that were at least one size larger than us, and I felt that we were at a serious disadvantage when competing with them one on one. However, I felt that the one area that Japanese athletes had an advantage was speed. Japanese athletes tend to be faster and have a sharper edge than other international competitors, giving us a strong advantage. The Universiade Games was a great experience for me. I was able to meet with people from various countries and learn about each of their cultures. If I have future opportunities to go overseas, I hope to take on that challenge.

My name is Kotarou Yamada, and I am a 1st year student in the Waseda University Skate Club. I participated in the Winter Universiade Games as an ice hockey representative. Unlike other world games that I’ve participated in the past, these games provided valuable experiences that can’t be experienced in normal away games. The Universiade Games have a unique Olympics-like atmosphere and provide opportunities for exchanges with athletes from other countries in the athlete’s villages.
In addition, both your own team and other teams have athletes from a wide range of ages. This allowed me to gain confidence and discover areas I need to grow in. I realized that I am lacking in the two major areas: English language skills and physical skills. In the future, I want to use the confidence I gained through these games and pursue these areas that need growth. I will devote myself to practice so I can proudly represent Waseda, and so that Japan can aim for the world. First, I will focus on working hard so that I can help make Waseda the Japanese champions.

This was the first time for me to be selected as a Japanese university representative, and I went to Erzurum in the Republic of Turkey for the XXV Winter Universiade Games. Students from around the world gather for the Universiade, and I was able to interact with athletes from many countries throughout the games. Though I wasn’t able to leave satisfying results in the competitions, I gained many experiences that I wouldn’t have been able to have in Japan. Through this, I learned more about my sport and also about many other things. In the future, I hope to use this experience to lead the Waseda University team. I will practice hard to increase the level of my own skills and that of the team.
