Three ICU students selected as members of the national team for the WFDF 2018 World U-24 Ultimate Championships
Update: May 30, 2017
Mr. Takahiro Okimasa (4th year student), Mr. Kentaro Nakao (4th year student) and Mr. Noritoshi Miyachi (4th year student) of ICU's flying disc club, ICU WINDS have been selected as members of the national team which will be participating in the WFDF World U-24 Ultimate Championships to be held in Perth, Australia from January 7 to January 13, 2018.
I started playing Ultimate after I entered ICU, and I am very happy to have been chosen as a member of the Japanese team. I will do my best to fulfill the role assigned to me and hope to contribute to the victory of our team. So, please root for us! I hope this occasion will become a catalyst to draw more attention to ICU's sports clubs and help them grow further.
I wanted to become a member of the Japanese team ever since I was a first-year student. Now, my dream has come true. I will do all I can for the team to win the gold medal. ICU has produced Japanese team members for the third consecutive tournament. I will give it everything I've got so ICU people will get to know ICU WINDS better and cheer for us.
We will go full blast to win gold. I hope our team will come up with the best results, which will cap the four years of my activities at ICU. I will do all I can as a representative of ICU WINDS so I will have no regrets! On this occasion, I hope you will begin following what ICU WINDS will be doing in the future. Please give us your support!
Ultimate is a team sport using a flying disc (so-called Frisbee). The seven members on a team pass a disc toward the opposing end zone located within 18 meters of both ends of a court 100 by 37 meters. A point is scored when one team catches the disc in the opposing team's end zone.
