Workshop & 1 year Pre Para Athletic Training Camp @ NSSU

ワークショップ & 1年前パラ陸上トレーニングキャンプ @ 日体大




One year before Tokyo 2020, from September 12 to 18, 2019, we held a workshop and a para-athletics training camp at NSSU.​

On the first and the second day, we held a workshop for the purpose of acquiring the knowledge necessary for improving competitiveness and clarifying the challenges by performance analysis. From the third day onwards, we held a para-athletics training camp at Kenshidai campus.We invited 23 athletes and coaches from 10 countries and had 4 facilitators from 4 countries with specialized knowledge in specific fields. This was the largest program in NEPP history for Tokyo 2020.​

We also held a para-sports interaction event with local elementary school students. The athletes looked very happy to do activities with kids who had were very curious about the para-sports and different culture from different countries.​We were very glad to hear that the kids and their parents saying "We would like to focus not only on the Olympic Games but also on the Paralympics".
