From the articles published in the magazines “Sports Graphic Number” and “Number Web”, we will introduce the “Quotations” of top athletes and leaders. This time, there are many words and famous scenes related to the Tokyo Olympics.
＜Famous Quote 1＞
After all, the Olympics are special.
(Shigeo Nagashima / NumberWeb delivered on July 24, 2021)
Regarding the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics, Keigo Oyamada, who was in charge of composing the music, resigned, and Kentaro Kobayashi, who was the show director in charge of directing, was dismissed. The Olympics have reached the opening time in an irregular situation held without spectators.
At the opening ceremony, singer MISIA sang “Kimi ga Dai”. A pictogram-based explanation of the competition, Mirai Moriyama, Ebizo Ichikawa, and others appeared … The most talked-about thing was probably that many game songs were used in the admission marches of each country. In particular, the theme of Koichi Sugiyama’s “Dragon Quest” series, which passed away this year, became a big topic not only in Japan but also in the world.
At the Holy Fire Relay, Tadahiro Nomura and Saori Yoshida, Sadaharu Oh, the chairman of the Softbank baseball team, and Shigeo Nagashima, the honorary director of the Giants for the rest of their lives, were connected by Hideki Matsui, a former New York Yankees disciple of Nagashima. Naomi became the final runner.
The opening words are the motivation for the Olympics that Mr. Nagashima talked about in 2018. Mr. Corona, who said, “If I could get involved in some way, it would be the best life for me,” couldn’t have predicted the corona sickness-he worked on intense rehabilitation and played a major role.

◇ Explanation ◇
At the Tokyo Olympics in the summer of 2021, the most exciting competition for viewers would be-judo.
Five gold medals for boys and four for girls, for a total of nine gold medals. Two silver medals and one bronze medal, a total of twelve, are outstanding compared to the number of medals in France, which is second in the competition (2 gold, 3 silver, 3 bronze).
The story was also outstanding. If Uta Abe and 123 win the first-ever brother and sister gold medal on the same day, Ohno, who directed Kosei Inoue and called him “the strongest judoka I’ve seen,” is overwhelming. I was able to overwhelm my rivals.
And Wolf Aaron, who entered the extra time with amazing stamina and established the word “Wolf Time”, and Naori Hamada, the queen of ground fighting who was also described as “Ari Hell”, also gave out strong points.
It was no wonder that the leadership and centripetal force of the boys, Inoue, and the girls, Katsuyuki Masuchi, who lead the members of such a multi-talented sword, also attracted attention.
