Wheelchair Basketball 2024 JWBF Men’s Strengthened Player Designated Player Hiroaki Kozai Comments

I think the appeal of basketball is that you can feel joy when you grow both as an individual and as a team, and I think that’s what drives me as a player. Things that don’t go well or things that aren’t good happen during the process, but I’m very happy when what I’ve been practicing results in a match. There are a limited number of people who can wear the uniform of the Japanese national team. Therefore, I will cherish my daily practice so that I can grow together with my teammates, and when the game comes, I want to fight so that I can give it my all.

For me, representing Japan is the best opportunity for self-expression. Even people who don’t know me at all get to know me and support me through basketball. I think it’s amazing that people who didn’t know about us used their energy to support us. We would like to turn the energy of those who support us into strength and fight in our own way.
