The Italian walking team will be at a training camp in Tokorozawa City, Saitama Prefecture from April 11 (Wed) until April 26 (Thu) in preparation for the World Championships to be held in May.
Five Italian race walkers, who will participate in the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships to be held on May 5 and 6 in Taicang, China, came to Japan on April 11. On the following day, they visited our Tokorozawa campus to see the site conditions and attended the welcome reception held for them at the Tokorozawa Aviation Memorial Park. They have been in training since April 13.
We have dispatched two interpretation volunteers to support them during their training.
Waseda University, Saitama Prefecture, and Tokorozawa City concluded a Memorandum of Understanding on Pre-Olympic Games Training Camps with the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) on October 19, 2017.
We would highly appreciate your continued support.
