Congratulations on winning the gold mdal in the giant slalom (sitting) event. Also, I would like to send my heartfelt congratulations on consecutive winning medals in four different events.

I am sure that not only Waseda University students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and fans but the entire Japanese nation was moved by your accomplishment and dedication to the sport.
