Senior athlete’s passion forward basketball. Looking ahead to the future.
Impressions after participated in the World Masters Games 2017 Auckland
The result is 1 victory won by default, and 4 defeats. However, they were able to compete with athletes whose body size is very different at the senior age category (over 65) and they enjoyed playing basketball very much. By making the most of this experience, Mr. Yamakami realized the first victory of the international competition at the senior tournament in Italy in July.
Mr. Yamakami and his teammates enjoyed exchanges not only in Auckland city but also at Basketball competition venue. In the competition venue and in the city, they met a lot of people gathering information for participating in the WMG 2021 Kansai, and they are looking forward to their participation in the Kansai Games.
Also, in the Basketball of the Auckland Game, the system making automatic game video called “GLORY LEAGUE” was introduced. As a result, not only the video of the game was delivered to each participant immediately after the game but also various stats such as the state of the game, the box score, and the shot chart could be freely browsed, so they could enjoy their games even after returning home.
