A challenge to the Waka Ama race without the experience!!
Impressions after participated in the Auckland Games
For the 10km road race, 11 members of “Kyoto Josei Sports Organization” entered the competition. While there are many participants gathered for the race, ladies with pink uniform have drawn many attention, and also added colorfulness to the race. The race was full of excitement with many Japanese cheering for runners, and all members have finished running for the race.
They said that competing in the Waka Ama race with six members was such a memorable race to experience the culture of Masters. While it was the race which they have never tried before, experienced competitors of overseas with their own oar gave hospitable lessons before the race begins.
It was a tough race when the race begins, because it is the first challenge for them. However, while other teams are finishing one after another, Kyoto Josei Sports Organization’s team struggles with their first experience with waka ama race, then the announcement and cheering reached to Kyoto Josei Sports Organization’s canoe, “This is their first challenge!” and “They are coming from Kyoto to conduct PR activities for 2021 Kansai Games!”. When they finished the race, other competitors made oar arch to welcome ladies, they felt unspeakable emotions coming through their bodies.
The enthusiasm for World Masters Games 2021 KANSAI

For the WMG2021 KANSAI Games, Kyoto prefecture will conduct next sports: Canoe (Marathon), Cycling (Mountain Bike), Handball, Soft Tennis, Triathlon (Duathlon) and Gate Ball.
As they said, members of Kyoto Josei Sports Organization are cooperating with us in order to make 2021 Kansai Games successful and make the most of their wonderful experience to connect with Kansai Games.
