24th IHF Women's World Championships - reflections

Watching the live coverage from the matches and hearing the local Japanese cheering for the players has been so encouraging. Proud Dad and photographer on the spot, Bob Wood, received a Facebook fan letter for the team. Here's just an excerpt ....

"I'm a Japanese watching the preliminary rounds at the Yamaga gymnasium. I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations. Australian athletes were very careful to take photos, sign autographs, shake hands, and treat each of us with care. I was impressed by that polite form.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the players who taught me something important. These scenes cannot be seen in the media, and they can be felt only because they are there.

I was really glad that I could feel the Australian player's atmosphere close to me when I came to watch the game. Thank you Sally and all other players!"

Thank you to all the welcoming audiences.
