Did you know Japan is the all time medal count leader at a whopping 2,650 medals? That is a lot of medals. To be more accurate, 910 of those medals are gold! That is also a lot of gold. This year, Japan is ranked 3rd in the medal count so far behind the host South Korea (#2) and China (#1). The competition has been fierce, and there have been all kinds of sports available to watch nightly here in Japan! It seems that Japan has been dominating swimming, fencing, judo and gymnastics! As a fan of volleyball star Kimura Saori, I have been keeping an eye out for the Japanese women volleyball matches.
It promises to be an exciting matchup in the semis; with China, South Korea, Japan and Thailand making the cut! Are you keeping up with the Asian Games? Have you heard of this huge sporting event? At any rate, the games end tomorrow! 日本、日本！頑張れ！！
