Soccer club member Natsumi Miyata, a 3rd-year student in the School of Business Administration, played for Japan's delegation to the 4th Asia Pacific Deaf Football Championships, held in Changwon, Korea, from April 23rd to May 6th. Team Japan won both of its matches, and earned the right to play in the 2020 World Championships. Miyata, who played in all of Team Japan’s games, was the team's leading scorer.

With a smile on her face, Miyata commented, “I’m relieved that we could win at the Asia Pacific Championships, but I’m not satisfied with just Asia. I want to level up even more for the World Championships in two years, which will be a monumental challenge. Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and support, and I hope that you’ll continue to support us.”
