August 20, 2012 at the Ceremony to Present the Certificate of Honor to the Members of the Japanese National Team of the London 2012 Games of the XXX Olympiad

"I really think that the entire Japanese public was watching your every move and supporting you, each from his or her own personal situation. But within all that transpired, there were three things that moved me. The first of these was the world-champion level of fair play you exhibited. The second thing that moved me was your teamwork and the strength of your bonds. And the third was your spirit of never giving up. I was able to learn a lot in particular regarding these three points. It is of course entirely fitting to say, 'The Japanese Olympic team performed stellarly.' But I will be so bold as to say that this was in fact 'the stellar nature of Japan itself.' I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to you who have given us such marvelous inspiration."
