Prime Minister NODA's BLOG

October 5, 2012, during the ceremony to present commemorative gifts to members of the Japanese National Team of the London 2012 Paralympic Games

"I believe that there were many who made truly excellent efforts even among the athletes who were unable to earn a medal. Ms. [Wakako] Tsuchida in the track and field category, it is truly regrettable that you fell, as happened in the previous Paralympic Games. But I think your unbreakable, unbeatable, and undaunted spirit through which you kept aiming for the goal right until the end, never giving up, inspired people from one end of the nation to the other, particularly those in the disaster-stricken areas. Each of you demonstrated your strengths to the fullest. You truly delivered a great deal of courage, inspiration, and hope to all the Japanese people, including myself."
