Ms. Kato comments “I had the honor to represent my country as a goal keeper in the U20 Handball World Championship. Once we reached the qualifying round, and advancing on to the main round, we finished in 9th place. It was the second highest result achieved in history for handball in Japan. It was the first time for myself to compete in a world class competition as well as playing against a European team. Beinf able to see the world’s top players up close and play with them was exciting and extremely stimulating.”


Ms. Kato and her team of Under 20 ranked 9th overall at the championships.
