J1 Kobe Iniesta Blind soccer challenge Para competition PR August 15 22:20
In order to get to know the charm of the Tokyo Paralympic Games, which has been about a year until the opening of the season, the world ’s first superstar, Andres Iniesta, a former Spanish national team and a member of J1 Vissel Kobe, tried out “Blind Soccer” for the first time. A video introducing you to has been released.
The video was produced by the Organizing Committee of the Games, and it took about a year from planning to completion of the video because it asked the world superstar Iniesta to cooperate to convey the appeal of the Tokyo Paralympic Games. It was.
Blind soccer that Iniesta is challenging on video is played by visually impaired players wearing eye masks and relying on the sound of a ball with a special bell and the shout of a guide standing behind the goal.
The video shows that a player on the field who is surprised at high-level play such as dribbling and shooting by the representatives of Japan was an Iniesta player when the eye mask was removed.
Then, “Let's experience this surprise,” a message is heard that you want to be aware of the appeal of the Paralympic Games by knowing the competition like Iniesta.
A making video will also be released, and scenes where Iniesta will get advice on dribbling forward by touching the ball finely as if sandwiched between both feet unique to blind soccer are also introduced.
In the interview, Iniesta said, “The Japanese players were great. Blind soccer was very difficult and complicated, but the training was so fun that I really want to watch the game.”
This video is available on the special site of the Organizing Committee.
