On the 24th, General Manager Harada responded to an interview in Sapporo, where the all-Japan ski jumping championship was held. "The Tokyo Olympics were held, and I think we were impressed and were able to hold it thanks to the cooperation of many people. I'm not following that, but I want everyone to play seriously at the Beijing Games, "he said." I think the players are the most worried because there isn't much information on this tournament. I want to be able to give it up. I am involved in ski jumping, but I think it is a competition where I can expect medals, so I want you to play an active part. "
