We have received a message from Mr. Mike Sharrock,CEO of British Paralympic Association.

The British Paralympic Association is incredibly proud to have worked with Keio University and the cities of Yokohama City and Kawasaki City to deliver our pre-Games Preparation Camp. This camp was an essential part of our Games time operations and vital to the success of our team at the Games. Our partners embraced the complexity that the pandemic posed and delivered world class facilities and the best possible environment for our athletes and staff to prepare in.

More than that though, they embraced our vision to use sport to inspire a better world for disabled people. Through accessibility modifications to facilities and engagement events with local citizens both in person pre pandemic and now virtually we have inspired change and learnt from each other. We are very grateful for the warmth and enthusiasm of everyone we worked with and look forward to continuing our work together in the future.
