Team profile

Japan

Over our participation in the last Olympics in London in 2012, Japan has claimed their brilliant bronze medal for 28 years at the London Olympics. And in 2013, the team won the bronze medal at World Grand Champions Cup since 2001. In 2014 Japan won the silver medal at World Grand Prix for the first time.
Starting from April, as the Japan Women’s new head coach, Nakada’s squad has started their first training camp this season in Tokyo, heading for the Women’s World Cup 2019.
Japan used to be a powerhouse in the past and Nakada’s squad will challenge this year to show everyone an unforgettable performances, since Japan has claimed its first FIVB medal for 32 years at the FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship Japan 2010, showing their outstanding performances.
The final goal for the moment of Nakada’s squad – to win more brilliant medal in Tokyo after just a year - is, needless to say, unchanged. Recognizing that most participating teams in the Olympics are very hard to beat, Nakada and her players will fight bravely in order to get over their every hurdle. Leading by the head coach, Kumi Nakada, our team is hoping to compete with dazzling performances which will catch the eyes of audience. Thank you very much.
