    JAPAN – National team members announced
    JAPAN – National team members announced [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]Following the National Championships held few weeks ago, the Nippon badminton Association announced today the new team members for the upcoming season. Some surprises, with Shoji Sato leaving the squad, and the arriving of Kanako Yonekura as a coach.

    Story : Miyuki Komiya, Badzine Correspondent in Tokyo. Photos (archives) : Badmintonphoto

    Good players might make good coaches. This is what Japan is banking on, after announcing that Kanako Yonekura and Keita Masuda will join the coaching force after their long career as players.

    But the biggest surprise was a name missing in the men’s single squad, as Shoji Sato, long time top player in his home country, doesn’t appear in the list given out to the press.



    After the National Championships, where he was beaten in the final by young and promising player Kenichi Tago, Shoji Sato didn’t take the offer of staying in the team. “I would like to try to be a double players and maybe qualify for London Olympics as [​IMG]such, but I don’t decide on the details” said the Japanese. His coaches, however, have since expressed that this solution might not be an option. As a result of which, his name doesn't appear anywhere.

    The men’s double squad sees off top pair of Ohtuska and Masuda with new comers Kenta Kazuno and Kenichi Hayakawa who were runners-up of the All Japan Championship this year, beating Ohtsuka / Masuda.

    Another Sato will be arriving in the squad however, in the ladie's single team, with Sayaka Sato, the new pearl of Japan Badminton who stunned everyone by scooping the silver medal at the recent World Junior Championships. Yu Hirayama wasn’t selected, but instead, another youngster in the name of Masayo Nojirino (photo below). The teenager was winner in the All Japan Workforce Championship this year.

    Ogura and Shiota still on the team

    Regardless who they will be partnering next, Reiko Shiota and Kumiko Ogura’s names where on the official list of selected players. So were Maeda and Suetsuna, last Olympics Games semi finalists, but the latter announced she wouldn’t go all the way to London’s Olympics.

    [​IMG]Japan’s team is now much younger, with lots of hopes rising with the new leaders, Kenichi Tago and Eriko Hirose.

    I see they mainly wear Mizuno shoes. Mizuno is more known for Volleyball than badminton stuff, right?

    Well, anyway I have a pair of white Mizuno football boots. Ok ok only, cannot compare to Puma, in my opinion.
