【Comments by Ryoichi Ohashi, Mayor of Kazo City】
As the Host Town of the Republic of Colombia, Kazo City has been involved in various projects including hosting pre-competition training camps of weight lifting and wresting teams and events for schools and local people to interact with Colombian athletes.
We are going to host a pre-competition training camp of Columbian teams in July, and the torch relay will go through the city of Kazo on July 8. Kazo City will take it as a great opportunity to create a city full of energy using the power of sports with everyone in the city. We are grateful to have concluded a comprehensive agreement with Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Inc. as this will provide us great support to “create a city where young people gather together” through sports.
