Aug. 19, 2016

In the men’s singles table tennis event at the Games of the 31st Olympiad (the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics), Jun Mizutani (a 2013 graduate of the School of Political Science and Economics) won the bronze medal, and Koki Niwa (a fourth-year student in the School of Political Science and Economics) came in fifth. This was a splendid feat, because it was the first time ever for a Japanese athlete to win a medal in the Olympic table tennis singles event, and also in any Olympic men’s table tennis event.
