bronze medal 銅メダル
———————-
A 14-year-old is in the news. Harimoto Tomokazu has become the youngest player to win the Men’s Singles at the All Japan Table Tennis Championships. He beat 28-year-old Mizutani Jun, a 9-time champion and the winner of the bronze medal at the last Olympics. He also won the ITTF World Tour Men’s Singles title in the Czech Republic last August. That made him the youngest winner of a World Tour. Actually, Harimoto comes from a table tennis family. His father is a table tennis coach, and his mother played for China in the 1995 World Team Championships. (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)

2017年10月9日「モバイル英語学習」第420号(英語のエッセイ):Enjoy It While You Can

Today is Sports Day. It used to fall on October 10 until the “Happy Monday” system began in 2000, but it has been on a Monday every year since then. The weather today is supposed to be good almost everywhere in Japan, so go outside and get some exercise. Play a sport or go for a hike in the mountains. Ride your bicycle along a river. Go for a walk in a park and enjoy watching the other people there. This weather isn’t going to last forever. Soon it will get colder, and you will want to stay inside most of the time. Go out and enjoy it now while you can. (Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
