Namban Rengo teams dominated the January 18 Shibuya Ekiden capturing first place all of the adult divisions. Not only did Namban dominate the podium, we managed to stay out of trouble with the Shibuya race officials! In recent years we had drawn some attention for the wrong reasons, missing team calls and making a poor showing at the award ceremony. But this time, “Thanks to everyone’s cooperation, we didn’t get any complaint from the organizer! Such a big relief. We made it! ” exclaimed a surprised and ecstatic Mika Tokairin after the event.
