116 soccer lovers from many countries gathered in the rain for our tournament on June 26. 8 teams competed with the enthusiasm and excitement of the World Cup. The victors were the Fermentation Team; Second Place was Team Vietnam, and Third Places were Team Inner Mongolia and Team China. Everybody was covered with mud, and the fun everyone had playing together without national borders will surely become a happy memory of their student days in Kyoto University. Fot the Japanese students too. I think it was a good chance for true internatioanl exchange. Next year will be our tenth tournament. Look forward to it!
