Proudly Displaying Keio’s Support for Team GB at Hiyoshi: GO GB
July 11, 2019
Team GB athletes competing in a variety of events for gymnastics and swimming are participating in a training camp partially held at Keio University’s Hiyoshi Campus in the first half of July 2019. To cheer on the athletes and show Keio’s support for Team GB as a host of the British Olympic Association’s (BOA) Tokyo 2020 preparation camp, the university has put up banners displaying the "GO GB 2020" slogan of the Friends of Great Britain—Keio University, Kawasaki City, and Yokohama City—across the facilities in use for training sessions. This includes the entrance hall to the Kyoseikan Collaboration Complex and the swimming pool on the first basement floor, the Hiyoshi Athletics Field and Athletics Field Annex, and the Mamushidani Gymnasium. British Gymnastics has also been posting photos and videos of their athletes’ stay in Japan on their official Twitter account, including images from Keio.
