In consideration of the younger schoolchildren who would be tuning in to watch the event, the day's proceedings were conducted in both English and Japanese. The event began with a congratulatory message from the children to Coombs for winning a bronze medal, followed by a quiz that viewers could take part in on topics like Coombs's favorite Japanese food. All participants then joined in practicing Coombs's regular exercise program, and the event concluded with a Q&A and speech from the Keio Yokohama Elementary School Director, Naohiko Kohtake. During the quiz, Coombs introduced his native county of Devon and encouraged all present to visit one day. Coombs showed off his medals and politely answered a variety of questions, including how to deal with nerves, get back up when feeling down, and what he would like students to know about parasports in the world today. When asked about what they can do about discrimination against people with disabilities, he said that he wants more children to know that it is important to recognize that all people, not just those with disabilities, are different and that he hopes we can recognize these differences and accept one another.
The event was held at night to accommodate the time difference. Even then, in addition to the students who were scheduled to ask Coombs questions, more than 400 students from Keio Yokohama Elementary School tuned in, resulting in an incredible event that facilitated an increased interest for a large number of students in cultural exchange that overcomes national borders.
