“Two years without a win is a long time or a short time? Or is it short and long? I don’t know, hahaha. I don’t know, but the tears reminded me of many things.
Hinako Shibuno (22) cried after her first win in two years at the Stanley Ladies held until October 10. After playing, she told the press with a big smile on her face. The “Shibuko smile” returned after a long absence. “She must have been overjoyed to be back on the court after such a long time.
It was in January of this year that I caught Shibuno’s first passionate love.
Sitting in the back seat of a one-box car, Shibuno was heading for a quiet residential area in Tokyo. After driving for a while, the car stopped at a parking lot in front of a certain apartment building. At the entrance to the apartment, he sees a man in loungewear. It was TV Tokyo announcer Kasuga Nozawa, 31, whom Shibuno had a crush on.
“The first time we met was on a sports talk show that Shibuno appeared on in January 2008. Nozawa was the facilitator. It seems that Shibuno became more attracted to Nozawa as they went out to dinner together after their performance on the show. After that, they started to date alone and started dating last fall.
Female athletes have a tough look on their faces when they are playing, which wears out their bodies and minds. However, when they leave the arena, another side of their faces can be seen. They are not the same as athletes who are fighting on the edge of their lives, but their attractive side can be seen. We hope you can feel the aura of these women in these treasured photos.

An athlete and a veteran celebrity. Why do two people who seem to have no connection at all have such a close relationship?
They met through an acquaintance around July of 2007,” said Nabe-san. Mr. Nabe-san has been telling people that he can heal people’s illnesses by holding his hands over them. Perhaps he heard the rumor and was introduced to Mr. Ikegami.
For more information on Nabe’s “hand-holding therapy,” please refer to his book, “Showa no Kaibutsu: Ura Mo Omote Mo Showbiz. In his book, “Showa no Kaibutsu: Ura mo Omote no Showbiz Sekai,” he describes how he helped Sadaharu Oh, the chairman of the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks, recover from cancer by “holding his hand” over the affected area.
“When Ike was in the hospital, Nabe-san went to her hospital room and ‘treated’ her. After she was released from the hospital in Obon, she visited Nabe-san several times a week to receive treatment.
Around 5:00 p.m., the group went to an Italian restaurant near the station. They must have had a good time talking. They came out of the restaurant more than three hours later, after 8 p.m.

This magazine has also suppressed valuable photos of past Olympic athletes.
In November 2008, we reported on a romantic date between London Olympic silver medalist Ai Fukuhara (32) and Rio Olympic bronze medalist Kei Nishikori (31).

“Ai’s private life was going well, but her performance in international competitions was not so good at the time. When she returned to Japan in December, she was asked by the press about her relationship with Nishikori, she stiffened her face and bowed deeply, saying, ‘I’m really sorry about this. (Sports journalist)
Before she knew it, Fukuhara and Nishikori had broken up. After that, Fukuhara got back on track and married Taiwanese national team player Jiang Hongjie, but announced their divorce in July this year. She appeared on TV as a commentator for the Tokyo Olympics.
In a direct interview, she said, “I’m not hiding it.

However, the relationship between the two was much closer than a professional one. This magazine caught the two of them staying at a luxury hotel, and interviewed Q-chan directly at …….
“We started dating in late 2009. I’m not trying to hide it. I just don’t get asked about it.
Q-chan was unfazed by the direct hit and showed her white teeth. The two have continued their relationship since then and are still living together.
Not only do they set records, but they also remain in people’s memories. That is the way of life of a top athlete.
