Japan on top of the medal table in Paris

It becomes a habit, when the Japanese team is announced, it is a safe bet that we will see them reach peaks. With 5 titles and 15 medals for 23 entries, we can speak of great success, despite the early defeat of Abe Hifumi, who skidded twice against the Italian Manuel Lombardo in the first round of the competition.

Nothing very serious for the Japanese prodigy, but a warning shot that will have to be taken into account, while Japan is able to offer several world-class athletes in each category. We can also note that out of 12 women entered in the tournament, only one (Endo Hiromi) did not get on the podium.

Japan really has an incredible margin compared to other nations and can afford at the Düsseldorf Grand Slam to propose an A team again, but that will be different from the one aligned in Paris.
