She is a football player and after the 2011 FIFA World Cup, she tried to be a team captain of Nadeshiko ,and she took part in the London Olympics as a team captain.
Her skill is so great ,so she is admired by all over the world ;however,not only for her skills but also her personality. She is really strict on herself ;in addition, she is quite considerate.
First of all, she was a good captain. After the Nadesiko’s manager asked her to be team captain, she thought what she could make a good team. Moreover, she created to an ideal team. At the Beijing Olympics, Homare Sawa was team captain ,then they were unified ;thus, she wanted the team to become a similar team.
However, she actually was strict but she didn’t stop believing in her team mates.
I think that such actions as this contributed to create a good team and achieve a second place.
Secondly, she was a hard worker.
When she became team captain, she tried to practice hard more and more. She was really strict on herself ;consequently, she was a stickler for winning ;also her team mates knew. And she was of a cheerful disposition. If the atmosphere was gloomy, she could change it to high spirited, so she practiced hard to win but she didn’t focus on herself so she always paid attention to her team mates.
Another thing that impresses me is she was trusted by her team mates. During the FIFA World Cup, they defeated the American team so they were glad but Ogimi was crying because she was not a starting member. Then, Ogimi thought that she was not needed in this team. But Aya supported her and said “You are so important for me and this team.” to Ogimi. In London Olympics, after they lost, she was crying and could not stand up. Then, Ogimi ran up to her and supported her. So Ogimi helped because she trusted her and after, all the other members ran up.
In conclusion, she is a great football player and a great person. I think that if she was not a captain, the Japan team could not achieve second place. She always believes in her team mates and they trust her, so teamwork is strong. Her perseverance and feelings were conveyed to her team mates and they were unified. I learned a lot of things and I will always respect her.
