Aisin AW’s HR employee Rio Watari selected for wrestling in Rio Olympics

Finalist at the 2016 Olympic Wrestling Asian Qualification Tournament in Kazakhstan in March, Rio Watari (24) has been selected by the Japan Wrestling Federation to compete at the Rio Olympic Games in the Wrestling Women Freestyle -75kg category and will take part in the elimination round next Thursday, August 18th.

On our parent company’s website, Rio expresses her thanks for the support she has been endowed with by her colleagues and said she will go to get the best results in the competition after training very hard every day.

Beyond her modesty we know Rio’s secret wish is to get Gold from Rio to her home town in Aichi Prefecture.

We congratulate her on her selection and wish her to achieve the best result in this wonderful competition together with the other 6 female freestyle wrestlers of the Japanese team!
