Through MCJ, we were able to show the underlying strength of GIS”, said Shohei Horiuchi, a member of the winning team.
Dr. Fukuoka was also thrilled with the performance “I’m very happy that their great efforts finally paid off. It is significant in that it was a ‘team’ that achieved the great results, rather than ‘individuals’. Seminar members who could not make it to the final round also supported them. I’m very proud of all my seminar students”. This sentiment was echoed by Manaki Ishimura who said “Although the result was not best, our group was able to show the best teamwork and enjoyed the competition”.
