2011 OPDES Agility Japan Grand Prix Championship

Japanese agility competitors rallied through recent adversity to hold their National Championships June 3-5. Report by Tom Kula


Last weekend, Japanese competitors gathered to compete at their national agility championship for placements and a shot at winning a spot on the Japan team to come to Louisville, Kentucky for the 2011 Cynosport World Games in October. 

The weather was outstanding in their new location north of Tokyo in the ocean with Mt. Fuji in the background. Tom Kula presided as judge. The event began with a moment of prayer for those that lost their lives in the earthquake and tsunami in March. The competition was used as a charity event to raise money to send to the region.
 
Agility competitors in the United States had raised $8000 for the victims of the disaster. These funds were presented to Tanabe-san, the Director of OPDES, by Kula.  It was an emotional moment.
 
As in any agility competition, there were some very exciting runs and some disappointments. All-in-all, everyone had a great time and some new faces will be seen this year in Louisville representing Japan.  It should be very exciting!
