The 13th National Japan Athletic Meet

Posted on Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 by John Wood

Each year, Japan holds a country-wide Sport festival which takes place in three stages: skating and hockey taking place in January, skiing in February, and the main tournament taking place in September/October. The above was a commemorative envelope for the weightlifting event created for the 13th edition of the National Sport Festival which began on October 19, 1958. The location of the event changes each year and the 1958 edition took place in the Toyama prefecture. Unfortunately this lifter’s name was not listed but it may be Shigeo Kogure.
