We believe that athletes who continue to pursue their dreams give hope and courage to all those who will create a brighter future for Japan.
KONAMI strives to contribute to the development of sports, so that their inspiration may touch the lives of ever more people.
It is the goal of the Konami Sports Gymnastics and Swimming Teams not only to produce world-class athletes, but also to promote the healthy growth of mind and body of every team member.
Our athletes take part in various events held at Konami Sports Club facilities around Japan, including exercise classes, swim meets and others, with the goal of spreading the joy of exercise to people of all ages.
In addition to improving their competitive abilities, the Konami Sports Gymnastics and Swimming Teams will continue to contribute to the growth and development of sports through this wide array of activities.
The Konami Group continues to support swimmers who will spearhead the future of Japanese swimming, through holding the "KONAMI OPEN Competitive Swim Meet" (officially recognized by the Japan Swimming Federation), an annual swim meet that allows swimmers of all ages to compete at the same venue - from elementary school children to the athletes who represent Japan on the world stage.
"Junior Finals" are offered at this tournament to nurture junior swimmers to compete internationally. Elementary, junior high, and high school students are also offered with the opportunity to be active in their respective age groups.
By competing against the world's leading swimmers, junior swimmers who will bear the future have set numerous outstanding records including new national records for "Gakudo" (ES students and under) and "Gakusei" (MS, HS, and College students).
The Konami Group will strive to develop and expand new generations of competitive swimmers in Japan, by providing them with opportunities for challenge, growth and interaction.
