It is my great pleasure to express my greetings for all the members of BJA.
The Olympic summer games of 1964 were held in Tokyo from 10 to 24 Oc-tober in that year and were in many aspects remarkable.
They took place against the fascinating, yet geopolitically turbulent background of the sixties of the previous century and were the first summer games to be held in an Asian country. Ever since superlatives have not been spared to describe how these games symbolized the re-emergence of Japan on the world stage, less than two decades after its defeat in WW II. However one should not forget that these summer games were in the first place a great sports event with outstanding sportive achievements, the first ever to be broadcasted via satellite.
