Massu promises to make wish come true for world champion athlete if she wins in London
A two-time Olympic gold medalist and nine-time world champion wrestler said she would love to get a hug from Takahisa Masuda from NEWS / Tegomass if she wins again in London, and the Johnny’s talent said he would make it happen, reports MyNavi News.
Saori Yoshida had been a guest on the music show “1番ソングSHOW (Ichiban Song Show)” on July 25 and said she always listens to the song “ぼくらの空 (Bokura no Sora)” by Tegomass before a match. The athlete had said she listens to the song before going onto the wrestling platform alone, and it motivates her to think, “Yes! I can spread my wings and fly!”.
It has been reported a special video message was prepared for Yoshida by her favorite member, Massu.
In the video, Masuda had first off said he was happy Yoshida had chosen him over his Tegomass partner Yuya Tegoshi, and then wished her the best in London.
“I hope you can get that gold medal at the Olympics in London. Good luck.”
Then, when a staff member asked Masuda whether he would make any wish Yoshida had come true if she does win the gold medal, he answered the question with a definite yes.
“I’d love a hug. I’ll make sure I win,” Yoshida commented after watching the video.
While this might make a number of Tegomass fans jealous, hopefully they will be forgiving this time. An athlete who is representing her country is getting the support and motivation she needs to get ready for her medal match from Masuda’s singing. No musician could ask for anything better than that. So, hopefully Tegomass fans will welcome Yoshida back to Japan with a big smile.
Good luck Saori Yoshida!!! – Momo
