Saori Kimura

“Japan experienced a huge disaster (this year) & there’s many people suffering. We lost so many lives so we have to do something for these victims. What we can do is to play the best volleyball to give them hope.” -Saori Kimura.

Her words truly define her as an FIVB Hero.

(Note: It appears that there’s an error with the subtitle. We’re not sure which “gold medal” Japan won last year. Saori and Japan won the bronze at the 2010 World Championship.)

    The subtitle is not correct. She doesn’t say they won the gold medal. What she really says is that Team Japan won the bronze medal last year, and the team has been making effort to step on the higher podium, eventually to win the gold. Just a piece of information for those who wondering why. Cheers.

    Next year the Olympic Games will take place in London, different country, different climate, not Japan and their neighborhood. Then we will see the truth that how great or bad Kimura and her teamates is. Now we can’t say anything while Japan is the host of many, many tournaments.

      I don’t know why Kimura always smiles too much, much more than her teamates! Is it true or is it just artificial?

      • Ace says:

        Saori is always smiling since she started playing for Japan. I dont think it’s artificial. It’s her nature to be always smiling.

        • Michael Neveda says:

          I know, but she smiles too much than normal, much more than her teamates! Smiling is the unique of Japan’s volleyball, but I don’t see any Japanese player smiles as much as Kimura! I don’t know, but lots of volleyball lovers say Kimura’s smile is artificial, lots of, but not me, although I don’t like Kimura!

          • chomchom says:

            OMG! Artificial? Can u make an artificial smile in every match u join, months to months, years to years? They need to think more than twice before speaking at such random!

          • Awang says:

            there is nothing wrong with smiling during or outside game, it doesn’t matter with fake or sincere smile, it is just a smile, it can be a way to calm or make positive thinking during a game
