It's campaigning time again! The upcoming (June 25th) election is interesting, with Olympic judo silver medalist, Noriko Mizoguchi, challenging the incumbant, Heita Kawakatsu. Kawakatsu, 68, is seeking his third term. Mizoguchi, 45, won the silver medal in the women's 52-kilogram division at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. She was a professor at Shizuoka University of Art and Culture and coached France's national judo team in the past. Mizoguchi wants to give back to her community by changing prefectural politics, while Kawakatsu is empahazing his achievements during his two terms, such as the addition of Mt. Fuji to UNESCO's World Heritage list and securing the cycling events of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics for the prefecture. I wonder who will win!
