F5WC JAPAN 2019
Cris Yamanaka, founder of the Aruko World of Ball team.
Forwarding our youth to the future.
The process of approaching young people involved with drugs, mainly foreigners in Japan, has been a matter of concern for many people. The search for solutions and interventions has allowed educators to intervene early in the street addiction processes of children and adolescents.
Social vulnerability affects adolescents in various ways, leading to the use of illicit and licit drugs, promiscuity, theft, lack of professional qualification, low education and discrimination. Such factors are due to the absence of activities that provide alternatives to fill the idle time of these young people.
Our proposal is to offer soccer practice as a disciplinary and educational complement. The impact caused by this project initially involved 100 children and young people with access to sports, leisure, education, health and group living.
For 3 years the MDBFC has been changing and making dreams come true in the lives of many people, in 2019 we started activities in the Japanese FUT7 league and we are already leaders of the championship in the Tokai region, and this is just the beginning, we will take the our project for the WORLD.
Is that you? Are you with us in this?
So that we can continue with our project, each day we improve and expand our facilities, to better accommodate and create new units throughout Japan, we have the support of companies that think about the future of our children and young people. We currently have training centers in the cities of Kariya and Chiryu both in Aichi-Ken province.
All the money raised through sponsorship and partnerships will be used in the realization and development of the football club 'Aruko mundo da bola'. So helping with uniforms, sporting materials, events, championships, clinics, excursions, sports competitions, sports fairs and also in the dissemination of our project so that together we can have a greater reach and social impact.

Today we will tell a story of a champion on the football field and in life with 13 years old Igor Yan da Silva Brazilian born in Itu - SP, with his great effort and dedication has been highlighted in the soccer fields of Japan, his parents Michelle Cristina da Silva Ribeiro and André Kiochi Ribeiro are the great supporters and give us their files and their history.
Igor arrived in Japan with his family in March of 2012 at the time with 7 years old, surprised everyone by the rapid adaptation with the language because until then never had contact with the Japanese culture.
He was enrolled in AYANO (Ayano Elementary School) in Shiga Prefecture in the city of Koka, in the early months of school he joined the school's football team, a passion that comes from Brazil when he played on the street of the grandparents in Itu -SP, where he was born and spent the first years of his childhood at that time played in the school of Vasco da Gama.
In Japan, playing for the school team, his performance was visible because his speed, dribbling and goals began to draw attention, which stood out above the average of other children.
(below are some images from the time I played on the school team).
With 12 years old, began playing in the basic categories of Kyoto Purple Sanga, at the time also aroused the interest of a large company that takes care of athletes' careers.
Today this company directs and administers along with the parents the steps of him in this trajectory.
(below some images from the time he played in Kyoto Sanga).
With 13 years of age began playing for Mio Biwako Shiga, team in which he acts until today and is one of the highlights of the club in the category.
(Below some images acting by the current club).
Below Igor with the Brazilian father and businessmen who care for his career.
Nowadays Igor reconciles the routine of studies and training! The schedule of the club is very tight, so the day to day is pulled, however this is something he does with love because his dream is to become a professional athlete
Parents support him a lot because without that encouragement, none of this would be possible, besides of course the talent that God gave him and the daily dedication giving up many things!
Although a daily routine between studies and training and games is very rigorous and for the time that needs to be dedicated to both,
Igor reconciles the routine of studies and training because the calendar of the club is very tight.
Igor has been struggling despite his young age with an awareness of the importance of his professional future, but this is something he does with love, because he has a great dream of becoming a player in the Japanese J-League and defending the professional Japanese team in the future. since it has all the requirements for such an achievement.
The parents of Igor Michele and André realized the talent of the child and state how it is possible for a foreign child to have an opportunity to develop their talent in the sport.
"Speaking specifically of soccer, if the parents realize that the child has talent for the sport the first step is to enroll in a Japanese school, every school has a team that is registered in the JFA from then on and that they begin to play and arise the opportunities, studying in Japanese school will learn the Japanese language will be possible to communicate with trainers and the child will grow in the environment and to form an athlete and important to start from elementary school beginning to play by the school team and with that development and will opportunities to encourage parents and the dedication to take the kids training to the games on the weekends, to give up the time to take and to accompany during all the time the child is dependent, Igor now can already go by train alone but the four years between eight and twelve years, during the week the mother accompanied in the training that was far from his house and at the end of the week the father took to the games last parents had to be present to accompany the entire development phase. "
Igor is an athlete who comes over the years dedicating himself to the sport and stresses the importance of all his effort when declaring for other young people just like him:
"The key is to do what you like and run behind to realize your dreams, that's the main reason to have strength and overcome difficulties."

About 400 Olympic team members from 18 countries and territories are expected to arrive in Japan from 1st to 4th July.
Many foreign Olympic teams are arriving in Japan before the start of the Tokyo Games on July 23rd.
Japan's government has said that around 400 Olympic team members from 18 countries and territories are expected to arrive in the country from July 1st to 4th.
They will head to their pre-Games camp sites across the country after landing at Narita (Chiba), Haneda (Tokyo) or Chubu (Aichi) Airports.
On Thursday, 20 members of the US boxing team arrived in Narita. They used special lines for entry procedures without contacting other airport users, in an effort to prevent coronavirus infections.
A British sailing team has arrived in Haneda, and is expected to stay in their host city of Hayama (Kanagawa).
Japanese authorities are urged to contain virus infections using various measures, including border controls, amid the arrival of many foreign teams.
Belgium's press did not forgive Italy's 2-1 elimination last Friday, in the quarter-finals of the 2020 Euro Cup. This Saturday's newspapers highlighted the "bitter taste" of the defeat of this generation that has promised great achievements for some time. , but has not yet succeeded.
"La Denière Heure/Les Sports" headlined: "The golden generation won't win a title this year. And it might never win. This new failure will be hard to digest."
"This Italy is going to get stronger and stronger. And other teams too. The fear of being left behind definitely exists," adds the newspaper.

The newspaper "Sudpresse" recalled the eliminations of Belgium's most recent competitions: "There was the Mané Garrincha Stadium in Brasília in 2014 (when Belgium was eliminated from the World Cup by Argentina after losing 1-0), then the Pierre Mauroy stadium in 2016 (defeat 3-1 for Wales in Euro-2016). From now on, Arena Allianz will be among the cemeteries that buried the dreams of the Devils."
For "De Standaard": "After a real roller coaster of emotions, in which hopelessness and hope alternated, the 'Red Devils' couldn't (once again) live up to it. What's left after Munich is, therefore a bitter taste".
"On paper, this golden generation deserves more than a quarter-final elimination. But in practice, it's been very difficult to get that deserved award," the paper continues.
Eliete Malta Ikeda (47), professional street racing athlete, in middle and deep races (5km to 21km), with a career that gathers almost 400 podiums in Brazil, and that can now continue also in Japan.
Let's learn a little more about the history of this athlete
Tell us a little about this relationship with the sport and how it helps you?
A: I love sports, I love street racing, running relieves me of everyday stress, gives me a feeling of freedom, it also makes me forget about problems. It is also important to mention the health benefits that sport provides.
And competitions help me to have focus, commitment, determination and a sense of achievement, not only in athletics, but also in my life.
Many people in your place could give up and leave the sport aside, but with you it was the other way around. What motivates you?
A: When the problem arises, we have to solve it and not just accept it and that's it. When I have a difficulty, it seems that the will and the challenge of being able to overcome it gets even greater.
What makes me happy and motivates me are the messages I receive from people, saying that I am an inspiration for them, both in the race and in my struggle for life.
There are so many affections, that motivate me more and more to run.
How did you get started in athletics?
A: I have always practiced various sports since school, and I have always excelled in the modalities I practiced, except that I identified myself by Corrida de Rua.
My passion for running came when I studied at an elementary school in Barão Geraldo (District of the City of Campinas, interior of São Paulo) and this year I studied, the school partnered with Unicamp College, which consisted of taking students to practice swimming in the university pools.
The teacher put all the students to warm up on the athletics track that was next to the pools, and then I started running on the track, then I gradually increased the distance, jumping from block to block and going to a little forest that is on university entrance.
That's how I started running. At the time I was about 12 years old and I started to realize that it brought me several benefits, but I ran to take care of my body and health, nothing more.
What motivated you to be an athlete?
In mid-2002, she lived in the city of Sumaré, a neighboring city of Campinas in the interior of São Paulo, and was a member of CRS-Clube Recreativo Sumaré. One day the club manager saw me running through the streets and invited me to be part of the group of club runners, who often went to competition in several cities, but were a group of amateur athletes.
I came right away, and I went to participate in my first competition: the Integration Race in Campinas, one of the largest in the State, right after that it was the São Silvestre Race in SP-2002 Edition, but it was in the third competition, a race in the city of Valinhos-SP at the beginning of 2003 I got my first podium and my first trophy. From then on, the CRS club started to sponsor me, I stood out in several races in different cities, then I went through 2 great Athletics teams in SP, and I was winning more and more podiums.
Today I have almost 400 podiums on my resume and with many highlights in several competitions.
How do close people observe you?
A: As a symbol of Overcoming, a heroine, going through all the problems and getting to where I am.
In the world of sport everyone knows me as Wonder Woman, nickname acquired in the Races. And today it has become my trademark in competitions. Not only for the look, but also for overcoming my problems.
How and when did the nickname Wonder Woman come about?
A: I always ran and climbed on the podium on my head, so far so good, but it was in 2006 at the São Silvestre Race that the story began, at this time, the women's race was separate from the men's race, being the women's start at 15h and the masculine at 17h. Well, I ran my race and after I finished, I put the medal around my neck and went to accompany a friend who was not doing very well in the men's race.
During the course of the Men's Test, some people in the crowd saw me running with the men and started to say: “What are you doing there, pangaré, your test is over!”, But what they didn't imagine is that I already I had finished my race and after hearing the crowd saying that, my friend got angry, pulled the medal from my neck and started saying: “Look at her medal, she has already run the women's race and is running again in the men's race , then she will complete 30 km! ”.
The crowd started to say: “Wow! She is Wonder Woman! ”, And several other comparisons emerged: Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, Batman Woman (kkkk), but the most heard was Wonder Woman, and since then she started spreading this nickname among athletes, she went extending in my city, in the region and soon spread throughout Brazil.
People compared me to Wonder Woman, because of the physique, the style of the hair, even more using a band in the hair, both in training and in competitions and also on the podium, but I did not dress as Wonder Woman.
My husband and I met at the races, we were friends and the race brought us together.
My husband, still in love at the time, told me, since they know you as Wonder Woman, why not wear 100% Wonder Woman in the races.
It was there that he had the excellent idea of turning me into a real Wonder Woman, he himself characterized and personalized all my clothes.
The curious thing is that I only went up on the podiums with my dog Isabella, so my husband also characterized and personalized all the clothes of Isabella from Wonder Woman and she became known all over Brazil, as the "Wonder Dog" the Mascotinha do Atletismo.
So now there are 2 heroines in the races?
A: No, now there are 3! My husband and I got engaged on the podium of the Boldrini Race in Campinas in 2012, almost a year and a half later we got married and went to celebrate the Honeymoon, running the Disney Marathon in Orlando in the United States.
On the eve of the Disney Marathon, we drove almost the entire city of Orlando looking for a Wonder Woman costume to be able to run, and when we found it, I already thought that my husband turned me into Wonder Woman in fact, why not turn him into Superman? So we also looked for the Fantasy of Superman and we also found it.
And in the Marathon, we ran the party, the 42km dressed as Superheroes of the Justice League, and we also ended up becoming celebrities, because many people wanted to take pictures with us.
The race brought us together and today we are known as the Justice League Family of Racing, Wonder Woman, SuperMan and Wonder Dog.
You mentioned overcoming a problem, what was it?
When I was 11 years old, I was diagnosed with a tumor in the head. My parents were really worried at the time.
I was treated at the Hospital Boldrini de Câncer Infantil in Campinas - SP, by Dr. Silvia Brandalise, and after several consultations, analyzes and applications, I was cured of the Tumor considered benign. But every cure must be followed up for several years.
Are you also a volunteer? How did this come about?
After a few years, I had a niece who had Leukemia at the age of 5, and I helped my sister to take care of her at the same Boldrini Hospital where I had already been.
At this time, the Hospital held some parties on commemorative dates for children undergoing treatment, and I participated with my niece in some of them.
At parties, I played to amuse my niece, but I also ended up having fun with the other children who were there.
I asked my mother if she could make a little clown outfit for me to wear on the day of the party at the Hospital, and then I put the name on the character "Deca clown", because Deca is the nickname my father put on me when he was still I was a little child, this was a tribute to my parents, who fought hard for me. I ended up getting very well-known among the children at the Hospital parties, and now I also dress up as “Easter bunny”, “mama noel”, “noivinha caipira”, “caipirinha” and “Mulher Maravilha”.
After I got married, my husband also accompanies me in volunteering as Superman, and even Isabella also went to Wonder Dog, enchanting all the children.
At the hospital parties, when I tell the children's parents about my history as a former patient of Boldrini and for my cure, they are super happy and very optimistic.
Anyway, I have been a volunteer at the Hospital for 21 years, bringing joy to children undergoing treatment and I also end up having a lot of fun.
After the problem was solved, was it all joy?
Well, it wasn't like that, after 27 years, completely cured, I felt some pain on the left side of the face and I thought it was a tooth's nerve, but I found out that I had another Tumor in the sinus of the left face, in the Trigeminal Nerve . A new scare!
In 2012 I had the surgery to extract the Tumor and do the biopsy, which resulted in a Benign Tumor, but I continued to be in pain months and years later. In 2015 I consulted another doctor who analyzed the post-surgical images, ordered new tests and found that the tumor was still there and that it had not been removed, that is, the doctor who performed the surgery had deceived me saying that he had extracted the tumor .
Then, in 2015, I received the news that I have to go through another surgery to remove the same Tumor again.
I spent some time thinking and taking courage to do the surgery.
In the meantime, in the second half of 2016, I started to feel some strange things in the Competitions, I felt very short of breath, a pressure in my chest, sometimes some dizziness in the middle of the Race and when I finished competing, I went straight to the paramedics' help. in the Competitions, I stayed there until I recovered, until then I didn’t know anything that was coming, I continued competing and feeling sick, I started to suspect that I wasn’t well and that it wasn’t just an occasional malaise, because we know our body and its limitations, especially since I am a Physical Educator and have knowledge in studies of the Human Body. I went through several doctors, I did several exams and nothing came up, but only when I did the Ergospirometry Exam that accused Arrhythmia, because this exam does to exhaustion, exactly as if I was in a Competition, that is, exactly when I was feeling bad at the peak of effort.
I confess that I was scared because I didn't expect it to be an arrhythmia, because all my Heart exams were always normal, but it was the electrical part of the heart. The doctor gave 2 options: stop running or have surgery. Of course I would have the surgery, because I have almost a lifetime in athletics. In fact, now I was accumulating 2 surgeries.
When I went to a consultation at the Hospital Dante Pazzanese in São Paulo, when I left the hospital I received the news that my little dog Isabella the “Wonder Dog” died, my God, it was the worst news of my life, I was hit so badly that I passed out on In the middle of the street, when I woke up, I wanted it to be a lie, but it was true.
After this day I gave up on surgery, I just thought about dying, I was completely floorless, I was lying in bed, I didn't want to eat anymore, I wanted to die, because I lost my 4-legged little girl (tears), I was 5 days without eat and I just got up to eat, because my husband took care of me and cried seeing me in that situation and said he was not going to let me die, because Isabella wouldn't want it either, I just went back to eating, because of him who didn't let me commit any nonsense, because for me, my world no longer made sense.
After a few months of great pain and suffering, crying every day, and with the support of my husband and several people to whom I am immensely grateful, I decided to go back to the doctor to schedule the surgery, Isabella always loved to get on the podium with me and I would definitely be very happy to see me do what I like to do the most, I did the Heart surgery (Cardiac Ablation) first in the middle of 2017 and after 1 month I went back to the Competitions and the Boldrini Race, I just didn't go up at the Podium, because, incredible as it may seem, I missed the course, because I was very touched by my return, already in all the following events I got Podium.
In 2018, I was again at the operating table for the removal of Tumor in the Sinus of the Face, now by another doctor and by another method. The surgery was a success and the doctor assured me by showing in the images that the problem has now been solved.
But I don't have the courage to tell the parents of the children at the Boldrini Hospital about this tumor, so as not to take away the children's hopes of a cure, even if it has nothing to do with the Tumor I had as a child.
Homenagem pra Wonder Dog's photo Isabella.
How much extreme adventure, and now everything is ok?
Well, after Heart surgery, I returned to feeling some symptoms I was feeling before, but at a lesser intensity, according to the doctors, he has no more arrhythmia, but he is still under investigation to know what may be causing this.
Even so, I still manage to get a podium in competitions.
And one of the most significant tests I did in these conditions, was the “Wonder Woman Race” by DC Comics in São Paulo, running with a device called Holter (recording 24 hours of continuous heart rate), to analyze the record of any problem in the effort at the pace of competition, all filled with wires and electrodes stuck to the points of the Heart. I felt that malaise, so I slowed down a bit to recover and started to accelerate again, I managed this at the limit several times to stay competitive and managed to get the podium coming in 3rd. place in the overall women's classification. I cried, I cried, I cried with Emotion on the podium, because I dedicated the victory and the trophy to Isabella (Wonder Dog).
And Japan? When did you get here?
In 2019, already with some planning, we came to Japan and in the same year I participated in the first Race in Japan in the “Toda Marathon” in Saitama and I was Vice-Champion General of Women in the 5km Race. The structure of Races and Events in Japan is quite different compared to Brazil, and I still need to adapt to these differences.
We entered 2020, and soon the first cases of COVID-19 appear. As a precaution, they suspend all types of sporting events and also the biggest one, the Tokyo Olympics. Due to the pandemic, sport competitions have not yet been released, with the exception of rare, controlled and limited competitions.
What are your goals here in Japan?
With a little over a year here, I realized that Japan is an amazing country, well organized and with a lot of respect for others. The sporting spirit is present in people and spread across different sports. Due to the efforts of everyone, city halls, institutions, companies, and people in general of different ages, there are several places, parks, gyms, streets, bike paths available and well preserved for anyone who wants to practice the sport they want.
I intend to continue my work in the sports field by giving classes here in Japan, passing on all my knowledge acquired over the years in my sports career, exercising my training as a Physical Educator and making a difference in the health and well being of an entire population.
I also intend to continue competing professionally in Race events, adapting myself to the style of Japan and leaving in search of sponsorships and consequently in search of podiums, dedicating, of course, the victories always for Wonder Dog Isabella.
I also want to continue my volunteering work, there are more than 21 years dedicating children, with a lot of Love and Joy, taking fun, Motivation and Hope for Healing, being an Ex-patient twice cured
What kind of message can you leave for other people who have not yet managed to dedicate themselves body and soul to a sport.
A: Everyone has the ability to overcome and achieve their goals, just start and dedicate yourself. One step at a time. And when you least expect it, the sport is already part of you.
Sport brings joy and happiness, develops internal strength and creates within everyone a feeling that we can overcome the greatest adversities of our lives, in the same way that we overcome every kilometer traveled in races. Sport cures all ills, both physical, mental and emotional.
PS: We are the Super Heroes Wonder Woman and Superman of Brazil, now we are also from Japan, our two houses that we love, always saving the world with our super powers of sedentarism, motivating and bringing joys
