|More about MIZUTORI Hisashi:|
|In Athens 2004, He was part of the Japanese team that brought the Olmpic title to Japan 28 years after Montreal 76 !
He started gymnastics under the influence of his older sister. He has a sister and a brother. His brother does gymnastics and his mother used to do gymnastics, too.
His movement is very keen and beautiful, so each of his elements always attracts people's attention. He has talent for gymnastics and the physical ability to try a "triple back" dismount on parallel bars. Even though he had good potential, he could not get good results because he made many mistakes in big competitions.
In 2002, he won the first national title on floor at the national championships, and it made him confident. In 2003, he made the Universiade team, and placed second in the all-around final at the national championships even though he qualified for the final at 27th place!
In 2004, he took part in the test event for the Olympics in Athens. Due to a foot injury, he did not perform on some events, but he placed second on parallel bars in the apparatus finals. He qualified for the NHK Cup at the Olympics Secondary Trials way back in thirteenth place, but he hit his routines at the NHK Cup and finished seventh in the all-around. According to the point system of the new selection procedure, which gives priority to the specialists on floor and vault (those events are always the weak events for Japan), he got points for not only his favorite events, floor and parallel bars, but also for horizontal bar. Finally he beat Sano and Nakase by a one point margin and qualified for the Olympics.
