Special Honor to Nadeshiko

The Japanese government presented the country's national women's soccer team with the People's Honor Award for their historic victory in the Women's World Cup final last month.

"You have shown the world how great Japanese women are and provided people in quake-hit areas, and all Japanese people, with courage and inspiration to cope with difficulties," Prime Minister Naoto Kan said as he handed out the award to the squad at his office.

I really hope that Nadeshiko will win a gold medal at next year's London Olympics.
