For Japan's Ageing Soccer Players, 80 is the New 50
Nomura’s story is an inspiration to seniors everywhere, showing that age is just a number when it comes to pursuing one’s passions. In a society that often overlooks and undervalues older individuals, Nomura and his teammates are a testament to the power of staying active and engaged. It’s heartening to see initiatives like the SFL 80 League encouraging seniors to continue playing sports, promoting not only physical health but also social connection and a sense of purpose. It’s a reminder that there’s no age limit to living a fulfilling life.
