Thousands Celebrate Aoyama Gakuin University's Hakone Ekiden Course Record Win

Thousands of fans and members of the media gathered outside Goucher Memorial Chapel at Aoyama Gakuin University on Jan. 8 to celebrate Aoyama Gakuin's first-ever win at the Jan. 2-3 Hakone Ekiden.  All ten members of the team appeared on the steps of the chapel along with head coach Susumu Hara and other members of the team's staff, each taking a turn speaking to the crowd and thanking the fans before joining them for pictures.  At the end of the celebration the team posed for a group photo together with the entire crowd.
