PAPERBACK. The true story of Katsuyuki Kiyomiya's miraculous five years (2001-06) coaching Japan's top university rugby team, written by the coach himself as the bestselling Kyuukyoku no Shouri (pubd. Feb. 2006), translated into English by Ian Ruxton. Kiyomiya's record over five years is outstanding: Played 70, Won 62, Drawn 1, Lost 7 with wins over Toyota Verblitz, NZU, Oxford and Cambridge. Tipped as a probable future coach of Japan, in March 2006 he became the highly successful full-time head coach of Suntory Sungoliath in Japan's Top League. The tragic sub-plot is the murder in Iraq in 2003 of rugby player-diplomat Katsuhiko Oku, who invented the ULTIMATE CRUSH slogan. Mr. Kiyomiya created the Oku-Inoue Fund for the children of Iraq to honour him. Currently available only from lulu.com. Hardcover. Preview a --a --a "a a .
