University students attended the Swiss team. Their intensive support helped the team to concentrate on their training — such as preparing ice baths just after the training or support transportation. In addition, they organized the Tokyo tour with the Swiss team. The Swiss team was able to enjoy both traditional and modern aspects of Tokyo by visiting Asakusa (the traditional area) and Ginza (the modern area).
