The 12 newly-added council candidates include Olympic marathon gold medalist Naoko Takahashi, Paryun alpine skiing gold medalist Ohikakata Kuniko and other women. The original East Olympic Organizing Committee has 33 directors, of which 7 are women. After 12 new women are added, The number of female directors increased to 19, which will account for about 42% of the total. This will achieve the goal that Seiko Hashimoto expected.
