With little international presence, Inami said the Olympics had been a"dream stage" and that she was having fun."Being able to come to the Olympics is a bigger thing to me than golfing. This is an honour in my life. "This isn't something that you can easily take part in, so I don't want to have any regrets," she said." Inami, a seven-time winner on the Japan LPGA Tour, said the Olympics was a dream stage and hoped Japanese children would follow their dreams after watching her play.

She fought really well around so many different types of athletes for four days even though she didn't have enough international experience," "I am so happy," Hattori said in tears. A stunning goal from Hardik Singh in the last moments came after some nail-biting moments.
