Jun Mizutani: A Father Already!

Jun Mizutani: A Father Already!
Spread the love for Table Tennis!

Jun Mizutani does not just play a big role in the Japanese National Team but he also plays as a father to his new born daughter. Following his participation in the recently concluded Asian Games where his team took the bronze, Mizutani posted on his personal blog a photo of his inspiration, also announcing a different life he now lives. 

Sina Sports. At age 25, Japanese Team's main player Jun Mizutani is already a proud daddy to his first born daughter. 

At the start of this month, just after the 2014 Asian Games has ended, Jun Mizutani returned to Japan in a good mood. That is despite the fact that he only had a bronze medal from the Men's Team event. 

Mizutani didn't get any medal in the Singles after he lost against the host player Joo Saehyuk in the quarterfinals (2-4). 

The reason for his good mood was that he already has a family waiting for him at home. In his personal blog, he wrote: "This is already a bit late. This is my daughter. She is always my cure." Along with the post were two photos of his first-born daughter. 

Unknown to many of us, Jun Mizutani was married to his long-time girlfriend last year, November 22. 

This came off a bit surprising for some. Netizens commented: "So Jun Mizutani already has a child but he is just 25 years old." "Asian athletes settling down and having children at an early age is really rare."  

Just last weekend, Jun Mizutani and his Russian Club, UMMC, won its third straight victory in the European Champions League. They are currently undefeated and is leading in the rankings so far.
