☆ brilliant 素晴らしい
In sport, a play or performance, or person that is brilliant is extremely clever or skillful. You could say something like, “Nagatomo is a brilliant soccer player.” Or, “Did you see that serve? It was brilliant!” Or, “She deserved to win after such a brilliant performance.”
These days, my kids love watching YouTube videos of other people performing soccer skills. Some of the people are brilliant, and yet they look like ordinary people, as opposed to professional athletes. There are even videos of young kids doing brilliant tricks with the soccer ball. It’s amazing to watch. I wonder if people are getting more and more skillful because of the Internet motivating them to try new tricks to upload!
