☆  visionary 先見の明がある


A visionary is someone who has strong, original ideas about how things could be different in the future, in particular, about how things might be improved. I’m not sure who you could describe as visionary in the topic of sports… Do you?

I think the people who originally thought of the game or sport, and the rule makers would definitely have to be considered visionary. But, how about the athletes themselves? Is there anyone in Japan that comes to mind, that you feel is a visionary?

In commonwealth countries, cricket is very popular. The game of cricket has not really changed, but there have been new styles of games – in particular shorter versions – that have led to an increase in popularity of cricket in Australia. Whoever thought of those versions could definitely be described as visionary!
