Two Okinawans will participate in the tennis competition at the Tokyo Paralympics, which kicks off on Aug. 23 — one as an umpire and the other as a staffer who strings athletes’ rackets.

Kazuki Omine, 54, chairman of the Okinawa prefectural tennis association’s umpire committee, will serve as a line umpire for wheelchair tennis games. Masaki Tokumura, 48, who works at a local tennis store, is the official stringer for the Tokyo Games tennis tournament.
