The team members and their supervisor visited the Office of President and reported their victory to President Hisataka Moriwaki on August 23, 2017. One of the students spoke about his impressions about the competition as follows; "Before the competition, it took 12 minutes and 30 seconds in assembling all pieces together, but after many trials and errors, it took only 5 minutes and 48 seconds in the competition. President Moriwaki congratulated them on the winning and said, "Creating a real bridge model must be a tough, but rewarding experience for all. Please hand down the "most beautiful bridge in Asia" technique to your juniors. I hope Gifu University student team keeps on joining the competition from next year onward.
