Colan Totte Co., Ltd.
On November 1, 2018, Colan Totte Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Osaka, Japan; CEO: Katsumi Komatsu), manufacturer and distributor of the Colantotte brand of magnetic health gear, concluded an advisory contract with Noriaki Kasai (member of Tsuchiya Home), holder of five Guinness World Records for feats such as being the oldest ski jumper to win the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup, as well as having participated the most times in the ski jump category of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.
Noriaki Kasai was born on June 6, 1972 in Shimokawa, Hokkaido. He is both a member and manager of the Tsuchiya Home Ski Club. He has had an extraordinary career as a ski jumper spanning over 30 years, and despite being over 40 years of age, his illustrious achievements have earned him the nickname “Legend.” Going forward, as he continues to race toward ever greater heights -- such as continuing to break records as the oldest ski jumper -- Colan Totte will be there, giving him its full support.
