comment Is there a specific time to pronounce 日本, にほん/にっぽん?
Well, shame on me. If I remember correctly I heard this from one of my Japanese teacher when I was in University, but as I couldn't find anything to back it up, I updated my answer to be clear that this part is unsure (so wrong until proven true).

Yes, here again it's a context when we 'root for' Japan. But it's true such rooting aren't only for competition events as I said in my reply, you're right to note にっぽん can be used in any context we cheer for 'Japan' in any challenge (be it a competition, or in your case a challenge for reconstruction).
