Participated in the CITI World Series Singapore 2024

The World Series competition was held in Singapore from 17-19 May.


  • 100m freestyle 58.73 1st
  • 400m freestyle 4:35.20 1st
  • 100m butterfly 1:02.94 2nd

After a two-week adjustment period since the Japan Para Games, I competed in my last international competition before the Paris Paralympics. I swam good times in all events, which confirmed the results of my training, and I am a little relieved. I was particularly gutted in the 100 m butterfly, as it was the first time since 2019 that I had swum under 2 seconds. Due to the multi-disability point system of the event, I lost to a Korean swimmer in S14 and finished second, but it is a result that gives me a lot of confidence.

The Singapore Games is the only World Series event in Asia. Asia lags behind Europe and the US in the development of para-sport, but at this Games I was able to witness the hard work of young athletes from developing countries who have yet to make their mark at the Paralympics and World Championships. I hope that more para-athletes will grow up all over the world in the future. Reverse education was also actively conducted at the Games, with invited children filling the stands during the daytime qualifiers. I was happy to feel that we are also contributing to the promotion of social inclusion, which is one of the parasports’ purposes.

From now on, we will be training again for Yokohama in July. I will do my best.

Thank you very much. Please continue to support the Tomita Universe.
