Thank you for your support.
We participated in the Japan National Championships for athletes with intellectual disabilities, which served as a pep rally for the Japanese representatives to the Tokyo Paralympics.
100m Butterfly 1:03.71 2nd
4*100m49ptMix Free Relay Exhibition Disqualified due to handover violation
During the competition, I was awarded a certificate of participation in the Tokyo Paralympics, and I was officially appointed as an athlete with an unofficial participation offer. It was a sobering experience for me.
First of all, in the butterfly event, I had contact with the course rope when I was floating up from the start, so I was not able to set the record I wanted. However, I was able to discover my next challenge based on the data of my swim, and it was a race that will lead me to the next step.
As for the relay, it seems that there was a mistake in the handover during the race. I plan to be the first swimmer in the race, but I will improve my teamwork and prepare a system that will allow me to demonstrate my abilities without mistakes.
There is not much time left before the Paralympic Games, but I would like to work hard at each practice.
Next, I will participate in the Para World Series in Germany. It will be my first international competition in about two years, and I hope to regain my racing skills and improve for the Paralympics.
I would like to ask for your continued support.
