I participated in the Para World Series held in Berlin, Germany. It was my first international competition in about two years, and I was happy to have this precious opportunity to compete with my rivals from all over the world. The results were not as good as I had hoped, but I was able to see signs of recovery in butterfly in the second half of the competition, which was a big gain for me.
Through this race, I was able to reaffirm how gratifying and enjoyable it is to swim in a big event and to compete with athletes from all over the world. I will cherish this energy that has come to me and work hard to strengthen myself for the last time before the Paralympics.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the staff and tournament officials who contributed to the expedition. Thank you very much.
I would also like to thank all of you who supported me through SNS in real time while watching the broadcast from Japan. Thank you very much.
