- My Favorites:
I took up triathlon at the age of 9 years at my mother’s suggestion. As a 2013 Youth Olympic Gold Medalist, I was the final presenter in Tokyo’s bid presentation for the 2020 Olympic/Paralympic Games. At the 2016 Rio Olympics, I placed 15th, the highest-placed Japanese athlete in the triathlon event. Currently I am competing in various competitions with my training based in Yamanashi.
