What do you think is the charm of track and field and high jump?

When I jump to great heights, I experience a sensation akin to being momentarily free of gravity. I really like the sense and feeling I get then. 

That's the biggest charm. 

To prevent injury during training or competition. Do you have your own know-how?

During training sessions, if you're feeling unwell, it's possible to opt for a massage or take some rest. However, when it comes to actual games, I don't want to be preoccupied with the fear of getting injured. It's important for me to demonstrate my full potential, giving it my all. Simply being cautious doesn't guarantee immunity from injuries.

The game that I watched during the Olympics. Please tell me if there is a player you see as a role model.

The winning player from Qatar serves as my role model. As a young observer, I was captivated by the impressive jumps performed by athletes. This fascination led me to become a devoted fan, even adopting some of their training routines.

He kept winning other competitions, but it didn't work out especially at the Olympics. I was really disappointed as a fan, but I was happy to win the gold medal this time. 

The triple jump (a track and field jump that stomps three times). You also participated in the relay (4x100m Relay). Was there any background or special reason for participation? 

I participated in the relay to make memories with my friends in middle school. I participated in the triple jump because the professor recommended it, but I actually liked it. 

I think it's one of the coolest track and field events. But I couldn't do it actively because it was an event with a risk of injury. I didn't learn it professionally. Thats a bummer, so if I have a chance next time, I want to prepare properly and participate. 

The most memorable moment as a high jumper. Please tell us about an episode!

When an individual becomes fully engrossed in an activity, they can instantaneously lose their sense of memory. I had such an experience back in high school when I achieved my personal best record. I have no recollection of how I ran or the specific actions I took during that moment. Since then, I haven't encountered that same sensation again.

What are your strengths and weaknesses as a player?

During the game, my focus remains solely on myself, disregarding the presence of other players. I believe this level of self-centeredness is a strength, as the mental aspect is crucial for any player.

However, when I experience nervousness or when my performance is subpar, I struggle to regain my composure and return to my normal state. It is a shame that I have developed a habit of letting go of the game under such circumstances.

Please tell us an honest review after wearing Wavewear.

I appreciated how the Knee Guards K2 provided strong support to my muscles. I distinctly felt the tape effect, which significantly contributed to injury prevention.

Tell us about your future goals!

There are a lot of physical and technological deficiencies. I'm okay with my mentality, but I'm trying to improve it because I'm upset about it.

Actually, I didn't set a record goal. If I surpass my limit, I think I can make an even better record. I want to be a person who consistently overcomes himself.
