Also, when I heard about the heat of concern at the Tokyo Games, I smiled and said, “It is said that you can jump far away because it is easy to generate updraft when it ’s hot”.
And “For athletes, the heat is difficult to perform, but there were a lot of record updates even in competitions in hotter countries. I wanted to do it, "and expressed the idea that there would be no problem if it was adjusted according to the weather of the day.
Rame hopes to participate in the Olympics, but the Rio de Janeiro Olympics has given up and has shown that the Tokyo Olympics are difficult to participate.
Laem said, “Even if I do n’t get a medal, I want to participate in the Olympics because I want to show everyone that paraathletes can be accomplished. I want to show that it ’s not true. ”
And, for the Tokyo Paralympic Games, which started the application for lottery sales of spectator tickets, “I want to show amazing athletes' competition at the venue filled with spectators and win a world record update and a gold medal” I want people to come, so I ’d like you to apply for tickets now. ”
