Para swimming in autism with intellectual disability for 2 years
Naohide Yamaguchi, an intellectual disability class, is 18 years old from Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture. I was diagnosed with autism with intellectual disability when I attended a nursery school.
I started swimming when I was a 4th grader, but I started full-scale para swimming only 2 years ago. It was a dynamic swim with a height of 1 meter 87 cm and flexibility around the scapula. I have continued to grow and I have entered this tournament as a third-class Japanese record holder such as a 100 meter breaststroke.
Because of the effects of disability, things suddenly become uncontrollable, so the family makes notes to organize their feelings so that they can concentrate on the competition and control their emotions.
