Kenji Fukuoka, who contributed to Japan's breakthrough last year's Rugby World Cup, gave up on his next goal of participating in the Tokyo Olympics. As the competition is postponed for one year, we will give priority to advancing to a university with a medical department from next year in order to become an aspiring doctor from school days.
27-year-old Fukuoka player has the speed of running 50 meters in 5 seconds, and took four tries in total at the World Cup held in Japan last year, contributing to Japan's first ever Best Eight advancement. ..
After the World Cup, with the goal of participating in the Tokyo Olympics as the next goal, we announced in January that we will concentrate on seven-person rugby, but the event was postponed for one year due to the influence of the new coronavirus.
Under these circumstances, it was revealed through interviews with related people that Fukuoka players gave up on participating in the Tokyo Olympics.
In order to become an aspiring doctor since I was a student, I would like to give priority to going to a university with a medical department next year.
Fukuoka will hold a press conference on the 14th to explain the circumstances leading up to the abandonment of the Olympic Games and future plans.
