Kenki Fukuoka, who was active in the Rugby World Cup last year, gave up the Tokyo Olympics, which was postponed for one year due to the new coronavirus, and decided to aim for a doctor. I want to get through the decisions I made in my life."
The 27-year-old Fukuoka player took advantage of his speed and took a total of four tries at the World Cup held last year in Japan, contributing to Japan's first ever advance to the best eight.
After that, I focused on seven-person rugby aiming for the Tokyo Olympics, but gave up participation because the tournament was postponed for one year due to the spread of virus infection, and gave priority to going on to become a doctor who wanted to be a student from school days. I decided.
Fukuoka had a press conference on the web on the 14th and said, "I decided that 7-person rugby was up to this year. I decided when the Olympics were postponed. I do not want to postpone what I decided to change, if I change it I made a decision because I thought I would regret it, and I would like to pursue the path of the next doctor through what I decided in my life."
In addition, regarding the question of what kind of doctor to aim for, he said that the field has not been decided yet, “I would like to make use of the experience of the athlete. I can understand not only the athlete's feelings but also the mental health. I want to be a doctor who can be a supporter in terms of both sides."
In addition, Fukuoka player said "I will call myself when it is time" about when to retire from active duty, and he will play next season in the top league.
