Athletics Men's 100m Ryota Yamagata Japan Championship Missed Due to knee pain September 29, 20:41

Ryota Yamagata, who was scheduled to participate in the men's 100 meters of the Japan Championships in Athletics, which will start on the 1st of next month, will be absent due to knee pain.

The Japan Athletics Championships will be held in Niigata City from October 1st for 3 days.

Yamagata was planning to participate in the men's 100-meter dash, which is the most notable event, but announced on the 29th that he would be absent due to "discomfort and pain in his right knee."

Yamagata has a record of 10 seconds, which is the 4th place in Japan's history, and has won the Japan Championship men's 100 meters twice.

However, when I missed the Japan Championship last year due to a lung disease, I suffered from a series of injuries.

Last month, I returned to the race at the National Stadium for the first time in about a year and three months, but I lost the qualifying at 10 seconds 42 and hurriedly headed for the Japan Championship, and this month I held a training camp in Hokkaido to make adjustments.

Yamagata will not participate in future tournaments this season, so he will end the season unwillingly following last season.

Japan record holder Sani Brown Abdul Hakim will miss the men's 100 meters in the Japan Championships, but players such as Yoshihide Kiryu, Yuki Koike, and Aska Cambridge will aim for the 9-second range. High-level races are expected by us.
