Japan Championships in Athletics Tomorrow Opening Attention Players Enthusiasm September 30 17:58
Before the start of the Japan Championships in Athletics on the 1st, notable players such as Yoshihide Kiryu and Aska Cambridge, who will participate in the men's 100 meters, made the final adjustments.
The Japan Championships on land will be held at Big Swan Stadium in Niigata City for 1 to 3 days, about 3 months behind due to the influence of the new coronavirus.
Kiryu and Yuki Koike, who have a record of 9 seconds 98 seconds, which is the second place in Japan's history, and Cambridge player who marked a personal best of 10 seconds 03 this season participated in the men's 100 meters, which is the first time in history. It is also expected to be settled on the platform.
Of these, Kiryu, who is doing well, marking 10 seconds 0 cars four times this season, has continued trial and error such as changing the position of his foot at the start for the past month, so he practiced starting for 30 days. I was checking the feeling repeatedly.
Kiryu said, "I want to jump out from the start and connect from the middle to the second half. I have a good feeling in myself in the last race, so I'm looking forward to it. I want to win the race so that the audience will be excited." I was enthusiastic toward the peak for the first time in 6 years.
On the other hand, Cambridge, who set his personal best for the first time in three years this season, is aiming for the first victory in four years.
On the 30th, I carefully practiced the start, which I felt a response by sweating while running.
Cambridge said, "Because the start that I was not good at has improved, I have different confidence before going to the race. I want to finish by winning at the end because the match result of this season's final is 1 win and 1 loss. 9 I want to run while looking at the second range, "he said, conscious of winning the 9-second range.
In addition, players with sufficient achievements such as Koike and Shuhei Tada also sweated for the day's race.
Koike, who holds a record of 9 seconds 98 in the men's 100 meters, said, "I wasn't physically fit at the beginning of the season, but now I'm able to step on the ground firmly and I'm in good shape. I think I can fight for the championship, so I hope I can get my perfect score. "
Similarly, Tada, who is 100 meters long, said, "The Japanese championship at this time is unusual, but I want to make it a tournament that will give momentum to next year. I am conscious of the acceleration from the middle stage, which is my weapon, and keep it different from other players. Ideally, I want to reach the goal, and I want to relax and give momentum to the front. I think that if I race myself without being aware of the players around me, I think I will get results, so I want to do my best so that I can compete for the championship. "I said enthusiasm.
The men's 100 meters are scheduled for the qualifying and semi-finals on the 1st and the final on the 2nd, and NHK will broadcast on general TV and BS1 during the tournament.
Women's javelin throw Haruka Kitaguchi "Update tournament record"
Haruka Kitaguchi, who holds the Japanese record for women's javelin throw, will set a good record of 63 meters 45 at the tournament on the 19th of this month and will face the Japanese championship on the 1st.
Kitaguchi said, "It's difficult to perfectly reproduce the throwing two weeks ago, but if you can't do that, you won't be able to fight in the world. I want to be aware of the good technical feeling at that time."
He said, "I'm happy that the Japan Championships will be held and I'll be able to play in the presence of the spectators for the first time in a while. I'll do my best to get the energy of the spectators and break the tournament record I set last year."
