The selection of canoe sprint overseas dispatched athletes will begin in Sakaide City, Kagawa Prefecture, and if you take first place in this tournament, you will be sure to participate in the world final qualifying, which will lead to the qualifying quota for the Tokyo Olympics.
The tournament was held without spectators to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, of which Raeka Tada, a native of Sakaide City, participated in the women's kayak single 500 meters.
In difficult conditions with crosswinds and headwinds, Tadara pulled the race from the first half and finished in 1st place with a time of 2: 05.515, ensuring his participation in the world final qualifying.
Tadara's primary goal is to win a spot in the Asian continent qualifying in May, which has already been selected as a representative, but if he cannot, this time, he will definitely be in the national team in the final qualifying round. We aim to participate in the Tokyo Olympics at one of the final rounds of the host country frame.
Ra Tadara said, "It's a difficult situation with the new Corona, but I believe in the Tokyo Olympics and want to do my best."
