Takuro Yamada, who participated in the Paralympic Games for the fifth consecutive tournament in the Tokyo Paralympic Games Men's 200m Individual Medley with Motor Disorders, finished 8th with a time of 2: 27.18.

Yamada hasn't had a tip from the elbow of his left arm since he was born, and he has participated in the Paralympics for the fifth time in a row since his first appearance at the Athens Games at the age of 13.



Yamada, who has entered three individual events in this tournament, was forced to abstain because he was late for the convocation time in the first 100-meter breaststroke, and did not advance to the final in the second 50-meter freestyle.



He participated in the 200-meter individual medley on the 1st, and in the morning qualifying, he finished 8th overall with a time of 2: 26.65 and advanced to the final.



Although he got off to a good start in the final, he was gradually separated by the powerful overseas team and finished 8th with a time of 2: 27.18.



The gold medal was Andrei Kalina of the Russian Paralympic Committee, the silver medal was Timothy Hodge of Australia, and the bronze medal was Yugo Didier of France.
