Rikako Ikee and other athletes from the Tokyo Olympics were invited to the swimming competition held in Tokyo to confirm the issues they are working on after the Olympics through the race.

Eighteen Japanese national team players who participated in the Tokyo Olympics were invited to the tournament held in Toshima-ku, Tokyo.

The players are supposed to participate in the tournament on the 19th and 20th, and Ikee participated in the women's 400m freestyle in the event held on the 19th.

Ikee took part in the race as part of his strength at 50 meters and 100 meters, marking 4 minutes 20 seconds 89 in the final and finishing 5th.

Ikee, who responded to the interview after the race, recalled, "It was a tough race, but in a sense it was a fun race."

After the Tokyo Olympics, he is currently working on improving the start for the world championship representative selection meeting to be held in March next year. It's painful for a sprinter to be able to go. I'm training so that I can go forward even a little. I hope I can make it in March next year. "

Ikee is scheduled to participate in the women's 50-meter backstroke on the 20th.

In addition, Katsuhiro Matsumoto, who participated in the men's 100-meter freestyle, was tired from practicing for the short waterway world championship to be held in the UAE = United Arab Emirates next month, and he was still tired in the final. He was in 7th place at 51.44, slightly shorter than the qualifying.

After the race, Matsumoto said, "I thought it would be better if I could swim with 100% power to bully my body and connect it to training firmly, rather than time," and said, "I won a medal at the world championship in May next year." I want to proceed with preparations with the goal of taking it. "
