Nishioka "Bullish for gold medal at Paris Olympics"
NISHIOKA Takanari reflected on the performance, saying, "I think we were able to take one step forward in aiming for next year's Paris Olympics, but compared to the qualifiers, we couldn't attack our minds and tried to play safely, so we couldn't show the sharpness of our skills."
Nishioka withdrew from last year's World Championships aiming for a gold medal due to a worsening left knee injury and returned after undergoing surgery.
For this year's World Championships, he was enthusiastic, saying, "Last year, I gave up my performance and was depressed, but I decided that I couldn't waste it, so I was able to change my mind and review my technique in the off-season.
