After the London Olympics and graduating from university, From April in 2013 until late 2015, I had trained my hardest in Perth and the Gold Coast to be able to go to the Rio Olympics.
Unfortunately, there is no one in Japan who can coach open water swimming professionally yet and there are hardly any open water races in Japan.
Only thing I could think of doing at the time was to train in Australia where open water swimming is not a minor sport. I wanted to become stronger and faster for the next Olympic games. Next thing I knew, I was in Australia already.
I had never lived outside of Japan until I graduated from university, so it was very hard for me to get used to the Australian life style. But thanks to all of my team mates, coaches and friends who I met during the stay in Australia had helped me get to where I am now.
I had trained with 4 teams in Australia. UWA, City of Perth, Bond university and TSS.
I would like to send a huge thank you to all of my ex coaches Mel Tantrum, Matt Magee and Colin Braund for giving me the best training and advices. My awesome team mates Rhys, Kane, Hootz, Heidi, George, Sam, Nick, Jess, Zoe,Ky, Courtney, Troy and Michael are also people who I cannot thank enough!
I honestly think that I wouldn’t had been able to go to the Rio Olympics if I hadn’t met and trained with all of you.
I will do my absolute best on the 16th of August. For them.
