Comment from Mr. Uemura - SEISA University Track and Field Club Director:
“He was able to show off his current abilities, and the race was one that will lead to the next race. However, the last-place chase is still not strong enough. He will focus on strengthening his endurance and sprinting ability in order to prepare for the All-Japan Intercollegiate Athletic Championships in September.”
