i enjoy

Triathletes get to compete at a very close distance from spectators. Hearing the cheers of the spectators always motivates me to fight to complete the race to the end. (Hata)

Strong points

"Since I was a swimmer before becoming a triathlete, my forte is swimming out of the three disciplines (swimming, cycling, running). I hope to finish first in swimming, and hold on to my lead until the end."
