  • Oya fell and suffered a spinal cord injury when he was 16 years old and became a wheelchair user. He began athletics in 2005. His talent came alive when he switched from middle- and long-distance to short-distance races, finishing the 100-meter race at the 2019 Japan Para Athletics Championships with an excellent time. This result allowed him to participate in the World Para Athletics Championships for the first time as a representative of Japan. At the 2019 World Para Athletics Championships, he came in 4th place, earning him a place on the Japanese delegation to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. (August 2020)
