  • Nakamura uses an electric wheelchair due to being born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. He started playing boccia at a hospital where he was doing rehabilitation. His talent grew prominent at international tournaments from 2016, and in 2018, he helped Team BC1-2 win the silver medal at the BISFed 2018 World Boccia Championships. Tokyo 2020 will be his first Paralympic Games, and he hopes to win medals in both individual and team matches.
