i enjoy

For me, the greatest moment in life is when I am sharing the joy of winning a game with my team mates. If we can conquer the world's strongest teams at the Paralympics, I think the joy of winning will be four-fold. (Ikezaki)

Strong points

"My wheelchair is essentially my legs, so in order to become capable of maneuvering my wheelchair as smoothly as possible, I try to spend as much time as I can in my wheelchair so that I can improve my sprints and turns."
