Keita suffered from hamstrings injury and finish with 12.21 which is quite delayed from his best, 11.77. Mikio recorded his personal best, 12.21, but couldn’t advanced to the final. This was his first time to be in the national team, and aiming for 2020 with this experience. We met them just after the prelim and he was pretty nervous as it was first time to compete with paralympic champion, Jonnie Peacock in front of huge amount of audience.

Jarryd has started to use Xiborg blade from this season, and finish the prelim with great feeling, and advanced to the final. At the final, he took great start, and finished after Jonnie Peacock and Johannes Floor.

Man T44 200m

Heat 1
Jarryd Wallace 22.95 Q
Keita Sato DNS

Final (-1.0)
Jarryd Wallace 23.37 1st

This was great achievement for him to finish first. And as far as I know, this was the first japanese blade to support a gold medalist sprinter in the world-level competition like this. It’s great honor and we appreciate for his effort and achievement.
