...now is here...
I'm going to eat dinner.
My race was not good.I was 4th at the start(the timing of the start pistol is difficult for me until being used to.There is no "yo-i",just pistol only.) Iran skater was 3rd and he was not so fast and big, so he blocked me. I passed him at 2nd corner but it's too late.The top 2 went so far away.3 seconds behind and I finished 3rd.
Kenta kita was almost qualified.He is in the 2nd until the last rap in front of the Indian skater.But at the backstaight of the last rap, the indian skater passed him, and finished just 1 foot before Kenta.
3000mrelay,also almost qualified. Japan and India was in the 2nd group.The place changed many times.2nd,3rd,2nd,3rd....At the last 2 raps India passed Japan and Japan could not passed them again.India finished just in front of Japan.
Still there is races today.
