Swimming success

本文作者: TEENS

Rikako Ikee XINHUA

Rikako Ikee, a Japanese swimmer, is the perfect example of unyielding (顽强不屈的) determination. On April 4, Ikee defied the odds to win the women’s 100-meter butterfly event at Japan’s national championships. That secured a seat for her in the 4x100 medley relay (混合泳接力) in the Tokyo Olympic Games to be held this July. The 20-year-old was diagnosed with leukemia (白血病) in 2019 but recovered and resumed training last year. “I thought I wouldn’t be able to win for a long time. But I trained hard to win. ... And so I feel that, even if you go through suffering and pain, your hard work will always be rewarded,” she said in a poolside interview, according to the Associated Press. Ikee had been expected to be Japan’s top contender (竞争者) at the Tokyo Games. She won six gold medals in 2018 at the Asian Games and finished seven events in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
