Transformative Moment

Being part of the Nike Oregon Project.

Suguru Says

My favorite meal is...

grilled eel and sushi.

I’m inspired by...

other athletes.

In my bag...

I keep as few things as possible, usually just spikes and a change of clothes.

I’m motivated by...

knowing that I’m approaching my goals step by step and being rewarded for my success.

When I’m not training...

I’m sleeping, studying English or going out.

I wind down by...

listening to music and taking a hot bath.

I want my legacy to be...

the records that I set and fostering young talent by sharing my athletic techniques.
