    攻めた結果 #Tokyo2020

    The Japanese called last night’s baton exchange error the “consequence of the attack” – 攻めた結果.  They adopted a very aggressive and risky method to exchange the baton. They had to because they couldn’t run faster than the rules of biology. Generations of runners had worked on this method of baton exchange for almost 20 years,…
