Comment from Shun Sato
Thank you everyone for all of your support.
It has been a while since I had competed overseas, but I could perform calmly. I’m very happy to have won the bronze medal. I am gradually gaining confidence and hope to raise it further from here.
I will do my best in the next round in Finland! Thank you for your continued support.
