An incredible gift to the Japanese people

An incredible gift to the Japanese people

Incredible! As a final gift to the Japanese people, 66 year old visually impaired marathon runner Mihoko Nishijima crossed the line 8th in a time of 3:29.12!

She was completely exhausted & struggling to stay on her feet in the final hundred metres, but the volunteers lined up and clapped her home.

Mihoko may have been born in 1955 but she’s still thrilling the world in 2021.
