Akimoto Sayaka Completes Tokyo Marathon 2012


Akimoto Sayaka has successfully completed the Tokyo Marathon for the 2nd time in a row, finishing at 5h34m13s this year.

Her timing at last year's Tokyo Marathon 2011 was 6h53h53s, reducing 1 hour from her run time this year. She has also achieved her goal of completing the marathon under 6 hours.

Awaiting at the finish line was Sayaka's mother. When asked what kind of daughter Sayaka is, she replied "an excellent daughter, and someone I can be proud of". Sayaka also commented  "I'm glad that I managed to finish the marathon, I hate losing just like mom" with a relieved expression on her face

Sayaka ran this year's marathon for the charity organisation "Charity to Connect Lives" which was chosen by her mother, who also donated the 100,000yen needed for her to take part in the race as a charity runner.
