Sayaka Finishes Her 2nd Tokyo Marathon

27 02 2012

Sayaka Akimoto managed to complete her 2nd Tokyo marathon in a row yesterday and in the process knocking off nearly 75 mins from her previous best time. In 2011 she completed the gruelling course in 6 hours 53 mins and 53 seconds. This time she did it in 5 hours 39 mins and 34 seconds. Sayaka’s goal was always to do the course in under 6 hours so good on her for doing that. Sayaka’s charity this year was one that was chosen by her mother ‘Charity to Connect Lives’ – it provides medical supplies to poor families.

Many congratulations to Sayaka and watch her cross the finishing line in the clip below.
