On Sunday, August, 21, 2011, APU student MIYAMOTO Takeshi (APM4, Japan) won the 1500 meters with a time of 3:53.39 at the “66th All-Kyushu Athletics Competition” held at the Miyazaki Prefecture Comprehensive Sports Park. Takeshi is a member of the APU Women’s Athletics Team and serves as a manager and interpreter.
Looking back on his achievement Takeshi said, “This race and success were great preparation for the national athletics event coming up in September. I hope to run a good race as a representative of APU and Kyushu”.
Earlier in May this year, Takeshi placed first in the men’s 1500 meters at the Kyushu Students’ Athletics Competition held at the KKWING Kumamoto Prefectural Athletic Track & Field Grounds and secured a spot at the 80th All-Japan Inter-University Athletics Competition coming up on September 9 (also being held in Kumamoto).
We congratulate Takeshi on his great performance and look forward to even more achievements from him and the entire APU Women’s Athletics Team.
