This is the third time Tsubaki has advanced to the World Cup Top 8 this season.
I heard from Tsubaki’s family that she was a little slumped, but she was regaining her sense of racing, and as far as I saw the live performance, I felt that she was back to normal.
The scene where Tsubaki slammed her helmet and face before the start was very impressive.
We hope that the good news of Tsubaki will be broadcast on TV news in the morning at the end of the season!
RUSH RUSH! TSUBAKI!
