SOCHI, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Japan’s ski jumper Taku Takeuchi, who won the team ski jumping bronze on Monday, said he had devoted his performance at the Sochi Olympic Games to all other people suffering from Churg-Strauss syndrome.
“It was not a danger for my sports career that concerned me, but my very life,” said Taku Takeuchi who could not fight back his tears. “I want to thank people who were helping me at that difficult period of my life and contributed to my success at the Olympic Games. I have managed to play my heart out here, and I want to thank my elder friends who helped me win the team bronze,” he said.
Taku Takeuchi said his father had supported his wish to go on with sports, while his mother had been skeptical about the idea. “Once my friends brought a photo to my hospital ward, in which my hair was painted gold. By doing this they helped me to hold on and pursue my ambition,” he added.
