In October of the same year, she won the “Japan Youth Olympic Cup” 3,000-meter championship, and her 3,000-meter time reached 9 minutes and 23 seconds. Not only that, but the next year, she also represented Gunma Prefecture in the “National Metropolitan Prefecture Against Women’s Ekiden” and won the section award!

She won the 1,500 and 3,000-meter championships in the “Kanto University Land Athletic Conference” in her first year of high school, but in her second year of high school, she fell into a low ebb due to an injury to her left shinbone. The comeback can be said to be a strong comeback, and she has entered another realm!

The peak begins

The first is in December 2020, with a time of 5,000 in 15 minutes and 37 seconds, Busha Sei Lai became the first female Japanese high school student of the season! It would not be disrespectful to say that this is the time when a high school boy ran out, so this is really an amazing result.

Then in early 2021, finish the 6km event in 19:49 at the “Japan Women’s Cross Country Championships” under 20 and win! It is worth mentioning that at that time, she was not yet 18 years old. The players of this age have a lot of gaps in physical fitness every year, but she defeated a group of 18 and 19 year old players, and only She finished the race in 20 minutes alone, which shows that her strength is completely one level higher than other opponents.

Without breaking the holy clothes, she won the 6-kilometer race in 19:49 seconds in the “Japan Women’s Cross Country Championships” under the age of 20. She was the only one in the audience to finish the race in 20 minutes.

She graduated from high school in March of the same year and progressed to Takushoku University in April (Japan’s April start date). In 2017, the school’s average 10,000-meter score for men’s Yichuan players was 29 minutes and 32 seconds, which shows that the long-distance running strength is not bad.

As soon as she entered university, she won the 5000-meter championship in the “Japanese Student Land Athletics Competition” in 15 minutes and 48 seconds. After that, she ran out of one of her career masterpieces. She ran with other runners for the first 3 kilometers of the race, and passed the first 3 kilometers in 9 minutes and 23 seconds. After that, she started to speed up and put aside other opponents. The 3rd and 4th kilometers were completed in 3 minutes and 5 seconds, and the last 1 kilometer was even more Completed in 2 minutes and 58 seconds, not only breaking the conference record but also breaking the personal best!

Just after entering Takushoku University without breaking the holy clothes, he won the 5,000-meter championship in the “Japanese Student Land Athletics Athlete Tournament” in 15 minutes and 48 seconds.

If you think this is the best 5000m in the coming season without breaking the holy clothes, you are wrong! In July, she participated in a 5000-meter field race and became the third Japanese female college student and the sixth Japanese female youth in 15 minutes and 20 seconds. This result also made her successfully selected as the world youth track and field. The Japanese representative of the championship.

Then came the competition that made her popular – the 2021 “Nihon University Women’s Ekiden”. When she took over the relay belt, Takushoku University, to which Bupo Shengyilai belonged, was only ninth, but the situation began to change. She seemed to have entered another level, surpassing six people in a row, and was the Olympic marathon gold medalist Takahashi as a live broadcast commentator. Shang Zi even said that this is the birth of a star!

In the end, she completed the 9.2-kilometer interval in 28 minutes, breaking the interval record by 74 seconds, and if converted into 10,000 meters, it is close to the Japanese record of 30 minutes and 26 seconds. What is even more surprising is that she is only 18 years old. , the future is really limitless!

In 2021, the “Nippon University Women’s Ekiden” surpassed six people in a row, and finally completed the 9.2-kilometer interval in 28 minutes, breaking the interval record of 74 seconds.

different running style

Another striking feature of Unbroken Cloth is her “running posture“–Heel landing, And because the heel landing will make every step brake and slow down the running speed, thus making the running economy worse, many people are wondering why she can run so fast with the heel landing? Let me answer this question here.

Although it does look like her heels land on her heels when she moves at a high speed, it can be seen from the slow motion that she flattens the soles of her feet before landing every step, like a movement of scraping the ground, so when she lands, she has become midfoot landingIt’s not landing on the heel at all. Although landing on the midfoot does not necessarily mean that you will run faster, but it is certain that landing on the midfoot is one of the movements that can avoid sports injuries the most. Reducing injuries and making training coherent also make her progress. Reason for speed.

The running posture of not breaking the holy clothes looks like “heel landing”, in fact, she will flatten the soles of her feet before landing every step, and when she lands, it has become “midfoot landing”

Off the field, she mainly relies on cooking and playing the piano to relieve stress. She has been learning the piano since kindergarten, and usually likes to play Disney music, which may have also cultivated a sense of rhythm when running.


One of the main reasons for the improvement in the performance of Bupo Saint Cloth actually stems from the stimulation of this summer’s “Tokyo Olympics”.Because at that time, there were many athletes around her age active on the Tokyo Olympic Games, such as the 10,000-meter 20-year-old. Guangzhong Lilijia Won the seventh place after 25 years; Nozomi Tanaka In the 1500 meters, she set the eighth place in the first Olympic 1500 meters in Japanese women’s history, and broke the Japanese record!

This summer’s “Tokyo Olympics” brought a lot of excitement to the holy clothes, because there were many players around her age active on the court, such as Hironaka Riika (left) and Tanaka Nozomi (right)

These achievements have broken the stereotype that Asian local athletes were weak in middle and long distance running in the past, which also made her realize that as long as she worked hard, she could also compete with world athletes, which gave her a lot of courage. At the same time, she also set her sights on the 2024 Paris Olympics. She not only wanted to participate, but also wanted to run well.

I also hope that she will not be injured in the four years of college, and she will be seen in the Paris Olympics three years later! I don’t know if you have any thoughts on the story of not breaking the holy clothes, you are also welcome to leave a message in the comment area below!
