Her pacey ski practice

The interview was finished in the morning, so we could have a chance to ask about FPP she takes after lunch. Ski cross events are held in the mountains at an altitude above 2000 meters overseas. So it is quite normal for her to feel bad, short of breath, or tired (of course suffering from jet lag), when she arrives at the event place. However, she got really surprised that such bad feelings ceased in 5-10 minutes after she took FPP. She also said that by taking FPP after a race or practice, she feels ease even just after skiing without feeling lactic acid in her muscle as always. She takes FPP daily and does not feel any change in particular with normal condition, but it was really surprising for her to feel difference clearly after race or practice. She said that she was getting strong mentally, but she still feels tense during races, so she wants to find good timing to take FPP to gain maximum concentration. "I would like to transmit charm of ski cross as much as possible." said Akane. It was a meaningful dialogue for us. We would like to continue to support her in corporation with Hotel Ichinose.

These medals give her confidence.
