Japanese swimmer Ikee Rikako has qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games after returning to the sport following her battle with leukemia.
Ikee took part in the women's 100-meter butterfly final at the national championships on Sunday.
The 20-year-old made a slow start, but was in second place after the first 50 meters.
She picked up speed and overtook the frontrunner to win the race with a time of 57.77 seconds.
She cleared the time required to be a member of the 400-meter medley relay.
A tearful Ikee said she had thought it would be a long time before she could win a race again.
She also said she didn't imagine that she could qualify for the Games, even as a relay member.
Ikee was diagnosed with leukemia in February 2019. She returned to competition in August last year after medical treatment that included a 10-month stay in hospital.
She has taken part in five competitions since her comeback. In February, she finished a 50-meter butterfly race with a time that would have allowed her to qualify for the final of the world championships in 2019.
