The Japanese swimmer suffered from leukemia two years ago, and after being diagnosed, she has been back in the pool after 7 months.

However yesterday, April 4th, she qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 and It is simply an outstanding achievement against all the odds.

This story rippled through all over Japan and the swimming world in a matter of seconds, many Olympians express their delight for Ikee on social media.

The list includes Rio 2016 gold medallists Sarah Sjöström, Katinka Hosszu, Emma McKeon and Pernille Blume, as well as 2012 Olympic champion Chad le Clos, who labeled the moment 'inspirational' on his Instagram stories.
