Japan Olympic swim hope Rikako Ikee diagnosed with leukaemia

TOKYO – Japan’s swim queen Rikako Ikee, a genuine gold medal hope at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, has been diagnosed with leukaemia, the 18-year-old tweeted on Tuesday (Feb 12).

In a shock announcement, Ikee said: “After feeling unwell I returned in haste from Australia and following tests I was diagnosed with leukaemia. I still can’t believe it myself and I’m in a state of confusion.”

Ikee shot to fame at the 2018 Asian Games, where she captured a record six gold medals to fire a warning for the 2020 Olympics in her home city.
