That second phrase was stronger than the first one.” headtopics.com
This is a move Igarashi said was the cumulation of four years of not only work, but also dedication and when it came to that moment, he knew what to do.“I remember I went up and I went up and when I was in the air, It was so slow. It felt like it was a never-ending manoeuvre,” Igarashi recalls.
