On December 5, the Japan Association of Athletics Federations announced the recipients of the Athletics Awards and Suguru Osako ’14 was named the Athlete of the Year, highest award among all other Athletics Awards.
News about Osako, who graduated from the School of Sport Sciences, proliferated through the whole of Japan when he broke the national record at the Chicago Marathon two months ago with a timing of 2:05:50 and received 100 million yen from the National Corporate Federation of Japan for his achievements.
