Japanese amputee paralympic swimmer Tomotaro Nakamura looks towards the setting sun and steels himself as he prepares on the block for the start of his S5 50 metre freestyle final at the 2018 Para Pan Pacific Championships at the Tobruk Pool in Cairns Australia. Nakamura … who had both arms amputated below the shoulder at birth … won Gold. He is one of Japans most accomplished paralympic swimmers.
