At nearly 20 years old, Haruki is determined to bring slacklining to the olympics! Six years ago, someone told him there was a slackline at a temple in his hometown; he got curious and went to try. The difficulty of the sport and the frustration that comes with it pushed him to get better and he got hooked.
Haruki trains regularly; he found an indoor spot he can practice at around three times a week. He doesn’t have a coach or a trainer, just his determination.
When he was young, Haruki dreamed of playing baseball professionally. His goal today is to be a great slackliner and spread his love for this sport. He dreams of the day slacklining will be a popular sport, as common as baseball or soccer.
