Daiya Seto Declines Captain of Japan National Swimming Team Apologizing for Women’s Issues September 30 at 7:13 PM
It has been found that Daiya Seto, who has been appointed to represent the Tokyo Olympics, has declined to be captain of the Japan National Swimming Team.
Seto, the only Japanese swimmer to be appointed to represent the Tokyo Olympics, announced through a management company on the 24th of this month that he accepted the contents of the report and apologized in response to reports about his own women’s issues.
According to those involved, Seto visited the Japan Swimming Federation in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo on the afternoon of the 30th and apologized for a series of problems and announced his intention to resign as captain of the Japan National Swimming Team.
The Japan Swimming Federation is going to deliberate at the Executive Board meeting on the 6th of next month.
Seto also signed a contract with the JOC-Japan Olympic Committee to be a “symbol athlete” to manage his ability and portrait rights to popular athletes, but his contract was canceled on the 30th at his offer.
In addition, the affiliation has been canceled on the 30th in response to an offer from All Nippon Airways, which had been contracted.
According to the Japan Swimming Federation, Seto was scheduled to compete in the 400-meter individual medley, which has a world record, at the Japan Short Waterway Championships to be held on the 17th of next month.
The management company said it was “considering future plans” in response to a series of problems and the lifting of its affiliation contract.
