KANAKO was featured on a poster for a cycling competition.

Yesterday, with only 120 days to go until the Tokyo Olympics (if they can be held), a ceremony was held in Shizuoka Prefecture with the governor in attendance.
Shizuoka Prefecture is the venue for the cycling events at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

At the ceremony, it was announced that KANAKO, a native of Shizuoka Prefecture, had been chosen as the model for the prefecture's official poster.
