A 19-year-old Japanese student has caused a controversy in Japan after she broke her leg during a relay race but continued to crawl to her teammate so that her team could finish the race. Rei Iida was participating in the Princess Ekiden relay race in Fukuoka prefecture last month when she tripped and fractured her right leg 650 feet from the next runner. While some people praised her determination, a lot of people felt that Iida should have been stopped and that it was an example of the Japanese culture of overwork. According to Japanese media, Iida’s coach informed the race organizers that the team would be dropping out of the race immediately after Iida was injured, but the organizers had been slow to respond. Organizers, meanwhile, said that they were unable to stop her because she wanted to continue the race. Doctors have said it would take up to four months for Iida to recover from her leg fracture (📹: TBS)
