Kizuna: The Bond Between Two Runners
8/ 25 (Sun) 10:00PM(ET) /7:00PM(PT)
An increasing number of visually impaired runners make astonishing records. However, those great records cannot be achieved without guide runners. What connects a pair of athletes during races is a rope about 30-cm-long and it is called "kizuna" which means a bond in Japanese. Following the two pairs with the world records, one in Japan and the other in the United States, we approach the ultimate "bond" with the latest scientific research.
