Japan’s national rugby player, Kazuki Himeno, has poked fun at Shohei Ohtani’s “stoic life.
Himeno, along with NBA Phoenix Suns forward Yuta Watanabe, appeared on a program on Nihon TV on Friday and commented on Otani, whom they know well. The two were born in 1994, the same year as Otani.
According to Japan’s Daily Sports, during the program, Himeno said of Ohtani, “He’s a god. A big star, born in 1994,” and “He’s ‘Stoic’. It’s amazing that he thinks about baseball all day long. I can’t do it.”
Himeno, who revealed that he once had a meal with Ohtani, said that even over drinks, Ohtani couldn’t answer the question, “What kind of training do you do for rugby?” “He talked about training until the very end. “I was talking about self-care and still drinking highballs, and Shohei Ohtani was really self-care and drinking non-alcoholic. I thought, “Is this okay?” He confessed.스포츠토토
“Himeno is a self-disciplined top athlete in his own right,” said Daily Sports, “but it was Otani’s ultimate ‘stoicism’ that made Himeno’s jaw drop.
