Ikee poised to return

Japanese swimmer Rikako Ikee, who was set to be a star of the now-postponed Tokyo Olympics before she was diagnosed with leukemia, will return to competition for the first time since her illness later this month, according to local media. The 20-year-old had said previously she was aiming to return to competition in October so her reported comeback will come earlier than expected. Both public broadcaster NHK and Kyodo News Agency reported yesterday that Ikee would be competing at a Tokyo Swimming Association-sanctioned meet on August 29, according to sources.
