Story with Form - Radio

Soichi Hashimoto could have stayed away from the Rio Olympics.

Having missed out on selection for Japan's judo team -- in the -73kg division -- he could have been forgiven for staying at home.

"I was disappointed in myself, watching the Rio Olympic Games from the sidelines," Hashimoto tells CNN on missing out to Shohei Ono, who would go on to win gold.

"This was the main reason why I went to Rio, to feel the disappointment and feel the atmosphere at the Olympic Games.

"When I was watching the medal ceremony, I imagined myself on the highest spot of the podium in four years time."

While Rio was heartache for Hashimoto, sitting out the Tokyo 2020 Games in his home city is unthinkable.

It's that fear that drives him now
