Attending her 2nd World Olympics, Peoria Koshiba competed in the 100m sprint earlier today. Koshiba competed in the 1st of the 10 heats. Feeling calm and confident, Koshiba sprinted off to finish with a Season’s Best time of 13.18 seconds. Her personal best time is 12.66 which she set in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
