Tokyo Olympics medalist Kazuma Kaya said Japan would field its strongest men's gymnastics squad yet at Paris 2024, where his only goal was to win the team title to improve on the silver medal he helped nab at the last Games.

On Sunday, Kaya finished second in the NHK Trophy competition, which decided the nine Japanese men and women who will join men's defending all-around champion Daiki Hashimoto in Paris.

"I still made some small mistakes here and there, and to win gold at the Olympics would require much more practice," said Kaya, 27, who took the team gold at the world championships with Hashimoto last October.
