Ramu Tokashiki is thrilled to be back on the court. But the star player knows a spot on the national team is no guarantee.
Tokashiki has not competed for Japan's women's national team since the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics due to nagging injuries, mostly in her ankles. But she has returned to the floor full of energy.
The 28-year-old power forward reunited with the national squad this month for its ongoing fifth and sixth training camps ahead of September's FIBA Women's Asia Cup in Bangalore, India.
