His name is Q. They ask him how he feels, and he replied nothing much he says he has to win. The next day in the morning Jotaro, while on a walk with his wife, met with the press.
They started asking him about his career and retirement. His coach comes up to his savior and tells the media that he has not permitted an interview. Jotaro couldn’t handle the pressure, so he sat down with his coach and told him that he wants to do gymnast again.
