He finished third in the 50-kilometre race walk event at the 2016 Rio Olympics, but was subsequently disqualified for making contact with Evan Dunfee of Canada, who then moved up from fourth place to claim the bronze medal. He had it given back to him after a few minutes when a Japanese appeal overturned the disqualification.
