Having turned 40 this year, Ikezaki is not letting age slow him down.
Ikezaki is classified as a 3.0 player, which gives him the responsibility of being the primary ball carrier, as well as scoring and setting up plays.
Defensive transition is one of Ikezaki’s main strengths.
He and fellow 3.0-player Yukinobu Ike have formed one of the most dangerous combinations in the sport, which they will continue to build on heading into the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics Games.
Japan finished fourth at the 2014 World Championships in Odense, Denmark, missing out on bronze to the USA, but will be highly-fancied to feature on the podium for the first time at the 2018 edition in Sydney, Australia.
