Career Highlights: Inui and duet partner Chisa Kobayashi are considered to be Japan's best hopes for a medal in the pool at London. While the Japanese swimming program has fallen behind other national powers, Inui and Kobayashi are a bright spot coming into the Games. The duo placed fifth at the 2011 world championships in the technical and free routines to punch their ticket to the Olympics. At the 2009 worlds, they finished fourth in the technical routine and sixth in the free. Inui will double as a member of Japan's team event.
