Manami Ito is a nurse, a violinist, and a Paralympian swimmer. She came in 4th in the 100m Breaststroke at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and 8th at the 2012 London Paralympics. She is also the first nurse to have a prosthetic arm in Japan, and shares her violin performances around the country.

In the video above (updated), she plays Thread by Miyuki Nakajima. Kazushige Masuda captured her performance on September 2, 2018 at the Takarazuka City General Welfare Center in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan.
