Japan’s Potential Team for Oregon World Championships


This week after the wrap of the 2022 Nationwide Monitor and Subject Championships the JAAF had a press convention to announce additions to the already-announced street occasion members of its crew for subsequent month’s Oregon World Championships crew. 18 males and 9 girls are on the crew for positive with a mix of getting the Worlds customary and assembly JAAF standards for putting on the Nationwide Championships, and with slightly below two weeks till the deadline for qualifying these numbers may go as excessive as 36 males and 24 girls based mostly on the place folks sit proper now of their occasion quotas.

Under is an inventory of occasions with Japanese athletes both already certified or inside their occasion quota. Proper now there’s potential that Japan may ship full squads within the males’s 110 mH, males’s 400 mH, males’s 3000 mSC, males’s excessive bounce, males’s marathon, each males’s race walks and each males’s relays, and within the girls’s 5000 m, girls’s 10000 m, girls’s 3000 mSC, girls’s javelin throw, girls’s marathon, girls’s 35 km race stroll, and girls’s 4×100 m, plus the combined 4×400 m relay.

The one actual medal likelihood is within the males’s 20 km and 35 km race walks, the place Japan has the #1-ranked athletes in Toshikazu Yamanishi (Aichi Seiko) and Masatora Kawano (Asahi Kasei), with sensible top-8 possibilities from Ryuji Miura (Juntendo Univ.) within the males’s 3000 mSC, Yuki Hashioka (Fujitsu) within the males’s lengthy bounce, others within the males’s walks, and Serena Sonoda (NTN) within the girls’s 35 km race stroll. One in all Japan’s usually robust occasions, the lineup of the lads’s 4×100 m relay stays to be seen as youthful athletes step as much as exchange among the prime names of the present era.

There are nonetheless possibilities for folks on the cusp of constructing their quota to enhance their standing, or to chase qualifying requirements forward of the June 26 deadline. The primary alternative for everybody from 800 m to 10000 m would be the June 22 Hokuren Distance Problem meet in Fukagawa, which may have pacing for the usual in every part besides the ladies’s 5000 m. However with the best way issues stand proper now, the primary questions are:

  • With not one of the prime 3 on the Nationwide Championships males’s 10000 m having cleared the usual, will the JAAF give a spot to Ren Tazawa (Komazawa Univ.), the one Japanese man to have cleared it however who ran badly at Nationals?
  • Kosei Yamaguchi (Aisan Kogyo) is the highest man within the 3000 mSC quota internationally however missed the usual by a second at Nationals. Yasunari Kusu (Ami AC) is correct behind him within the quota and ran an enormous PB at Nationals to complete 2 seconds behind Yamaguchi. If each miss the usual at Hokuren then Yamaguchi ought to decide up the third place on the crew, however can Kusu run one other PB and get the usual to knock Yamaguchi out?
  • Males’s excessive bounce NR holder Naoto Tobe (JAL) was a DNS at Nationals with an Achilles tendon damage. That is in all probability sufficient to maintain him out of Worlds, however with him nonetheless ranked solidly contained in the quota will he make it to Oregon?
  • Two locations on the ladies’s 5000 m squad are already set, however the third and 4th-place finishers at Nationals, Rino Goshima (Shiseido) and Yuka Ando (Wacoal) haven’t got the usual, whereas Fifth-placer Kaede Hagitani (Edion) does. By not having standard-level pacing within the girls’s 5000 m the JAAF appears to be throwing the place to Hagitani, which ends up in the 10000 m.
  • Within the girls’s 10000 m, Goshima is certainly one of two folks whose spots are safe. Hagitani was prime 3 right here in her debut at Nationals however simply missed the usual. The JAAF may have standard-quality pacing for the Hokuren 10000 m, so if Hagitani will get it there then she’s in for the 5-10 double. However why her and never Goshima?
  • If Hagitani would not get it then who the third particular person shall be, if any, is a tricky one. The highest-ranked lady Seira Fuwa (Takushoku Univ.) was nonetheless recovering from an damage and did not run at Nationals. The subsequent-best, Ando, did not run Nationals however is in nice form based mostly on her 5000 m there. The subsequent-best, Narumi Kobayashi (Meijo Univ.) ran Nationals however was clearly having damage issues and ran poorly. Ando looks like the almost certainly decide, but when so that might once more make the query why an opportunity for the double for Hagitani and never her, until she and Goshima simply do not need to strive?

36 males and 24 girls could be certainly one of if not the largest and most equal crew Japan has fielded in athletics, so we’ll see the way it finally ends up shaping up two weeks from now after the ultimate deadline.
