Date:


Replace: Ladies’s 10000 m member Narumi Kobayashi was pulled from the workforce after testing optimistic in her pre-departure COVID check at Narita Airport. She is not reported to be experiencing any signs. No athlete might be added to the workforce in her place.
Japan’s remaining workforce for the Oregon 22 World Championships stands at 67 athletes, 41 males and 26 girls. Its solely actual medal prospects are within the males’s race walks, with high 8 prospects in just a few of its different historically and just lately robust occasions.

Tokyo Olympics males’s 20 kmRW silver medalist Koki Ikeda is the only finest shot Japan has at a person medal, amongst entrants the quickest on the planet this 12 months at 1:18:53 and #3 within the rankings. Defending world champ and Olympic bronze medalist Toshikazu Yamanishi is correct there too off a win at March’s WA Race Strolling Staff Championships. Eiki Takahashi is Third-fastest and Hiroto Jusho eleventh within the discipline, so chances are high superb of at the very least one different end within the high 8.

The lineup within the still-new males’s 35 kmRW has the three quickest occasions on the planet amongst entrants with Masatora Kawano, Daisuke Matsunaga and Tomohiro Noda standing at 4th via sixth within the rankings, so there’s an opportunity of a medal right here too and it will be a shock if there is not at the very least one high 8 putting. Slightly extra distantly, Yuki Hashioka has the Seventh-best soar this season within the males’s lengthy soar and is ranked #4. There is a slight risk of him pulling out a miracle and making the rostrum, however a end outdoors the highest 8 can be much more shocking right here.

Marathon NR holder Kengo Suzuki is the opposite man with the perfect probability of a high 8 end, ranked eighth within the discipline on each SB and world rankings. 3000 mSC NR holder Ryuji Miura, 10000 m all-time #2 Ren Tazawa and excessive jumper Tomohiro Shinno all have outdoors possibilities of a high 8, in descending order of likelihood. The 4×100 m relay, considered one of Japan’s focal occasions up till the house floor DNF on the Tokyo Olympics, is an unknown this time, lacking core members Yoshihide Kiryu, Shuhei Tada and Ryota Yamagata and leaving its possibilities in much less skilled fingers. Yuki Koike and Abdul Hakim Sani Brown will play key roles.

No girls have reasonable possibilities of medals, Haruka Kitaguchi and Mizuki Matsuda the one ones ranked in single digits on each SB and world rankings. Kitaguchi grew to become the primary Japanese athlete to win a Diamond League occasion when she took the javelin throw finally month’s Paris assembly. A high 8 end appears like a lock, but it surely’ll be an enormous step up for her to get into medal territory.

Matsuda is by some measures Japan’s finest marathoner, with wins in 4 of 6 marathons thus far together with her final three, high 5 within the different two, sub-2:23 in 5 of 6 together with her final three, and quickest this season at 2:20:52 for the win in Nagoya in March. However women-only NR holder Mao Ichiyama is barely a step behind and made the highest 8 finally summer time’s Olympics, so it would not be a shock to see her up there with Matsuda the entire approach. Together with the opposite workforce member Hitomi Niiya it is the perfect lineup Japan has ever fielded for a world championships, however after all lately the perfect of the perfect are a kilometer forward of them.

Serena Sonoda has the 4th-best time within the girls’s 35 kmRW and is ranked eleventh, giving her a greater probability of high 8 than 20 kmRW teammates Nanako Fujii and Kumiko Okada. Seventh within the Tokyo Olympics 10000 m 5 days after breaking the 5000 m NR, Ririka Hironaka is the opposite athlete with a sensible shot at high 8, solely sixteenth within the 10000 m discipline on SB however ranked fifth. She has proven she will carry out within the massive races, so it would not be a shock to see her do it once more.

The whole workforce entry itemizing is under. Rating is by season finest on general entry lists, with world rating amongst entered athletes in parentheses. Marks listed are finest with the Oregon qualifying window.
