Beijing Olympics women`s marathon runner Reiko Tosa (Team Mitsui Sumitomo Kaijo) returned to Kunming, China on July 10 for her final overseas training before the race itself. Tosa plans to remain in Kunming through the end of the month. The focus of her training this time will be to memorize the ten-page Olympic course map containing seventy runner`s-view photos prepared by Team Mitsui Sumitomo Kaijo manager Takashi Takaseki. "I ran the Olympic course in April, so I don`t remember everything," said Tosa. "I think this map is really going to help refresh my memory."
