The Japanese women's team finished 3rd behind Russia and the U.S.A. with two runners in the top eight. My Harriers teammate Shinji Nakadai, the runner at 0:59 in the video above, was the 4th Japanese finisher on the men's team. おめでとうございます。 The video and others at the same site were sent to me by a JRN reader. Thank you.
Another reader sent this link to photos of the World Cup including two of the Japanese men. Thanks as well.
