'Yuri Kano Leads Elite Japanese Runners’ Return to New York'

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/29/sports/global/29marathon.html

Yuri Kano's NYCM debut has gotten some mainstream attention in the U.S. Coming as it does just days before the regional qualifying ekidens for the national corporate ekiden championship events it is extremely rare for teams to allow their runners to compete in New York, and almost never their best runners. Kano's team Second Wind AC exists outside the corporate team circuit, a fact which gives her more latitude to compete overseas.

The New York City Marathon will be broadcast live online by Universal Sports. Universal's webcasts are usually blocked in Japan, but NYCM will apparently be available to view in Japan by clicking here.
