It was announced this week that two-time World Championships marathoner Satoshi Irifune (Team Kanebo) will run the April 25 London Marathon. Team Kanebo head coach Kunimitsu Ito said that Irifune had been intending to run the Rotterdam Marathon but that they had changed plans. Irifune joins several other Japanese runners in the world's most top-class field in London, including Berlin World Championships women's marathon silver medalist Yoshimi Ozaki (Team Daiichi Seimei), World Championships marathoner Yukiko Akaba, Beijing Olympian Takayuki Matsumiya (Team Konica Minolta), his twin brother Yuko Matsumiya (Team Konica Minolta) and World Half Marathon runner Yusei Nakao (Team Toyota Boshoku).
