Of the Japanese women in London and Boston, 2011 Osaka International Women's Marathon winner Yukiko Akaba (Team Hokuren) has the best chance of making an impact on the WMM rankings.

That article speaks of only seven added runners. So did one of them withdraw (maybe Sahaku)?

You're right, Joe, Sahaku is not in the video. I haven't heard about her withdrawing since the announcement of the add, but she ran quite poorly at a half in late Feb. so it would not be surprising.
