Yoshii Out of Lake Biwa With Injury


translated by Brett Larner

On Feb. 27 the organizers of the 67th Lake Biwa Mainichi Marathon announced that domestic invited elite Satoshi Yoshii (28, Team Sumco), with a PB of 2:10:45 from last year's Lake Biwa, has withdrawn from the Mar. 4 race due to injury problems.  Yoshii began experiencing pain in his right knee in mid-January.  He continued to train while trying to recuperate from the problem, but in compensating for the injury his left Achilles tendon also became painful.
