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that domestic invited elite Satoshi Yoshii (28, Team Sumco), with a PB of 2:10:45 from last year's Lake Biwa, has withdrawn from the Mar. 4 race due to injury problems.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.
