At a Tokyo-area press conference on June 10, the Japanese Federation announced 26 more names for the Japanese national team for this summer's Moscow World Championships which kick off August 10.  On the men's side, sprinters Yoshihide Kiryu (Rakunan H.S.), Ryota Yamagata (Keio Univ.) and Shota Iizuka (Chuo Univ.) feature in the lineup.  Hitomi Niiya (Team Univ. Ent.) leads the women's additions after lapping the entire field in the women's 10000 m at the National Championships over the weekend.  Women's javelin national record holder Yuki Ebihara (Suzuki Hamamatsu AC) and 200 m national record holder Chisato Fukushima (Hokkaido Hi-Tec AC) were also among those chosen.

In addition to the marathon and racewalk teams previously announced on April 25, the newly announced members bring the national team up to 41 athletes including 8 national record holders.  More athletes may be added pending the outcome of July's 20th anniversary Asian Games in Pune, India.
