Moscow World Championships - Day Seven Japanese Results

by Brett Larner

On the seventh day of competition at the 2013 Moscow World Championships, national champions Hitomi Shimura (Saga T&F Assoc.) and Yuki Ebihara (Suzuki Hamamatsu AC) were both eliminated in the opening rounds of the women's 100 m hurdles and women's javelin.  200 m men Kei Takase (Team Fujitsu) and Yuichi Kobayashi (Team NTN) were likewise cut out in the heats, Kobayashi run down in the final meters of Heat Four after running virtually even with world record holder Usain Bolt (Jamaica) coming off the curve.  2010 world junior champion Shota Iizuka (Chuo Univ.) took 3rd in Heat Six to advance to the semi-finals, but with only a slight improvement there he was unable to advance to the final.  Iizuka remains the anchor of the Japanese men's 4x100 m relay team, but the team's hopes have been dimmed by the withdrawal of ace Ryota Yamagata (Keio Univ.) with a hamstring injury sustained in the 100 m heats.
