An intense thunderstorm hit the second day of the 2014 Japanese National University Track and Field Championships, impacting events across the board increasingly heavily before causing the postponement of both the men's and women's 5000 m races until the next day.  Of the events that did go down, the performance of the day came in the women's hammer throw, where Hitomi Katsuyama (Tsukuba Univ.) threw 60.70 m for the win, missing the championships record by just 8 cm but beating her own best by over a meter.



Sprints led the day's other highlights, with 100 m London Olympian Ryota Yamagata (Keio Univ.) ran 10.20 into a -0.4 m/s headwind for the win in the absence of rival Yoshihide Kiryu (Toyo Univ.), who led the 200 m qualifying heats in 20.60 (-1.0) but expressed dissatisfaction with his ability to cope with the rising wind.



Yamagata also led Keio to a 5th-place finish in the men's 4x100 m, where Chuo University upset sub-39 qualifying round leader Waseda University with a big run from anchor Yu Onabuta to take the national title in 39.03 by a margin of just 0.07 seconds.



Anna Fujimori did double duty for Aoyama Gakuin University, leading the women's 100 m in 11.83 (-1.3) before returning less than two hours later to anchor Aoyama Gakuin to the 4x100 win in 45.63.



The National University Championships wrap up Sunday, with the early morning addition of the rescheduled men's and women's 5000 m making for a long and packed day.
