Hosoda Takes 10000 m Bronze - Taipei Universiade Athletics Day One Japanese Results



Ai Hosoda became the first Japanese medalist of the Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade, winning bronze in the women's 10000 m to wrap the first day of athletics competition.


Leading the field with a sub-32 best, 19-year-old Yuki Munehisa led the first 9000 m on the race before being overtaken by Daria Maslova (Kyrgyszstan),  Sanjivani Jadhav (India) and Hosoda. On the last lap Maslova kicked away to gold in 33:19.27 less than 3 seconds ahead of Jadhav, with Hosoda 6 seconds behind for bronze. Munehisa fell to 4th, with third team member Natsuki Sekiya, a favorite to medal in the 5000 m, off her game at 12th in 35:21.19.


With the rest of the day devoted to qualifying rounds Hosoda's medal was the day's only take for Japan. London World Championships men's 4x100 m bronze medalist Shuhei Tada easily made it through to the semifinals, winning both his heat and quarterfinal and running the fastest quarterfinal time of the day with a 10.29 (0.0 m/s). Teammate Yusuke Tanaka made it to the quarterfinals but did not advance to the semis. Likewise for the two women in the 100 m, Miyu Maeyama and Ichiko Iki. In the men's 400 m, London team member Takamasa Kitagawa was eliminated in the heats, his 47.85 the fastest time not to make the semifinals.


In jumps and throws every Japanese athlete made it through the qualifying rounds. Triple jumper Ryoma Yamamoto was the only man to clear the 16.50 autoqualifying mark, his jump of 16.65 m ranking him 1st going into the final. Haruka Kitaguchi led her qualifying group in the women's javelin throw with a throw of 57.96 m, ranking her 3rd behind the top two from the other group. Marina Saito was 3rd in that group with a throw of 57.24 m to join Kitaguchi in the final. Kunihiro Sumi also advanced in the men's hammer throw, marking 60.21 m.

Weekend Overseas Japanese Results

Lost in the luminosity of Eliud Kipchoge's world record and Gladys Cherono's women's course record at the Berlin Marathon were a score of Japanese results there and elsewhere overseas, ranging from the sparkling to the dull. Cherono and 2nd and 3rd placers Ruti Aga and Tirunesh Dibaba all broke Mizuki Noguchi's Berlin Marathon course record of 2:19:12 which has stood since she set that national record mark in 2005.

A kilometer behind Dibaba, Mizuki Matsuda (Daihatsu) followed up her 2:22:44 debut in Osaka in January with a 2:22:23 PB for 5th, making her just the fourth Japanese woman ever to break 2:23 twice in her career. 2:23:46 woman Honami Maeda (Tenmaya) ran 2:25:23 for 7th, beating Tenmaya teammate Rei Ohara whose 2:27:28 put her only 10th but qualified her for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics marathon trials, only the second athlete after 2018 Boston Marathon winner Yuki Kawauchi (Saitama Pref. Gov't) to qualify for the trials under the two-race average wildcard opt…

Kazami Breaks 100 km World Record at Lake Saroma

Running on the same course where Japan's Takahiro Sunada set the road 100 km world record of 6:13:33 twenty years ago, 2:17:23 marathoner Nao Kazamibested a deep and competitive field to win the Lake Saroma 100 km Ultramarathon in a world record 6:09:14.

Part of a front group of at least five that went through the marathon split in 2:33:36, on pace for 6:04:01, Kazami lost touch with the lead as rivals Koji Hayasaka and Takehiko Gyoba surged just before halfway to open a roughly 30 second lead that lasted until nearly 75 km. But in the last quarter of the race Kazami, a graduate of Hakone Ekiden powerhouse Komazawa University, was the only one who could sustain anything close to the early pace, overtaking Hayasaka and Gyoba before pulling away to open a lead of over 11 minutes. Kazami's mark took more than 4 minutes off the world record, and he also bettered the 100 km track world record of 6:10:20 set in 1978 well before he was born by the late Don Ritchie.
