Lake Biwa Mainichi Marathon Elite Field

Coming proper after the announcement of elite box for the Mar. eight Nagoya Women’s Marathon is the announcement for its male counterpart, the Lake Biwa Mainichi Marathon previous the similar day. Like Nagoya it is the closing likelihood for somebody to make the 2020 Olympic group. All they’ve to do is damage the two:05:50 nationwide document, or regardless of the quickest Japanese guy runs on the Tokyo Marathon every week previous if somebody there is going higher than 2:05:50.

Basically it is not going to occur. Takuya Noguchi (Konica Minolta) is the one Japanese man at Lake Biwa below 2:09 within the closing 3 years, and he hasn’t been himself since his 2:08:59 win on the 2017 Gold Coast Marathon. There’s no scarcity of other people across the 2:09 to two:10 degree, however out of them the one person who may conceivably have the type of step forward it might take to make the Olympic group is Kengo Suzuki (Fujitsu).

At the MGC Race 2020 Olympic marathon trials closing September Suzuki was once the fellow who performed domestique to eventual winner Shogo Nakamura (Fujitsu), losing the 14:48 cut up from 15 to 20 km that were given the chase pack transferring and wearing it over many of the 2d part sooner than completing seventh. He can do higher evidently, however higher sufficient?

Like Nagoya, Lake Biwa has a pint-sized cartel of internationals situated at simply the proper degree to tempo a hypothetical Japanese guy to an Olympic-qualifying mark. In this example it is closing yr’s Buenos Aires Marathon winner Evans Chebet (Kenya) at 2:05:00, adopted intently via double Felixes below 2:06, Felix Chemonges (Uganda) and Felix Kiprotich (Kenya). And once more like Nagoya, there is a thick cushioning layer underlying that within the 2:06 to two:08 vary the place the highest Japanese guy is in all probability to land. Also of hobby are Byambajav Tseveenravdan (Mongolia), who simply ran 2:09:03 in Beppu-Oita previous this month, and the debuting Patrick Mwaka (Aisan Kogyo), recent off a 1:00:53 PB on the National Corporate Half Marathon Championships closing weekend.
