Breaking Down the Potential Japanese Team in Paris pt. 3 – Brett Larner – Japan Running News

By GRR 0
An update on standings for Japan’s potential team at this summer’s Paris Olympic Games a week out from the National Track and Field Championships. Final team nomination in most cases depends on a top 3 finish there, but as of this writing events where Japan could or will field three athletes having cleared the Olympic standard are the men’s 110 mH, men’s 400 mH, men’s 20 kmRW and women’s marathon.
Other events that will or are likely to have a complete squad of three athletes include the men’s 100 m, men’s 200 m, men’s 400 m, men’s high jump, men’s marathon, women’s 5000 m, women’s 10000 m, women’s javelin throw, and women’s 20 kmRW.
Main changes from last week:
  • Women’s pole vault NR holder Misaki Morota won at the Harry Jerome Track Classic at 4.28 m, improving her spot in the Paris quota from 32nd to 31st.
  • Momone Ueda won the Asian Throwing Championships women’s javelin throw at 61.32 m, moving up from 23rd to 22nd.
  • Nagisa Takahashi took 2nd in the NYC Grand Prix women’s high jump with a 1.87 m clearance, but only moved from 36th to 35th outside the Paris quota of 32.
  • Yuki Joseph Nakajima won the New Life Invitational men’s 400 m in 45.49 but dropped from 41st to 42nd in the quota of 48.
  • 10000 m national champion Jun Kasai was bumped out of the quota of 27 by Switzerland’s European champ Dominic Lobalu, then fell to 29th when Eritrean Merhawi Mebrahtu cleared the Olympic standard in Spain. Lone remaining Japanese man Tomoki Ota was also bumped down from 25th to 26th.
