The organisers of the Nagoya Women's Marathon on 14 March have announced that Ayuko Suzuki, a member of Japan's marathon team for this summer's Tokyo Olympics, has withdrawn due to inflammation of a tendon in her left leg.

Nagoya was to be Suzuki’s first marathon since finishing second at the Marathon Grand Championship Olympic trials race in September 2019. Suzuki suffered injury last year as well but was able to run the 5th Stage at November’s National Corporate Women’s Ekiden, helping her team to a second national title.

Translator’s note: The other two members of the Tokyo Olympics women’s marathon squad, trials winner Honami Maeda and women-only marathon NR holder Mao Ichiyama both ran Osaka in January. On the men’s side trials winner Shogo Nakamura withdrew from last weekend’s Lake Biwa Marathon with injury and second-placer Yuma Hattori withdrew from December’s Fukuoka International Marathon. Third team member Suguru Osako hasn’t run a marathon since breaking the national record at last March’s Tokyo Marathon.
