IAAF org: One woman show by Shibui? - Nagoya Women’s Marathon PREVIEW

Japanese qualifying race for their women’s marathon team for the World Championships in Helsinki, will be held on 13 March

The 2005 Nagoya International Women’s Marathon, the final .
The Nagoya Women’s Marathon is an elite marathon, where runners must qualify by running either 3:15 marathon, 2:13 30km, 1:30 half marathon, 1:25 20km or 38 minutes 10,000 m.

Fastest marathon runner
Thus Shibui, the fastest marathon runner as well as the fastest 10,000m runner in the field, is a prohibitive favourite. She set a national marathon record, 2:19:41, in the 2004 real,- BERLIN-MARATHON, a World marathon debut best ever time of 2:23:11 at the 2001 Osaka Ladies Marathon, and a national 10,000m record, 30:48.89, at the 2002 Cardinal Invitational in Stanford.
