Mara Yamauchi

 

22 July 2011

UKA today announced the withdrawal of Mara Yamauchi from the women’s marathon team set to compete at the World Championships at Daegu, Korea, in August.

Yamauchi (coach: Shige Yamauchi) said of her withdrawal: “I am very disappointed to miss the World Championships in Daegu. I was hoping to be able to return to full fitness for the World Championships following a hamstring injury. Although I have made good progress, unfortunately I have lost too much training time to make a good performance in Daegu realistic.

“My top priority now is to return to full fitness and to qualify for 2012. I wish all the Aviva GB & NI athletes in Daegu the very best of luck.”
