World medalists Yamanishi and Kitaguchi on Japan's team for WCH Budapest 23

Two-time defending 20km race walk champion Toshikazu Yamanishi and world javelin bronze medalist Haruka Kitaguchi feature on Japan’s team for the World Athletics Championships Budapest 23.

Yamanishi won his first world gold in Doha in 2019 and retained his title in Oregon. He will be joined by Koki Ikeda, Eiki Takahashi and Yuta Koga in the men’s 20km race walk, which is the opening event of the championships on the morning of 19 August.

Kitaguchi finished third behind Kelsey-Lee Barber and Kara Winger in Oregon last year and goes into this year’s event as the women's world javelin leader thanks to the 67.04m national record she achieved in Silesia last month.

Other athletes on the team include national record-holders Shunsuke Izumiya in the 110m hurdles and Nozomi Tanaka in the 1500m and 5000m, plus Sumire Hata and Hiromichi Yoshida in the long jump.

After Budapest, Japan will host the next edition of the World Championships, in Tokyo in 2025.
