1. Yuki Kawauchi (b.1987)
Yuki Kawauchi(in red singlet, green shorts) is a Japanese marathon runner. He came to prominence after running the 2011 Tokyo Marathon in 2:08:37, finishing as the first Japanese and third overall. He is known as the “citizen runner” given that he works full-time for the government of Saitama Prefecture and trains in his time off with his own expenses without any sponsorship.
Kawauchi is also a frequent competitor, entering many races each year, much more than other professional runners.
I saw him at the starting line of Osaka Marathon, 2011 and took this picture.
