Japanese runners barred from participating in Beijing Marathon amid islands spat

Asia, Sun, 11 Nov 2012 ANI

Beijing, Nov. 11 (ANI): Japanese runners have apparently been barred from registering for the Beijing Marathon to be held on November 25.

The organizer has removed Japan from the nationalities listed on the application form on its official website.

According to the Japan Times, while the reasons behind the move are unknown, it could be another retaliatory step by Beijing against Tokyo's nationalization of the Senkaku Islands, which are claimed by China.

While Japanese firms helped sponsor last year's race, none are listed on the organizer's website this year, the report added. (ANI)
