We move to Japan today and the track found at Kitakami Stadium. This was the site the 2014 Asian Masters Athletics Championships that were held just this week. This stadium opened in 1997. The track looks really nice with the red surface, which is surrounded by the green synthetic surface. This looks to be a fairly new surface as well as the one on the second track to the east. The stadium is used mostly for athletics and has a seating capacity of 22,000. Meet results can be found HERE. A nice photo gallery of the meet can be found on Facebook HERE. 90-year old Yoshimitsu Miyauchi set age-group world record in the 800m, 1500m and 5,000m. Hidekichi Miyazaki was the oldest competitor at the age of 104!
