i dont know if this is the final field, but the composition of the elite field is surprising, with 7 japanese, 2 kenyans,
2 columbians 1 brazilian, 1 american, 1 australian and 0 ethiopians in the mens race.
mosop, hall, dos santos, wesley korir are the names in the mens race.
in the womens race shobukhova and fukushi is a good matchup.
interestingly there are no ethiopian or kenyan woman in the race (at least not yet).
