Japan’s Yuki Nakamura won the 10,000-meters to give Japan its only track and field gold as China continued its domination at the East Asian Games on Tuesday.

Nakamura beat South Korean Lee Du Haeng by the narrowest of margins in a race that only three runners competed in but Japan have a meager return of just three gold medals after four days of the nine-day games, two of them coming in a non-Olympic event.
