Eunice Jepkirui Kirwa of Bahrain will attempt to win her third consecutive Nagoya Women’s Marathon next month after she was named among the seven runners invited from overseas on Wednesday.

Kirwa, the Asian Games champion who came home in a time of 2 hours, 22 minutes, 40 seconds to win last year’s meet, is joined by 2013 world silver medalist Valeria Straneo of Italy among the seven foreign invitees for the March 12 race that starts and finishes at Nagoya Dome.
