Note:
(a) Mr Kawauki did not win Chicago Marathon held today (Sunday, Oct 7).

(b) Yūki "Kawauchi 川内 優輝, 31 [1987- ], works 40 hours a week in the administrative office of Kuki High School in his hometown, just north of Tokyo. As a government employee, he can keep his race winnings ($150,000 for Boston) and bonus money but is not permitted to accept corporate sponsorships * * * A bicycle inner tube suffices as resistance training for his legs."
(i)
(A) The ki is Chinese pronunciation of kanji 輝, so 李登輝 is pronounced in Japan as "ri tōki." (There is no symbol for l, only r, in Japanese romanization.)
(B) Th euchi is Japanese pronunciation of 内.
(ii) Kuki High School Kuki 埼玉県立久喜高等学校 (abbreviation: 久喜高校), Saitama 埼玉県 久喜市 (Saitama Prefecture 埼玉県 is the northern neighbor of Tokyo across the border.)

Kuki has several junion high schools 中学校 (for students aged 12-14 at the beginning of a school year), including 久喜市立久喜中学校. (Apparently a city runs junior high schools.)
(iii) Google (running A bicycle inner tube suffices as resistance training for his legs.) wihout quotation marks and you will learn it is a rope that links something (a inner tube or a trainer holding the runner back, say) with the runner

(c) "Given a chance by almost no one, he won the Boston Marathon [privately-operated 'Boston Athletic Association (BAA) has organized this event since 1897': Wikipedia] — the oldest and most prestigious of the world's annual marathons — in frigid temperatures, relentless wind and horizontal rain. * * * Kawauchi's mother, Mika 美加, a middle-distance runner and his first coach"
