The tiny Ethiopian Shitaye Gemechu has been added to the women's field at tomorrow's Volkswagen Prague International Marathon, organizers said today. She will wear bib #1 despite the fact that she was fourth at the Tokyo Marathon just seven weeks ago.

Gemechu, 28, has a personal best time of 2:26:10 set in Paris in 2008. Her marathon victories include P.F. Chang's Rock 'N' Roll Phoenix (twice, in 2005 and 2006), Treviso (2007) and Amsterdam (2001).
