    Yes, what a terrific talent she is! She still has another year in the U20s to maybe have a crack at Linet Masai's U20 WR of 30:26.50.

      From the amateur video on YouTube her splits were 15:30/15:15 (2:59 for the last 1000 and 70 last lap).

      • Back on Reunion Island, Kevin Mayer contested the 110H and JT with promising results: 13.70 (0.8) and 69.33.

          Here is her last 1000m. Her form is so smooth.

            Yes, and her forward arm action is quite un-Japanese! Most of their female distance athletes swing their arms across their body in a pronounced manner. And then there's Yuka Ando ...

            • I've really been enjoying the new World Cross Country Tour. Having the Gold meetings live streamed on the WA YouTube channel hasn't yet materialised as promised (maybe they're working on that for next season) but it's still been possible to watch all the meetings so far, except for the Silver meeting in Tilburg. That Tour continues this Sunday at Venta de Banos in Spain.

              And the new World Race Walking Tour is taking shape nicely, set to start this weekend in Dublin.

              There's 15 meetings on the Race Walking Tour so far:

              Gold
              Podebrady (CZE)
              Warsaw (POL)
              Taicang (CHN)
              Dudince (SVK)
              Rio Maior (POR)
              La Coruna (ESP)
              Suzhou (CHN)

              Silver
              Montreuil (FRA)

              Bronze
              Dublin (IRL)
              Santee (USA)
              Antalya (TUR)
              Adelaide (AUS)
              Olomouc (CZE)
              Banska Bystrica (SVK)
              Borsky Mikulas (SVK)

              The calendar is at https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...endar-results?

              You'll see that the first 4 legs of the Tour are 3 national championships and the Oceania Championships but they're all Open meetings that allow international guests as well. That happens quite a bit in race walking due to the relatively limited international opportunities. For example, last year the Turkish Championships attracted some very good Ukrainians, Belarussians & Kazakhs. The Oceania RW Championships has had a number of South/Central Americans, Europeans and Canadians competing because they winter at the sports nutrition centre in Australia. Of course, COVID may mean that this is less the case for these coming meetings.

              I'm expecting at least 3 more events to be added to the Tour in due course. The old World Race Walking Challenge circuit had a Mexican meeting or two and due to the strength of race walking in Central & South America that region really needs a stop on the Tour. The Alytus meeting in Lithuania is also a quality meeting and I'd expect that to maybe get a Silver label. A couple of weeks ago the All Japan Walk meeting in Nomi was also on the Tour but has since disappeared off the list.
              As one of the homes of race walking Italy should really have a stop on the Tour - a few years ago they used to have a meeting on the World Challenge circuit but that meeting was discontinued.
              I'm also hoping that the Lugano (SUI) meeting is brought back into the fold after a few years off the World Challenge circuit.

              I don't anticipate that all the meetings will have wonderful live streaming but 2022 is set to be a bumper year for live Race Walking on our TV/computer screens, what with us also having the World Team RW Champs, the World Champs, Commonwealth Games, European Champs, World University Games, World U20s, South American Games and a few other very good meetings such as the Spanish & Japanese Champs, the South American RW Championships and the Ivano-Frankivsk meeting.

                      I seriously don't know where we are in the Walks in the OG/WC program now. Men do 20 and 50, but women only 35? If so, the m35W is . . . ?

                        No, the 50km has been abolished altogether. Now, men & women will do both the 20km & 35km.

                          Oh . . . it seems to me (who understands it, not at all) that there's a lot less difference between a good 20 Walker and a good 35 Walker than a 5/10 runner.

                            Yes, this is it.

                            When the 35km was proposed to replace the 50km the two main complaints from the Race Walking community were that:
                            a) They would no longer have the longest endurance event on the athletics program - a source of great pride for the walkers
                            b) The 20km & 35km are too similar, as I talked about a bit more at https://forum.trackandfieldnews.com/...71#post1731971

                              they'll both do the 20 and 35 in the WC, but has the IOC officially allowed the addition of the women's 35 for the Games?

                                No, they're talking about a mixed gender event in its place (4x10km relay??)

                                But as well as the WCh, the women will race the 20 and 35 at the Area championships and other championships such as the World Team RW Champs & the European Team RW Champs.
