New World Record at Asian 20km Race Walk Championships 2015

>> March 15, 2015

Japan's Yusuke Suzuki has broken the World record of the men's 20km race walking during the 2015 Asian Race walk championships today (15 March 2015) at Nomi City, Japan. The 27-year-old three-time Asian champion clocked a time of 1:16:36 which is also the 'first ever legal sub-1:17 performance', and exactly one-minute faster than Asian record held by China's Wang Zhen. France's Yohan Diniz set the previous World record 1:17:02 at his hometown only last week, and has not even been ratified. Prior to this race, Suzuki had a fastest time over the distance of 1:18:13 that he recorded exactly a month ago in Kobe, Japan. South Korea's defending and two-time Asian champion was in second with a new national record of 1:19:13.
