2019 Women’s 20K Walk World Rankings

Hong Liu added another gold to the one she had won at the ’15 World Championships. (MARK SHEARMAN)

AFTER SITTING OUT 2 YEARS after having a child, Hong Liu returned to where she left off, adding to her No. 1s of ’15 and ’16. She had a bit of a down period mid-year, twice falling to 3rd, but her convincing win in Doha put her over the top…

CHINA SWEPT THE WC MEDALS, Liu being joined on the podium by Shenjie Qieyang and Liujing Yang, who also ended up 2-3 in the Rankings. That gave China the first ever 1-2-3 by one nation… China ended up with half the spots as Zhenxia Ma and Jiayu Yang rated Nos. 8 and 10…

MARIA MICHTA-COFFEY’S string of U.S. No. 1s ended at 9, but that’s understandable, given that she gave birth in June. Amazingly, she managed to finish 35th at the WC in September. “The female body is an amazing thing,” she said.
