2021 Men’s 50K Walk World Rankings

Dawid Tomala will go into the history books as the final Olympic 50K gold medalist. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/PHOTO RUN)

WELCOME TO THE FINAL YEAR of Rankings at the 50K distance. Starting next year for its long walk the World Championships will instead contest the 35K (21.75M), for both men and women…

EVEN MORE THAN IN THE 20, the Olympic results didn’t remotely follow form, with our podium choices ending up in 6th (Masatora Kawano), 28th (Yadong Luo) and 32nd (yearly list leader Satoshi Maruo)…

FASTEST THROUGH THE STREETS of Sapporo was unexpected Pole Dawid Tomala, just 24th on the yearly list coming in. His winning time, 3:50:08, was the slowest since ’92, just like in the 20K.
