2021 Women’s 20K Walk World Rankings

Antonella Palmisano strode to victory through the streets of Sapporo. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/PHOTO RUN)

NOT SURPRISINGLY, the Olympic order provided by the backbone in an event with few significant international meets outside the Games. But the Tokyo medalists each won a major race elsewhere to confirm their finish as Antonella Palmisano, Sandra Arenas & Hong Liu…

FOR PALMISANO it’s her first No. 1 ever and first appearance since ’18. Arenas previously reached a high of No. 5 in ’17 & ’19… The veteran Liu reached a milestone as her 11th appearance found her points total reaching 95, moving her past Yelena Nikolayeva’s 91 for the highest score ever…

YOU’LL NOTE THERE ARE NO 50K Rankings this year. With the event not being part of the Olympics on the women’s side there were no significant internationals. And with the event dropping down to 35K for both sexes next year, the brief history of women’s 50 racing has come to an end.
