“After finishing last year’s world championships, there was someone who said, ‘Peres is over.

‘ Thanks to my friends,” he said.

Peres, who holds the world record of 2 hours 37 minutes and 15 seconds in the women’s 35 km walk,

will also participate in the 35 km event in Budapest.

Klavdiya Afanaseva (Russia), who holds the world record for women’s 35 km walk (2 hours 37 minutes 11 seconds),

was unable to participate in this event.

World Athletics Federation

The World Athletics Federation bans Russia and Belarus, which invaded Ukraine,

from participating in international competitions.

Initially, Perez was considered a candidate for victory in the 35km run, not the 20km racewalking,

but he said, “I was paying more attention to the 20km race walk. Participating in the 35km race is a

bonus.” I will try my best to win the 20km.”

Kimberly Garcia (29, Peru), who won two gold medals in walking (20 km and 30 km) at the Eugene World Championships last year, finished fourth with a time of 1 hour 27 minutes 32 seconds.

From 2009 to 2022, China, which produced 20km women’s walking medalists in seven consecutive competitions, ended up with a ‘no medal’ in this event.
