As the 35 km race walk had its debut at Munich 2022 both winners ended up with a “CR”, though neither time will be easy to beat in upcoming years.
Meanwhile, two athletes in the men’s discus are upping one another contently. In the qualifying Kristjan Čeh threw 69.06 m but his record didn’t hold long because Mykolas Alekna won gold with a new record of 69.78 m.
On top of his double double Jacob Ingebrigsten finished the 1500m final in a record time of 3:32.76 min.
Over double the distance and including obstacles Luiza Gega of Albania pushed not only herself but also Germany’s Lea Meyer to go sub the old championship record from 2010, winning the steeplechase race in 9:11.31 min.
