Two Mexican athletes won gold medals at the World Race Walking Team Championships last weekend in Taicang, China.
On Sunday, Alegna Aryday González won the under-20 10-kilometer race, which the International Association of Athletics Federations described as a thrilling battle between González world champion Glenda Morejon of Ecuador, who finished second, and Nanako Fuji of Japan.
The Mexican athlete bettered her own North American U20 record with a time of 45:08.
The other gold medal went to María Guadalupe González Romero on Saturday in the women’s 20-kilometer race walk with a time of 1:26:38, beating Shijie Qieyang and Jiayu Yang, both from China.
