Daegu, Korea - Susana Feitor will be setting a record next Wednesday (31 August) in Daegu, just by taking her first steps in the women’s 20Km Race Walk, marking an unprecedented 11th appearance at the IAAF World Championships.


Not that she’s looking to stop, now she’s enjoying it.

Since Berlin 2009, the 36-year-old Portuguese race walker jointly has the most appearances at ten with German discus thrower Franka Dietzsch, having competed in every World Championships since 1991. Her career highlight during that time being the bronze medal she won at Helsinki in 2005.

Russian dominance of the podium places may well continue, but Feitor is looking forward with enthusiasm, intending to match her achievements and renew rivalries that helped inspire others to follow.
