Danielle Kirk : Olympic – hopeful racewalker
January 23, 2000 US WALKERS REWRITE RECORD BOOK
Someone is going to have to print a new edition of the racewalk handbook. That’s because four of its American records were broken today (1-23) during the “Road to Sydney” 30km/20km race at the ARCO Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. Atlanta Olympian Curt Clausen was the biggest winner of the day, breaking the 2-hour record and the 30 km record while winning the latter in a time of 2 hours, 11 minutes, 0.4 seconds. ARCO resident Andrew Hermann finished second (2:12:31.4), but was leading at 25 km, so that record is now his. Danielle Kirk got the fourth and final new record (1:39:27).
