2009 IAAF World Championships - 20km Men's Race Walk

Our trio's lead lasted through paced well through 5K, hitting and even 20:00 for the split. The pace quickened from there as the 2nd 5K was hit in 19:48 seeing Rubino take a slight lead with Brugnetti 1 second behind. Tysse hung close, a mere second back from Brugnetti.
