That was the finishing time posted by Francisco Javier Fernandez in a 10,000 meter race walk.  It’s the new world record for such distance as it improved on the previous world record by 5 seconds. 10,000 meters is 10 kilometers right?  So, it appears that Francisco’s walk pace averaged less than 4 minutes per kilometer.  I can’t even run that fast 🙂  Wow.

Double cheers!!!



  1. Thats crazy fast… I wonder how it feels when someone walks pass you while your racing your guts out to the finish.. hehe
