Summary

This was the first walking competition for women at the Olympics. The day was very hot. The favorite was 1991 World Champion Alina Ivanova who led the early sections. With one kilometer left, the women had to ascend the hill of Montjuíc to the Estadi Olímpic. Chen Yueling and Li Chunxiu of China had the lead over Ivanova and her teammate Yelena Nikolayeva. As they entered the tunnel to the stadium, Ivanova made up the deficit and took the lead. With 150 metres left, she “sprinted” for the finish, however, and was disqualified for her third warning for lifting. Chen held on for the gold medal, with Nikolayeva second and Li earning the bronze.
