Summary

The top women's walker for the past few years had been Russian Olga Kaniskina. She was the defending champion and had won the World Championships in 2007, 2009, and 2011. The London race was expected to be between her and her youthful teammate, 20-year-old Yelena Lashmanova. That was how it worked out as the two separated themselves from the pack, with only China's Qieyang Shenjie staying with them near the end. After 19 km Kaniskina seemed to have the race in hand, leading and in control, but it was Lashmanova who finished fastest and came down the 10th lap of the race to win in 1-25:02, seven seconds ahead of Kaniskina, setting an Olympic and world record in the process. Lashmanova's final lap of 8:07 was the fastest split of the race. Qieyang won bronze, followed by her teammate Liu Hong in fourth. The fifth-place finisher was Russian Anisya Kirdyapkina, whose husband, Sergey Kirdyapkin, had just won the 50 km walk that morning.
