Watch the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships on

Athletics Canada is happy to announce that the 2016 IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships will be streamed live on Saturday, May 7 beginning at 10:30 a.m. EDT.

Four of Canada’s best race walkers will compete in Rome, Italy with an eye on a podium finish in what will be the last major international competition for race walkers on the road to the Olympic Games.

Two years ago at this event the team missed a medal by a single point. The top three finishers that day—Ben Thorne, Inaki Gomez and Evan Dunfee all return to represent Canada, and are joined by Mathieu Bilodeau who recently went under the Olympic Games 50-kilometres race walk standard. The four men will compete in the 20-kilometres race walk event in Rome.
