Race walkers from Mordovia State University dominate at IAAF World Championships, Moscow 2013!

20 km women's race walk gathered 62 athletes. The Olympic champion and World record holder Yelena Lashmanova (a student of Biology faculty), European medallist Vera Sokolova and World medallist Anisya Kirdyapkina (a student of Economics faculty) were in the second group, but by the 11th km they caught the leaders. Little by little Lashmanova and Kirdyapkina started to get away. Lashmanova entered the Arena first, but mistakenly stopped after crossing the finish line, while she had to do another lap. She resumed walking and finished first - 1:27:09! Kirdyapkina placed second - 1:27:11. The bronze was won by China's Liu Hong - 1:28:10.

Rector of the University Sergey Vdovin, President of the University Nikolay Makarkin, the University Senate, teaching staff and numerous student body congratulate Yelena and Anisya heartily on their double win and wish them health, vigour and further victories!
