Tyler Sorenson Sets 15 km Junior National Race Walk Record!

 

The Pacific Association is excited to announce our own Tyler Sorenson, 15 year old with Pleasanton Heat broke the USA Junior National Record for a 15K road race walk on May 17, 2009 at the Fairmount Park in Riverside, CA; winning the USATF West Region 15K Race Walk Championship.  Tyler used this race to help him prepare for the upcoming Junior National Championship in Eugene, OR next month.

His time of 1:12:57 broke the old record for 15 to 19 year olds set back in June 2004 by Troy Clark of the Maine Race Walkers. His record will be submitted for approval at the USATF Annual Meeting in Indianapolis in December.  Tyler set the National Youth Boy record for 3000m at last year’s National Junior Olympics.  Keep an eye on this young man as he continues his quest to be one of the top junior racewalkers in the country.
