Gritty Performance at Pan Am Games 2015
(Toronto Canada, July 19, 2015) - Fresh from a first place finish three weeks ago at the USATF Outdoor Championships; elite race walker Miranda Melville turned in a gritty performance at the Pan Am Games 20km Race Walk competition in Toronto Canada. The hot and very humid conditions made for a demanding 12.4 mile race, in which Miranda finished a solid 10th place.
Stay tuned for Melville's last race of this pre-Olympic season, on August 28th in Beijing China, where the USA Champion will compete on the world stage.
Two-time Olympian and Coach Tim Seaman said "Miranda should be very proud of her 10th place finish, she had a solid race at Pan Am Games and is ready for the IAAF World Championships on August 28th in Beijing China.
