After a challenging early season where Evan never able to show his full capabilities, Evan put it all together for the Men’s 20km walk at the NACAC Championships. It was smart racing that gave Evan the edge. Evan’s main challenger got off to a very fast start in the high altitude, high heat event, stretching his lead to more than 200m at one point. Knowing that 20km is a long distance and that the race is one at the finish line, Evan bided his time and conserved his energy. By the half way point Evan had pulled even with his now struggling competitor. After this point Evan steadily pulled away ending the race with a very convincing margin of victory.
Having the NACAC 20km Championship in his pocket to go along with the collection of Canadian Nationals Championships Evan will now turn his hand to the somewhat more challenging 50km distance. He hopes to debut later this season at the US 50km Trials for next year’s World Championships in Moscow.
