Stevens earns silver in race walk in Bahamas competition

VACAVILLE — Robyn Stevens won a silver medal at the North America, Central America and Caribbean Championships on Saturday in the Bahamas after a lengthy rest from the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

The 39-year-old Vacaville native completed the 20,000-meter race walk course in 1:40:47.16. First place went to Mirna Ortiz (1:40:04.78). Maria Michta-Coffey (1:42:14.32) and Stephanie Casey (1:44:07.48) of the United States finished third and fourth, respectively.

“Considering I took three full weeks off, and just moved across the country, and my coach gave me a last minute training of only two weeks . . . I’m content . . . but given the year and how it’s ended up with all the politics, not bad,” she said of her finish.

Stevens filed a lawsuit in June against U.S. Track and Field for excluding her from 35k in Eugene, even though she had an automatic qualifying time and just received notice that her sexual abuse case concerning a past coach has moved forward with disciplinary actions against him. She still has the qualifying mark for the 2023 Worlds, scheduled for Budapest, Hungary.

Stevens was the top American finisher in Eugene and was 24th overall in the 20k race walk.

Her planned upcoming races will be Sept. 11 at the Pacific Association Grand Prix Championship 20k Race Walks in Carmichael, and the 5k USATF Race Walk Championships, Sept. 25, at Harry Wright Lake, Whiting, New Jersey.
