Like every year in this period in Canberra at the Australian Institute of Sport the Supernova project is taking place now at its fourth edition.

As usual, the project also includes some official track events in particular on the distance of 10,000m for both men and women.
Today there was a mixed race that saw as many as 34 athletes (between men and women) at the start.
10.000m men's track walk
A "parterre de roi" the names of the athletes participating in the project Supernova 4, among which we want to remember Perseus Karlstrom (SWE), Mauricio Arteaga (ECU), Eider Arevalo (COL), Yerko Araya (CHI) in addition to the "aficionanos" Evan Dunfee (CAN), Isamu Fujisawa (JAP), Marius Zuikas (LTU), Quentin Rew (NZL)
He had no problems winning Perseus Karlstrom (SWE), the author of a great time 38:52.76.
This time is not very far from the athlete's personal best (38:39.28 obtained last Sep. 1 in Tampere in Finland for the Finnkampen), which is also Sweden's national record.
Second place to Mauricio Arteaga (ECU) in 40:16.25
Third place to Yerko Araya (CHI) who finished the race in 41:03.59 and who just got off the Berlin World Champion 2017, Eider Arevalo (COL) (41:04.03)
