29/11/2019   Yusuke Suzuki male athlete of the year in the survey of Marcia dal Mondo






Two months ago we launched a survey among our readers with the aim of knowing their idea on the best walkers of the year 2019 proposed by Marcia dal Mondo.

 
We now wish to recall that in men we proposed the following eight athletes
 
- Wang Kaihua (CHN)
- Koki Ikeda (JPN)
- Yusuke Suzuki (JPN)
- Toshikazu Yamanishi (JPN)
- Perseus Karlstrom (SWE)
- Evan Dunfee (CAN)
- Massimo Stano (ITA)
- Alvaro Martin (ESP)
 
Although the public survey launched on Social Networks has been viewed by over 110 people, the same has been answered only by less than 30 readers who have expressed themselves as follows:
 
Yusuke Suzuki (JPN): votes 27
Perseus Karlstrom (SWE): votes 12
Toshikazu Yamanishi (JPN): votes 5
Evan Dunfee (CAN): 4 votes
Massimo Stano (ITA): votes 1
Alvaro Martin (ESP): votes 1
Wang Kaihua (CHN): without votes
Koki Ikeda (CHN): without votes
 
 
Marcia dal Mondo then contacted about thirty walking experts from the following IAAF geographical areas, receiving a positive response to the survey by:
 
- Europe: 11 experts
- Asia: 3 experts
- Oceania: 1 experts
- NACAC: 1 expert
 
and which represent the following categories:
 
- Coaches: 9 experts
- Athletes and former athletes: 2 experts
- Judges: 2 experts
- Journalists and media: 3 experts
 
We just want to remind our readers that one of the last experts who wanted to participate in the survey, and we remember it with a certain emotion, was Elio Locatelli, a figure recognized all over the world who died this week.
 
The results of the expert survey were as follows:
