It is less than one month left to the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships in Rome, the former World Cup where the strongest racewalkers of the world will compete.
The 2015 50 km World Champion, Matej Toth, will not be present though. The Slovak got injured to the tibia and had to slow down his preperation. Now he feels much better but having skipped most of his trainings he prefers not to risk taking part to the competion.
The gold medal won during Bejing World Championships also represented the first world title won by Slovakia in the World Championships: the racewalker had also won a golden medal to the Racewalk World Cup in 2010 and one in the Racewalk European Cup in 2011.
