Nearly 400 athletes descended upon east China’s Jiangsu Province for the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships Taicang 2018 from May 5 to 6. 

Wang Yingliu, a Chinese female athlete from Lincang in southwest Yunnan Province, won the gold medal of 20km walking race together with her teammates on May 5. 

Born in 1992, Wang Yingliu started her career as a professional athlete when she was a middle school student and after her PE teacher found her talent. In 2010, Wang was recruited by the Yunnan Provincial Women’s Track and Field Team. And seven years later, she became a member of the national team. For years, Wang has engaged in several international walking race competitions and won honourable rewards. 

Crowned as a world champion this time in Taicang, Jiangsu, she has made a record in the sports history of Lincang.
