These are the official results of the Women's 20 km Walk at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. The race was held on 28 September 2000.

The women’s walk distance was moved up to 20 kilometers in 2000. The favorite was 1999 World Champion Liu Hongyu of PR China. She led the race through 15 kilometres, but was then disqualified. The silver medalist from 1996 in the 10 km, Elisabetta Perrone (Italy) then went ahead, but also received a red flag. This left Australia’s Jane Saville in the lead, which she held to the stadium track but there, she too, was disqualified. This left Wang Liping in first place on the track and she won by a margin of almost 30 seconds.



This was the standing world record prior to the 2000 Summer Olympics.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
