26 JUN  COURSE RECORD

     More fun take-aways:

     NICK (29-years-old)

  • 1:30:48 GOLD

  • First Olympic Trials GOLD (Nick grabbed the Bronze at the 2016 and 2012 T&F Olympic Trials;  Silver at the 2016 50km Olympic Trials and Bronze at the 2020 50km Olympic Trials)

  • Lapped the entire field except for the 2nd and 3rd place male finishers and the women’s winner, Robyn Stevens, whom he finally caught as he finished and she began her bell lap. :-P

  • Nick’s margin of victory: a 1 min 11 seconds lead over second place Olympic Trials first-timer finisher, Dan Nehnevaj

  • Nick is the first Missouri Baptist University Spartan to qualify for the Olympic Games in Race Walking 

  • Nick is the first Olympian for Cuyamaca Community College

     NICK & ROBYN

  • Probably the most remarkable occurrence of the day and entire 2020 Olympic Trials in Eugene-Springfield is when Men’s winner, Nick Christie, and Women’s winner, Robyn Stevens, broke his finish tape together as he finished for the men and she began her bell lap. Nick and Robyn not only won their race, broke his finish tape together, and are training partners—they are life partners! This is both their first Olympic Trials GOLD and they’ll be experiencing their first Olympic Team at the Tokyo Olympics TOGETHER. 

  • Nick and Robyn are both former Spartans but of different schools!
