Ewert, who recently claimed 5K and 10K American junior race walk records on the track, did her work on the road this time. She usurped the previous best of 23:44.00, which was set by Maria Michta-Coffey back in 2005. Ewert's latest achievement earned her the distinction of USATF Athlete of the Week.
The junior from Beavercreek also excels in cross country, the steeplechase and distance events. Her stellar resume includes a tenth place showing in the 10K race walk at the IAAF World U20 Championships, a victory in the 2K steeplechase at New Balance Nationals Outdoor and a first place showing in the 3200 at the DI OATCCC Indoor Championship, among others. The trio of accomplishments all took place in 2018.
