Overview by IAAF   EDMONTON STADIUM 
The race comprised nine laps of a circuit adjacent to the Commonwealth Stadium. Defending Champion Markov led through 5Km in 20:14, and the leader at halfway was another Russian, Vladimir Andreyev. He was later disqualified and Markov was in front again at 15Km, by which the leading pack was down to 11 men. The pace got progressively faster and former World Junior Champion Rasskazov got clear, pursued by 18 year-old Burayev. Markov was third, and the top non-Russian, Deakes, lost touch in the last kilometre. In the stadium, it was clear there world be a Russian sweep of the medals. Markov overtook Burayev in the last 300m but left it too late to catch Rasskazov.
 The Men's 20 km Walk at the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada was held on Saturday August 4, 2001, with the start at 15:50h.

The men’s shorter walking event produced the first sweep of these World Championships, as Russia's Roman RASSKAZOV, Ilya MARKOV and Viktor BURAYEV took gold, silver and bronze. Always known as a walking power, Russia was still not expected to produce this kind of result.
Just like in the championship's opening event, the men’s marathon, the battle to become world champion was only decided inside the stadium. The Russian trio were together until only a few hundred metres from the stadium when RASSKAZOV took the lead. At that stage BURAYEV, only 18 years old, was giving chase with the reigning world champion, MARKOV, in third place. MARKOV made his move as he entered the stadium, accelerating past BURAYEV and reducing some of RASSKAZOV’s lead.
MARKOV made an early move while the walkers were still in the stadium at the start of the race, and took a healthy lead to the streets of Edmonton. On the road, however, the chasing pack quickly caught MARKOV.
One of the race favourites, Andreas ERM (GER), called it a day before the walkers reached the half way point, when there were still 21 in the leading group. Another Russian, Vladimir ANDREYEV, was disqualified soon afterwards, and several other walkers were dropped from the leading group between 10km and 15km. Artur MELESKEVICH (BLR) was disqualified and Aigars FADEJEVS (LAT) did not continue the race.
MARKOV returned to the front after 15km with 11 competitors in the leading group, and 1996 Olympic champion Jefferson PEREZ of Ecuador just outside the pack.
It was at this point that the Russian trio started to gain speed and when Yevgeniy MISYULYA (BLR) was disqualified it left only Australia's Nathan DEAKES with the Russians, followed by the Spaniards Francisco FERNANDEZ and David MARQUEZ. With only 3km to go, FERNANDEZ was disqualified. And when his countryman MARQUEZ droppied back only DEAKES was left to battle with the Russian trio.
At the death, the 22 year-old world record holder, Roman RASSKAZOV, added the World Championship gold to his resumee.
