DHARAMSHALA, August 6: A 22-year-old Tibetan girl is all set to walk a path which no Tibetan has ever taken before. Come August 11, Choeyang, will become the first ever Tibetan Olympiad.

Born in Tsochang in the traditional Tibetan province of Amdo, Choeyang will debut at the ongoing London Olympics in the 20 km Women’s Race Walking event.

Currently ranked 10th in the world, Choeyang will be competing with some of the biggest names in the sports.

Born on November 11, 1990, the Tibetan walking wonder began race walking in 2008. Two years later, she was selected in the Chinese national team.

One of her better international performances came last year when she came fifth at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics in Daegu, Korea.

But her career best performance came this year at the Taicang IAAF Race Walking Challenge held in March.

She completed the 20 km walk race in 1 hour, 27 minutes and 4 seconds.

With the World Record standing at 1:25:08 and the Olympics Record at 1:26:31, Choeyang is in walking distance of securing a podium finish.

The 20 km race walk event will begin at 17:00 hrs (local time) on August 11. The athletes will begin the race from The Mall and go around the Queen Victoria Memorial, completing 10 laps of the 2km course.
