John Cody's Race Walking Career

It was my college experience that changed my view of race walk. What started off as a means to an end and a very goofy looking event, turned into a passion and a primary focus in my life.

Following my collegiate career, I have represented the US in Chile at the Pan American Cup, and competed for Team USA in the World Cup in Italy. Along with finishing top five at the 2013, 2014, and 2015 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, and winning the USA 5k Race Walk Championships in both 2015 and 2017.

My greatest accomplishment, however, is qualifying and competing in the 2016 US Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. That was one of the most exciting experiences of my life and has propelled me forward to dream bigger and set higher goals.
