Athletics at the 1995 Pan American Games – Women's 10,000 metres walk

The women's 10,000 metres walk event at the 1995 Pan American Games was held in Mar del Plata on 21 March.[1][2] This was the last time that this distance was held at the Pan American Games, later replaced by 20 kilometres.

In hot conditions, the Americans and Mexicans separated from the rest of the field. Martínez was the first to fall off the back. With 800 metres to go, Vaill was disqualified, 200 meters later, Rohl received her second card and she slowed, effectively handing the victory to Mendoza.[3]
