India's KT Irfan clocked an impressive 1:20:59 to win bronze in the 20 km men's event at the ongoing Asian Racewalking Championships in Japan on Sunday.

Irfan's timing came close to his national record-setting timing of 1:20.21 during the 2012 London Olympics, where he eventually finished tenth.

Korea's Kim Hyun-Sub took the gold in 1:19:50 while Georgiy Sheiko of Kazakhstan bagged the silver in 1:20:47.

27-year-old Irfan had won the National Race Walking Championships held in New Delhi in February, clocking 1:22:43.48. He has already qualified for the World Championships in London in August.

In the women's 20km event, India's Priyanka finished fourth with a time of 1:37:42.

China's Wang Na won the gold medal with an effort of 1:30:51. Japan's Kumiko Okada finished second in 1:33:31 while Yeongeun Jeon of Korea took the third place in 1:34:35.
