Mirna Sucely Ortiz Flores (born 28 February 1987) is a Guatemalan racewalker.

Having begun in the sport in 1998, she won a Central American youth title in 2000, and was a promising young athlete in her discipline, but due to financial hardship, she had to abandon the sport at the age of 14. She then returned to a competitive level in 2011, urged by coach Rigoberto Medina.[1] Her return proved to be fruitful as in September 2011 she went on to earn second place in the National Polish Championship in Varsovia, thereby qualifying to the 2012 Olympic Games,[2] and a few weeks later she won the Silver Medal at the 2011 Pan American Games, behind her compatriot Jamy Franco in a race they both led from start to end.

On 18 March 2012 she set the 20 km record for the North, Central American, and Caribbean region at 1:28:54 at the Memorial Mario Albisetti in Lugano, Switzerland,[3] where she came in second.

In the 2012 Olympic games in London she competed in the 20km walk along the other two women of the Guatemala racewalking team, Jamy Franco and Mayra Herrera but was disqualified after 8 km.

After the world championships that took place in Moscow in August 2013, she married racewalker Érick Barrondo.[4]
