Hoof Hearted Down the Back Stretch!

by Rob on April 30th, 2015

For those of you who were in my classes on Thursday and perhaps didn't believe me, Racewalking is in fact an Olympic sport.  If those grueling Olympic distances bore you then perhaps the USA Track & Field One Mile Racewalk National Championships is more your speed.

Since "holding" occurs on nearly every play in the NFL, but is only called a small percentage of the time, I guess it's understandable that just about every racewalker is in violation of their sport's primary rule in nearly every race.  I originally thought the referees were on scooters - it turns out they are stationary on foot... which makes this whole thing even funnier:
So, those of you who chose not to be part of the Kentucky Derby pageantry, do you still pick racewalking?

I was visiting Spain during the 2004 Olympics and one of the country's hottest athletes was a racewalker so that was on TV constantly and in all the newspapers. Such a riot.
