No Countdown For 72 Hours
Posted by ridor9th on August 16, 2008
For the next 72 hours (2PM EST 8/16 to 2PM EST 8/19), the tiny entries will not be part of the countdown as it will focus on my thoughts related to the sports within 2008 Beijing Olympics. Sometimes it will include Deaf-related issues. Sometimes it won’t.
Does anyone understand the rules of 20km race walk? I stared at the event last night around 3 AM and could not barely understand as I saw the leader of the pack being disqualified and lots of walkers were warned with yellow cards, and some subsequently were disqualified … I’m serious, these butts — they probably are solid as a rock.
I think it has something to do with the techniques of walking as to differ itself from the running. Whatever it is.
But the walkers are quite vicious. They snarl at each other, tossed water on themselves and others as well. I like to walk, but not that fast.
I swear that in New York City, many female senior citizens qualify for these 20km race walk!
