RE: The video that ends race walking?
I find any competition that requires some form of self-imposed restriction to be really dumb. Its like doing the butterfly in swimming. Its not the fastest way to go, so why do we compete that way? How ridiculous would it be if there was a 100m race in running where all the athletes were forbidden from swinging their arms? Or one where you have to hop on one leg?

Like running a sertain distance, but wait, you have to jump hurdles along the way? Or jumping as far as you can, but you must make certain strides before actually jumping? There are several odd events in track and field, not just racewalking.
