Important Decision at the Olympics! Traditional Olympic Event Suspended to Promote Gender Equality!
The 50 km walk, which is one of the challenging parts of the Olympics, ends today after the event to support gender equality. If you want proof of how different the Olympics can be, look no further than the 50km walk.
While this may seem amusing to many at first, it usually passes and after a few hours the audience starts to fall asleep as they get bored.
While purists love the simplicity of the sport, the athletes involved are absolute examples.
To give an example, let's take the world record holder of French origin Yohann Diniz, who completed the 50 km to miles in just three hours and 30 minutes in 2011.
Athletes sweat so much at the end of this grueling process that it is unusual to see them being carried away in wheelchairs.
But that all ends today as the 50km racewalk event begins in Tokyo.
The Olympic committee said the race was not upholding its said gender equality mission.
“There's no hope on this issue, and unless the drastic U-turn takes place on the road and the 50K champion will be the 20th and final in an incredible series,” he stated.
“Unfortunately, to get the names of all previous winners, you have to go to the 'paused events' list.
“The event was filled with all these brave men for many years to come. He ran 'up' on the roads of the Olympic cities to LA, Berlin, London, Helsinki. These include Rome, Tokyo, Mexico City, Munich, Moscow, Seoul, Barcelona, Atlanta, Athens and Beijing.
“Honestly, they loved every step of their long journey. They loved to tell people that their event was 'the longest and most difficult'. And now it is explained to them to 'take a walk' for this effort.
