Canadian Olympic race walker Evan Dunfee is back to tell us how race walking works. Really -- we actually get into the sport this week (though don't count out novela talk)!
Evan talks about the mechanics of the sport, the discrepancy between TV cameras and judges' human eyes, and possible career opportunities once he ends his pro racing career. Oh, a little Rule 50 chat, just for fun.
What are our TKFLASTANIs up to this week? A LOT! We've got news from:
Throughout 2021 we're revisiting great stories from Atlanta 1996! For our Atlanta 1996 moment this week, we discuss the race walking competitions--a women's distance that's no longer contested, an amazing win in the men's 20K and a men's 50K racer with a training plan we can get behind.
We also have Games Updates from:
