    Primarily because there is no disputing those are 'pure' strokes. Race Walking isn't really walking - I mean what is it really? As Cevbro stated both their feet are in the air on the slow mos. Therefore it is some form of running really.

    And yet they disqualify peeps for running during each event.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    No denying that. My comment was just in response to GIMH's point about walking being a daft sport because its slower than running.

    Was I the only one that thought Daemon was on about chucking javelins at running horses?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    The keirin would be so much better if it was like Capture the Flag. Whoever crosses the finish line on the stupid ****ing bike at the front wins.

    Interesting point, although the various strokes test out different muscle groups and different techniques.

    What I actually meant was the javelin guys attempt to impale the ****s riding the horses.
