As for 50km, I'm not surprised that such decision was made completely out of public.

 

That seems to be quite a thing for any sport federation, putting forward major changes out of nowhere.

 

I'm curious to know what they're going to do with Track Cycling.

Maybe they will axe another endurance event and replace it with Flying Lap. :d

Race walking, really weird sport and totally boring in my opinion . But that is a question of taste.

I think it will be a good decision and actually would not mind kicking it out completely.

Yep, Omnium is actually too exciting because it has points race. Needs to be kicked out immediately. :evil:

 

Ah, I wish I followed track cycling back in 2008, the last time we had real good events there...

So Miguel Francis can compete immediately for :GBR because he pulled out of the Olympics at the last moment? How convenient for him.

Insane PB for Croatian shotputter Stipe Zunic. Now he has 3rd best result in 2017.
