Anyone else find it insanely annoying that IAAF has separate lists for 5000m race walk and 5km race walk? Seriously, what's up with that?

Maybe becouse the 5000m are in the stadium and the 5km is a road event? :mumble:

Yes, I honestly never understood that nor have I ever wanted to try and understand it.

 

Edit: Okay, I think @Gianlu33 got it :d

Probably, but still. At least give the option for a combined list.

YES, we're strategically moving in on the last place in the race walk, because that's where you want to be :)

Look, there are like 9 people watching the U18 European championships girls 5000m race walk. If you want to be seen, you have to either get a medal or finish dead-last and be in view of those 3 people who are like "aaw look she tried so hard" :p

yes, it really because of what @Gianlu33 wrote...

and it's done because track and road results are not properly comparable, with the first being always a lot quicker (and there are a lo of reasons because of that)...
