They even dragged Korzeniowski's name into this shitshow. 10k race walk for men? Hell, that's pure BS. This equality thing is total BS. But I get it, nobody cares about race walking anyway so one should feel happy it's still there in the OG programme.

But not nearly as bad as destroying the 50k. This is bad for women's race walking too, after a very long fight they finally got the 50k as well...and while women are starting to change towards that, they destroy the whole thing :facepalm:

Yaroslava Mahuchikh refused from taking part in major senior events and she will stick to her age group.

 

Women's high jump at the National Indoors Championships.

 

1. Yulia Levchenko - 1.97

2. Iryna Herashchenko - 1.97 (she found her mojo back :d )

3. Kateryna Tabashnyk - 1.97 (she almost cleared 2.01 twice)

Yuliya Chumachenko almost had 1.95 (the bar fell in the last moment).

 

Oleksandr Sokolov from my city :cool: won men's 60m (6.68).

 

 

ps. As for 50km drama - Start the riots! IAAF became 1 huge circus :lol:

Rumor has it that Tokyo 2020 and the IOC/IAAF are considering moving more athletics events to the Morning Session. People seem to think they’re caving in to NBC’s demands again.

Yeah, well, that figures. One TV station dictates the world what to do. They'll probably do so with the swimming too?

And people wonder why the US is so dominant in swimming and athletics ...

First they got rid of russia in athletics and now they force the whole world to adapt to their biorhythm.

 

I think its a great idea to modify the race walking program, 50 km race walking has always been one of the most boring/unnecessary events of the games. The best solution in my opinion would be to only have womens 20 km race walking and mens 20 km race walking.

IAAF doesn't want exciting stuff :d 

 

I mean, who cares that the 50km is almost all the time one of the most exciting events not just in athletics, but in the entire Olympic program, in terms of lead changes, fights for positions, drama during the race, spontaneous diarrhea, and so on. Boring events are much better!
