Tug of War or Race Walking ?
I also spent many hours over the weekend enjoying watching ‘real’ athletics being streamed from Sheffield Indoors on the BBC site…….and it included the ladies Walking race….they were wiggling round in circles, and it was neigh impossible to see if the leader was ‘lifting’. Right near the end an Official said she was gave her a red card. Disaster.
If ever there was a minority sport that could be dropped from the Olympics and other major champs its surely got to be the Walk. ?……..And why not replace it with (and reintroduce) the Tug-of-War ? I’m surprised Nitro didn’t consider it. A team event that any country in the world , rich or poor , can enter . You only need a rope and 8 fat people…..USA and Britain could do rather well.
