Out for a Quick Walk Rio174
Stopping the action of an athletic moment can lead to some pretty silly positions, but with race walking I don't think that there is ever a moment with the contestant doesn't look a little bit silly. Not that I want to cover 50 kilometers in three and a half hours, unless I can do it on by bicycle. Jared Tallent (Australia) took over the lead with a little less than ten kilometers left to race. It was looking like he would be a sure thing. He was hoping to defend his 2012 Gold Medal that he just received due to a recent positive doping test of the Gold Medalist from the London Olympics. Tallent had finish second four years ago, but got moved up with the disqualification.
