...or if you're a racewalker, it's called racewalking. This thread has really opened my eyes to the hard work that race walkers put in, but I just can't believe it's harder than being a 400m hurdler or triple jumper.
Its not harder, just different. Some people will naturally be more inclined to perform that set of techniques better, as it meets their neuro-mechanical skill set.
