Racewalkers' long march for equality deserves recognition at Tokyo 2020
"The 50km walk may be unglamorous and a little absurd but seven female athletes’ legal fight with the IOC is worth backing"

Interesting article the the UK newspaper - The Guardian  (25th February 2020) re the IOC decision to disallow women from competing in the 50km race at the Tokyo Olympics.
The article looks at the IOC decision and, importantly for us, agues in favour for our " small but passionate community" dedicated to long distance race walking.
