I can remember seeing race walking in the Olympics when I was younger. Questions would go through my head like why don’t they just run and why are they walking like that? It’s as years go on and you meet Olympians like Rob Heffernan and Brendan Boyce around Cork you begin to appreciate the unique technique race walking has. I sometimes would try it but it was just out of fun and I wasn’t doing it correctly so it’s time to say yes to learning it properly.
