Track & Field

So, I'm watching Bolt destroy everyone in the 200 on NBCOlympics.com and I see the following about the history of track and field
Olympic track and field comprises 26 running events, 3 walking events, 16 field events, the decathlon and heptathlon.

Walking events? WALKING!!? Who are these people? Do you get mocked by, oh, I don't know...EVERYONE?? Is there a less sought after medal? Do you get priority seating at Denny's? This is ridonk. And I want one. Bad. Watch out London...here comes power walking Brent!

hmmmm...perhaps I can't be an Olympic speedwalker. But on a different note, perhaps you should not be watching Olympic speedwalking....
