Great Photo documentary of Men's 50k Olympic Trials

Check out this exciting event here. These guys are incredible athletes and are faster than many runners out there. Look at the pictures and the results and then tell me that Racewalking is not a sport!

Sadly, after the trials Al Heppner, one of leaders for most of the race and a driven competitor (number 3), committed suicide, apparently despondent over not qualifying for the Olympic team.
