Ever wonder why there was no dedicated history of Olympic racewalking. So did I so in 2003, I put something together for my own edification. It's about 6Mb but you are free to download it. It goes up until the 2000 Olympics and is due for an update some day when I get the time. Right click and choose to save to your hard drive and view it offline.

I maintain a history of Australian ultra distance walking in my capacity as secretary of the Australian Centurions. While not in a publishable format, it is always being updated and is stored here for anyone who wants a riviting read!
