Saturday Morning Comics

Probably the funniest or most humorous sport at the Olympic Games is the Walking Race. I remember watching this when I was a boy. My (twin) brother and I even went out and raced and got other neighborhood boys to join in. It was an experience and it took more discipline than you could imagine; as you cannot run! Your heels have to touch first, which helps, but knowing you physically can go faster (by running) but can't, is frustrating and kinda makes you laugh. The humor also is seeing the athlete wobble like penguins and trying to do it faster than anybody. If you are not aware of this event or have never seen it, it is worth watching.
