I fully endorse Chris's comments re the (mis)treatment of Race Walking in the Commonwealth Games in Scotland. Why did the Organising Committee not advise any participating country's Athletics body of their intentions before lodging their bid? I think that the Commonwealth's Race Walkers should be told why they were considered surplus to requirements .Just as important, how can a recurrence of this beprevented in the future?
Proud & surreal: The only man in British athletics to have competed at five Olympic Games. "Reach for the stars but keep your feet on the ground"...
