Members of Racewalkers Northwest hosted Drew Carney of KGW on Friday, August 12. This was a tie in with the Rio Games and our local Racewalking NW club. Carmen showed Drew the basic techniques of racewalking and he gave it a try!
FRIDAY, 8/12 – Racewalkers Northwest – We’re spending the morning on the track with members of Racewalkers Northwest, a USA Track & Field Member Club founded more than 20 years ago to help grow the Olympic sport of racewalking. I’ll get a lesson in the art of racewalking while we’re there this morning, just in time for today’s Men’s 20km Racewalking Final in Rio.
