Did anyone see the Olympics last night in speed walking? wow it was really something to see. It looked like they were penguins waddling as fast as they could. I couldn't help but like burst out laughing because it was so funny. Did anyone else see this?

Yes I watched it too and had to laugh. Can't people speed walk and not swish back and forth like that? Do they have to do that?

Oh gosh, I know what you mean! I did not see the Olympics speed-walking, but I have seen youtube videos that show speed-walking, I think it is a very unattractive movement if you would ask me haha. It's definitely a sight to see, it is hilarious to see them move like that. I wonder what makes someone decide, "Hey I am going to pursue Olympic speed-walking in my life and I will win the gold medal!" But hey, we all do our own things I guess haha, though some are a little odder than others, but whatever works for you works for me, though I will laugh at some of those things haha. I suppose speed-walking is a little more entertaining than some of the other Olympic events... Anyways, happy mylotting!
