it's funny because wrestling is too fake for the olympics, but this gets to replace it . . .

Does the video make anyone else think of the Malcolm in the Middle episode where his dad gets really into speed walking?

I think the most difficult part of speed walking is having the self control to not break out into a run.


It made more sense in my head.

You are the only person I know who has watched Malcolm In The Middle.
Honest.

Great show, my brothers and I always had a great time watching it.

Bryan Cranston is awesome

It's not an Olympic event, but it is not as easy as you may think is. In fact, it's a lot of tiring work.........

I would have been disappointed. Because I bet that would at least have some entertainment value in it.

What is crazy is I tried speed walking once. The style and form you have to use hurt the crap out of my shins. So I have some respect for these strange people....

Not necessarily.
What if you're playing golf and you accidentally hit the ball too hard, and then it flies really far smacks someone in the head and proceeds to knock them out?
