Olympic Team Chosen

In case you hadn't noticed, the Olympic Trials for the men's 50k walk was today in Miami. The race was won by Philip Dunn; in the extreme heat he did not get an Olympic qualifying time. Those who pay attention to these kinds of races believe he'll likely get one in his only remaining opportunity, the World Cup in Moscow in May.

I actually went to watch a 50k walk once, at the 2001 World Championships. Wow, is that a long race.
