Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anne Patricia Manning (born November 13, 1959 in Brisbane, Queensland) is a retired female racewalker from Australia. She set her personal best in the women's 10 km race walk event (44:27) in 1996. Racewalking, or race walking, is a long-distance athletic event. Although it is a foot race, it is different from running in that one foot must appear to be in contact with the ground at all times. Stride length is reduced, so to achieve competitive speeds, racewalkers must attain cadence rates comparable to those achieved by Olympic 400-metre runners-and they must do so for hours at a time since the Olympic events are the 20 kilometre race walk and 50-kilometre (31 mi) race walk.show more
