    Regarding the long race walk, we will consult with our athletes and Competition Commission to develop an event that is able to feature both men and women. The IOC has suggested this could be any mixed gender event using any current venue, however we are only considering a mixed gender race walk event.
    So I read that to mean that the 50W (m and/or w) will be replaced by a mixed-gender walk relay. So the Oly pgm will have w20, m20 and Mix W Relay.
    Eugene will have 20W and 35W for both genders and Budapest23 TBD?

    But as well as the WCh, the women will race the 20 and 35 at the Area championships and other championships such as the World Team RW Champs & the European Team RW Champs.

    No, the 50km has been abolished altogether. Now, men & women will do both the 20km & 35km.

    Yes, this is it.

    When the 35km was proposed to replace the 50km the two main complaints from the Race Walking community were that:
    a) They would no longer have the longest endurance event on the athletics program - a source of great pride for the walkers
    b) The 20km & 35km are too similar, as I talked about a bit more at https://forum.trackandfieldnews.com/...71#post1731971
