It is the view of some that Masters are the majority of Race Walkers - a majority that are sometinmes overlooked for therir contribution to the sport.
Have a look at the photos to the right - These are 10 Wellington Masters who attended the Oceania Masters Championshios in Dunedin plus other Masters activity.
Also have a look at this report on what the Wellingotn Masters have been up to - Click Here
This report indicates that Masters Race Walkers (at least in Wellington) are very active and an important part of Race Walking. In fact there is only one "non-Masters" Race Walker in Wellington; so where would the sport be without these Masters!
Let's be -
"Proud to be a Race Walker"
Yes, let us remind others that we may have a few years on the clock but we can still get around on the Track or the Road by supporting every Masters Event -
AND don't forget to support your local Masters Events. An interesting matter that has been raised recently is the possibility of "billeting" a visiting Race Walker. This could help more Race Walkers attend more events.
