TOKIO 2020

Ruta de la Marcha Atlética Olímpica

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano 2020, los Juegos de la XXXII Olimpiada, se realizan en Tokio, Japón. Hay tres eventos de marcha atlética en el programa olímpico actual: marchas masculina y femenina de 20km, y marcha mascullina de 50km. Todos los eventos se realizan en la ciudad de Sapporo, 800km al norte de Tokio.

Each race walker is scrutinised by judges positioned along the course, who carry warning paddles with symbols for “loss of contact” and “bent knee”. An athlete is disqualified if they receive a warning from three or more different judges.

Race walking is distinguished from running races in that one foot must always be in contact with the ground. In addition, the knee cannot be bent from the time the front foot comes into contact with the ground until the vertical upright position.
