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.
