Title: Olympic Games Explained with T. Rex
T. Rex: Today: walking!
T. Rex: It's running for lazy people!
Dromiceiomimus: T. Rex, that's a really unfair-
T. Rex: "I can't be bothered to bend my knee! Make me a sport!"
T. Rex: I'm going to start a lazy version of the triathlon.
T. Rex: A 10km walk, directly following a 40km freewheel downhill.
T. Rex: All kicked off by a gruelling 1.5km float!

My grandmother's cousin or uncle or something like that - a non-direct ancestor of mine, but not ludicrously so - was an Olympic champion at race walking, so I am forced to conclude it's a fully legitimate sport, much more so than canoe slalom or 'bad minton' or what have you.
