Races? It tests both your mind and your body. You get to watch individuals beat their own records and set new ones. In this game, time is of essence and just as important as bracing the tape. The littlest mistakes can cost you the medal. A little looking back in distraction can cost you the gold.
Hands may be flailing and mouths may hang open but we just do not care as long as you keep us (the spectators) on the edge of our seats and bag the medals, we’ll deal. We love love love a good competition.
