Diniz confirms only 50 km
FONT ROMEU (FRA): French walking world record holder Yohan Diniz confirmed he will not compete in both walking events in Rio but will concentrate on the 50 km. This week he had last trainings on the track and next two weeks will be devoted to work on the asphalt. "I had allergy problems (asthma attack related to pollen) and I put myself on the side. It is difficult to recover in these conditions. I thought that finally I was taking a risk by doubling. The 50 km distance is that I learned to master, I really know it well, while in the 20 km Im not so sure," he said for L´Équipe. He knows it will be his last olympic chance at age of 38.
