Just spotted this -

Odd News: Hundreds of women don their stilettos in world record racing bid *|*Odd News*|*the londonpaper

Is it just me - or is that just ridiculous!! I daren't make a comment on the paper site, as guys will probably think I am a sad ugly spoil-sport....

I think beach volley-ball is fine! At least they wear practical clothes... but this just seems plain dangerous! Kind of makes a mockery of women running... maybe I am just getting on my soap box (it has been known!)

What do you think? :worried:

I think its just a bit of fun.
Kind of like saying that the Gloucester Cheese Run thing down the hill is making a mockery of mens fell running.

Hmmm, but wearing heels is kind of a stereotype of how females should be- men chasing cheese down a [email protected]@dy big hill isn't a stereo type of men...is it? Now men running down a big hill pushing a lawnmower would be.
Well, anyway, I think it's bit of fun too though there's no way I could participate- I can't walk in the things either!

I reckon I could post a pretty decent time over 80 metres in stillettos. I bet I would have won that race :p

You beat me to it Trin, I was going to complain that this article was sexist and that in this PC madness that we live in, we should all be given the chance to compete! What d'ya think richardsimk?
