WHAT IS RACE WALKING? LOSS OF CONTACT

If contrast if you look at the race walker's back foot in Figure 1 it is as bad as all of Korzenoski. However, his front foot is also just as bad. So he's off the ground twice as much as Korzinoski, give or take a little. So its my opinion that this individual should be disqualified for loss of contact, but not every judge would. Even worse is the race walker in Figure 2.
