Looking like the village people on a mission, these Olympic race walkers show some style as they pass the fountain in front of Buckingham Palace.

Thousands of people turned out on a beautiful Saturday to see the 50k Olympic Race Walking event on central London boulevards including the front of Buckingham Palace.

In the 50k Olympic race walk event the walkers must have one foot on the ground at all times. Eight walkers would be DQed.
