Experience the Intensity of Professional High Heel Racing
You need strong ankles and a smart fashion sense in this sometimes violent and ruthless sport. This week’s 100 meter event was contested in Moscow's Hermitage garden with talented young athletes competing for a shopping voucher worth 100,000 rubles ($5,119). Similar races have been held in St. Petersburg, Berlin, Amsterdam (see video), Washington, DC , and the drag race variation for male competitors also making appearances. Rules apparently vary in the Moscow race a minimum heel height of nine centimeters (3.5 Inches) was required, in Amsterdam athletes could get away with a mere seven centimeters(2.75 Inches). By the way, hometown girl Maria Kanarova took first place in the Moscow event.
