Should Race Walking be dropped from the Olympics?

Racewalking is an Olympic track and field event that has been on the Olympic Games program in some form since 1904. There are currently two race distances for men (20km and 50km) and one for women (20km). The women's event was only added in 1992.

Some people do not see the walking events as appropriate Olympic events. The 50km walk for men has been droppped from the 2024 program (for gender equality reasons), but do you think the sport should be dropped altogether? See also a similar poll which asks Which Olympic sport should be dropped?
