One of the Czech attractions at the Rio Olympics will be dozens of pairs of electric-powered life-sized legs in memory of the country’s famous long-distance runner Emil Zatopek. The Zatopek legs were created by artist David Černý who drew the crowd at the 2012 Olympics in London with a red double-decker bus that performed push-ups. The flesh-colored legs are all wearing running shorts and black boots in a reference to Zatopek's training regime. They are fixed to walls or suspended from ceilings from the waist, moving at the rate of about one step per second.
