2. I'm a bit confused about the genitive plural "tw=n a)ndrw=n". Is it an objective of the verb nikaw? But in this case I would have expected an accusative case...
And also "why," as here, I think.
The genitive modifies the following noun, "race (course)" which is accusative.

First, it's a direct quote (even if there are no quote marks), so watch the tense.
Also, the ti/s here isn't "who" but "what", agreeing with qo/rubos, "what's the noise?"
