I am not sure many in Norway will miss the "Dream Mile".
When I was living in Norway (just 200m from Bislett) the Dream Mile was mostly regarded as an event to keep the Americans interested in the meet.
In general, Norway is a tiny country in the world of track. Bislett has always tried to promote the few Norwegian stars. Back in the days, it was Ingrid Kristiansen, Trine Hattestad, Vebjorn Rodal, Steinar Hoen, Hanne Haugland, Andreas Thorkilsen.
Right now the Ingebrigtsen family is keeping Norwegian track hearts alive.
Norwegian TV even followed the family over several programs, just go on youtube and you will find it.
My general view: Bislett is at its best when it is focusing on middle to long distance racing.
I have had many really nice experiences watching fast runnning.
