Our week that was is now up. In it we have a section where we write:
Thumbs up to the meet organizers of the 3rd Flame Games in Amsterdam. According to Race Results Weekly, the "organizers used a "knockout" format in which the last place athlete at 500m, 700m, 900m and 1100m was forced to drop out."
We'd love to see a video of the race so if you can find one, email us. We've always thought there are plenty of ways to make distance races more interesting. At the start of a men's 5000, we'd love to see meet organizers draw a number out of a hat and that means that lap has to be run under 60.00 or you are DQ'd. Do you have any crazy ideas on how to make distance races more interesting?
So post your ideas below.
