Not a fan of this decision, although I do get that longer distances aren't geared towards public interest, but then when has running long distance ever been about the publicity...?
I'll invite all the pros to run the 5000 and 10,000 at my high school track
Where in that 22 minute video do they say that?
Still there wrote:
Don't worry, the 5/10 will still be run at the Olympics/WC's.
They used to have cross country running in the Olympics but got rid of it.
So, maybe the 5/10 won't be run at the Olympics for long.
