to pick your team click on "team transfers."
Pick your team from the athlete pool, and make the captain one who is likely to score extra points for a meet record, because the captain's score counts double.
Make sure to pick only athletes who will be competing in the upcoming meet, such as not Usain Bolt. And make sure to re-pick your team for the next meet or it will suck. 95% of teams will miss at least one meet, so you can guarantee a top 20 finish just by paying attention.
