    It really behooves adults who can afford it to pay for titers and check their immunity to both. Even if you...

    If the decathlon was staged in a smaller stadium at Worlds, what kind of turnout would you get? I think it depends on where you hold the meet.

    Here's what I would do in a perfect world (so yes I accept that this will never happen)

    It has to be phased in appropriately. It would be unfair to make the change abruptly. You need a minimum of 8 years/2 Olympics to properly phase from the hep to the dec. Start with the U20 athletes....

    We know how they would feel. The Octathlon was proposed by European Athletics and all the men I saw spoke out against it.

    Mondo has an FAT 10.57. Bubka has a hand timed 10.3 from practice. I'll take peak Mondo over peak Bubka in the 100 meter dash any time.
