    That's because many of the top marathon runners skip or don't prioritize the Worlds or Olympics, as other marathons pay much more.

    Maybe security? Somebody to watch his back. Having two guys in that position makes it harder for a nutjob to scamper onto the course and tackle Kipchoge, like what happened to de Lima years ago.

    They'd also benefit from being separated from each other. Collisions are reduced when hurdlers of similar ability aren't next to each other.

    They should stop putting the top 4 seeded hurdlers together in the middle 4 lanes. Put them in 1, 3, 6, and 8 (or 2, 4, 7, 9 on a 9-lane track) so they're less likely to collide.

    The Olympics is what it is, its timing is not under IAAF control. But if it ever happens to be in September or October again, as it was in 1988 and 2000, that's a good thing for track & field.

    I think the September/October time frame is a good idea. The Worlds or Olympics should be the last meet of the season. Anything after is anti-climatic.
