    What's the advantage, then? Whatever the event, there are 1000 athletes in the all-time top 1000 performers. Frequency of competing doesn't affect that in any way.

    Not sure you can say that of ALL European cities. Places like Athens, Barcelona and Rome did have heat issues when OG/ WCs were held there. Even Berlin was very hot during most of the 2018 EC.
