    I don't really like the idea of giving out more medals for doing the exact same thing. And from an athletic point of view, it's only going to work if it's not on the same day as the single-sex 4x4s. Otherwise it will water down the quality of all 4x4s.

    How's that related to one more sprint relay?

    I'll give it a chance, even though the Bahamas version this Spring was a dud. How is this a good thing for the 'diversification' of the Olympics when it will come down to another USA-Jamaica shoot-out?

    I would think that guaranteeing the U.S. another medal, and a very good shot at another gold would be the last thing the IOC or IAAF would want to do.

    Unless the ultimate—but hard to believe—plan would be to kill the two single-sex versions.

    I'll bet short money that NBC prodded (like a horse) the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee to add this event, in spite of the farce that was the Bahamas version. What will it take for the IAAF to grow a new spine, and step in and say HELLZ NO?
