    I don't even like medley relays, so this is a bad idea. I'd be for it it it replaces the men's 10000 Meters though.

    What next? 4x400 hurdles?! (Denmark would probably try to get this in...especially if Amalie Iuel had chosen to run for the country of her birth and her mother).

    of course they will, ... and they will focus on it even more if the athletes run in bronze armor with leather boots holding torch instead of a baton.

    :-) :-P :-) :-P

    Would they mandate that a specific brand of beer be used by everyone? Which beer would they use? Which beer would you use? I'd probably go with Carlsberg, which is advertised everywhere. But if they did this in Tokyo, I'd recommend Sapporo or Asahi. >:-P

    What a stupid idea.

    So now the likes of Allyson Felix can come home with 3 relay medals !!

    If you want to have a mixed sex relay it should be an Ekiden to give distance runners a chance at another medal.
    i deserve extra credit

    With the gentlemen that I work with, the less the better for the females.

    you're missing the point that the IOC (and TV) are moving away from endurance stuff and trying to find short, punchy entertainment for the next-gens. Get used to it.

    And I thought a sport / event had to be in wide practice to be considered for the Olympics.
