    What sort of ouftits will the nuns wear? I don't see them running around in scanty lycra attire

    Also, it's funny to see Kosovo referred to as 'another tiny country'. It may be relatively small, but it has a population about 2000 times that of the Vatican. In fact, plenty of countries smaller than that have been winning medals. The Bahamas have about 20% of Kosovo's population and we all know how much success they've had over the years.

    Maybe they can have a dual meet with San Marino!

    Too bad they probably won’t join the IAAF in time to vote this summer. If Willie Banks needed their vote, I could put in a good word with people who know people who know people ... :-)

    The article mentioned the Vatican's goal of participating in an international competition I had not known previously, the Games of the Small States of Europe, the last edition of which was hosted by San Marino!

    Currently nine teams participate:
    Andorra
    Cyprus
    Iceland
    Liechtenstein
    Luxembourg
    Malta
    Monaco
    Montenegro
    San Marino

    If you're asking whether a stadium would fit inside the Vatican - it would, many times over. In practice, finding free place to build one nowadays would be hard. But it's not much of an problem to find a place to train in Rome.
