For the end of 2016, Jon and I take a look forward. What is the state of track and field in the world and where do we go from here.

We get things started by asking what each of our utopian track and field worlds would look like, before delving into the problems with our sport. We tackle the subjects such as:

  • Track and Field’s Irrelevance and what to do about it.
  • Competition vs. Entertainment- What is sport?
  • The Sub 2 hour marathon.
  • Why matchups matters and we need Kipchoge vs. Bekele.
  • Branding and Marketing

We hope you enjoy our 2016 send off with a look forward on how to get Track and Field in a better spot.
