How wrong is it that they’ve devoted maybe a total of one hour of TV time to the Decathlon, the epitome of Olympic sport, and showed at least three hours of men’s racewalking? We need to see all 50K of that? No. We need to see the Olympic Decathlon.

Very wrong.

I want to see the Decathlon! It’s the best of the track and field! These are probably the most well-rounded athletes in the Olympiad, and we get five seconds here, five seconds there.

Grr. Argh.

  1. I totally agree. I found out it was OVER before I’d ever seen any of it.

  2. They devoted more time to the decathalon than they did to any of the shooting sports…
