Bohdan Bondarenko has had his first competitions this year already.

He jumped 2.10 at the regional competitions, wearing ordinary sneakers & sportswear, using a short run :d + There was a 10-15cm margin.

These Swiss guards could become useful, maybe in shooting or some obscure sport nobody pays attention to outside of the Olympics? ;) Athletics? Not so much. Maybe in Mediterranen Games? :p

So, does thier flagbearer (If they form an offical NOC) come out wearing a priest’s vestments? Black shirt/white collar? Or does the pope lead the team out? The Pope could try to make the boules team for 2024 :p

 Two new events have been added to IAAF World Relay programme. A mixed 2x2x400m relay and mixed shuttle hurdles relay.

The mixed 2x2x400m, a form of an endurance relay event, requires both members of the team to run two 400m legs of a relay.  Each team can choose to start with a man or the woman. The athletes then take it in turns to run their two legs of the relay.

Inspired by a mixed relay event introduced to biathlon in recent years, the 2x2x400m replaces the 4x800m relay, which proved to have limited appeal at previous editions of the World Relays.

The men will run 110m hurdles in one direction and will then hand over to the first woman on the team, who will run back up the straight to hand over to the second man, and so on. To account for the extra distance, women will run out an extra 10 metres at the end of their leg.
