Making the Olympics Interesting- My Idea

I am sad to report that the IOC again this year disregarded my plan to make the Olympics a real spectacular spectator event.

What’s my plan?

Its simple really. Each athlete, upon entering the stadium for the big opening night ceremony, draws a slip of paper from a barrel. On each slip of paper is one event. Whatever event the athlete pulls from the barrel, that’s what they compete in during the Olympics. And no switching of slips!

Imagine weightlifters doing equestrian events, shot putters high jumping and trap shooters running hurdles! Wouldn’t that simple change make the Olympics much more fun?

Your ideas for fun match-ups go in the comments!
