The words come from the IAAF president, Sebastian Coe, when commenting the decision to integrate the event at the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games.

Would this implementation in the Summer Olympics be a good way of reinforcing the sport which carries most of the Olympic spirit?
Or is athletics down to track and marathons in the days that we live and that’s sufficient for the Olympic events?

What’s your opinion on the subject?
