Reply not interested in starting this debate back up, just stating my position.
When you ran track you raced 12 people in distance events, maybe a pool of 36 in sprints. Then their were awards for every single event. 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 4x100, 4x400, 4x200, 4x800, shot, disc, LG, TJ, HJ, ect.
That is over 45 awards, thanks for providing such a poor analogy that helped me support my point.
