How are mixed track relays not in the Olympics yet?

WRITTEN BY THE EDITOR ON MARCH 05, 2018. POSTED IN SPORTS

It's not often I discover new sports and it's certainly not often I find new sports and am instantly hooked. But this week someone sent me a video on twitter, and I was amazed at what I saw. Mixed track relay. What a race, what a spectacle! See for yourself right here. 

Why isn't this in the Olympics yet? What an amazing spectator sport. Huge amounts of strategy is involved, the leads change often, and finally we have a sport where men and women can essentially compete.

Here's another 4x400m to enjoy.

It works in the shorter format too, as seen below in this exhibition 4x100m relay.

The sooner this gets into the Olympics the better. Perhaps only in the 4x100m initially, but I reckon there will be a huge demand for the 4x400m to join on the race schedule. 

Thanks for the share Steve.
