You can't make something more like the Olympics that is fundamentally flawed
in how it works.


The Olympics tests people on EXACTLY the same event regionally with people
competing head to head.  Those people then meet in one place and re-compete
in EXACTLY the same event.


WRTC has 50% of people that compete in very different circumstances and
conditions doing mostly the same thing but not necessarily (HP, LP, Mult)
and then they meet and almost 100% do something different in the final


50% of the participants are just friends of the first 50%.


Adding video and sound and having visitors doesn't change the above.  Sorry.
