Whats everyones thoughts on creating a pure fastest person in the world race over land and through water?
I envisage a race that starts with a 60m land sprint with a track that leads to a 25m pool. You start with the sprint and then launch into the pool without stopping to finish a 25m sprint to the finish. The winner is the fastest human in the world.
It would create amazing interest in my view. Imagine seeing Usain running down the track launching into a sprint swim.....
Lots of things to consider like; design of the track and platform into pool, what footwear would you use? if any? perhaps special grip pads on your feet? New training techniques to train both disciplines and master things such as the running dive.
There are lots of people out there who are good sprint swimmers and sprint runners, I think this could work.
Just a thought.
