Like everything in life, there is a hierarchy. So, in the Olympics there is as well. What is the premier event? If you watched the women’s and men’s 100m race, then your question was answered.
The lights go down. A hush fills the stadium (easier with no spectators). Light show, moving graphics on the track, and athlete introductions go on for…well, a lot longer than the 9 or 10 seconds it takes to run it.
Did I watch it? You bet. Next is the 200m. Wonder what they do for an encore.
That’s all the weirdness for today.
