Well, now I consider the drawback: the OG marathon(s) could easily go the way of World Cross.  With a chance at a medal for someone like Meb (as Amby points out), Hall, Rothlin, Baldini, any Japanese runner, etc. rendered effectively nil, despite the history of the event will the prominent federations (and economies) continue to bother to send full contingents in the marathon for the OG and will their support, broadcasting, etc. of the OG marathon(s) whither as a result?
