and_one - Just saw your post on here. Well, one thing about the Relays is they now have a world class facility at Rock Chalk Park. I love the downtown shot put but it just coincides with the Relays and is actually sponsored by the Convention and Visitors Bureau and Downtown Lawrence.
A few years ago they had invited a number of Olympic athletes but have since decided it was too expensive.
Last year Mitchell Cooper set a school record in the discus (my favorite event).
