    I had a GOOD idea to decide who the true olympic champion is - why not build a massive cage and put all the athletes in it and only allow one person to leave.

    Better yet, why not leave them in there to breed and then in a few decades we would have a super race.

    Multiplying or slaying someone to death does not seem very olympiclike to me. I don't think those will be good criterias.

    But you are thinking outside the box. That is good!

    I think the outcome of the competition would greatly depend on where you put the cage. For example, if the cage was placed in the middle of the ocean a swimmer might do better, but if it was on a tree hanging off a cliff gymnastic skills might be useful. I think there are many other variables that ought to be discussed. It is an important issue and I would gladly welcome the suggestions of anyone with better insights or experience in caging people.

    Perhaps some sort of prison guard might offer some insight.
    I guess equipment would be another factor - for example an olympic sprinter woulndt have much of a chance against an olympic shooter.
    It would be interesting to see who came out on top if the field competitors had a duel of hammer, discuss, javelin and shot putt with 10 paces each before throwing.
