Oldies but goodies?
If pentathlon was before the cutoff then that'd be pretty fun

As a trial event though, pentathlon is pretty great.

As long as the event volunteers remind everyone competing at regular intervals, "Imagine if this counted towards your score!"

Imagine Pentathlon at Nationals and one of the 4 team members was goofing off before the event. Tripped, fell, broke an arm.... Now try to track down a replacement on the extensive UIUC campus. Really, one of the best events ever. Warms my heart just thinking about it. Not.
