The Inspiration Games was a global event, and Stuart Weir put together 4 pieces on the Games…
The Inspiration Games were a lot of fun. A combination of individual and team events, men and women, field events and track races, standard distances and unusual ones and even a relay made for a varied programme of events. There was prize money too, $20,000 per event.
Don’t tell anyone but there was even a triple jump completion.

There was one “real” race, the men’s 100 yards which is the only race to be held in one arena. Andre De Grasse, Jimmy Vicaut, and Omar McLeod normally training partners, competed together.
Athletes in competition with each other were in seven locations in six countries.
