New Athletics Format: Invisible Enemies

The "youth of the world", they gathered to the Sport. Each Time the IOC President calls on at the end of the Olympic games to do so in four years. Now it is just Gathering difficult. And the question is: How to gather, compete against each other, without really coming together?
