    As long as there are meet sponsors & cold northern hemisphere winters, indoor track ain't dead. Did you forget the world outside USA? People in London, Brussels, or Stockholm would laugh at your statement.

    The Millrose Games, a U.S. meet, had the largest single-day attendance of any indoor meet this year (including the world indoor championships). The Tyson meet is growing, & Boston's meet sells well. In the U.S., the indoor meets' attendance are on par with outdoor meet attendance (excluding the relay carnivals).

    Could there be improvements? Certainly! More money will entice some of the biggies who currently don't run indoors. But dead? No.
