It is a simple sport. No equipment needed other than a tennis ball.
Throw the ball after any running start before the start line.
Catch the same ball before it touches the ground. You can dive forwards with both feet off the ground to catch it. Camera marks the spot of catch and calculates distance.
Distance travelled furthest until catch gets gold medal.
So giving this new event to develop until the next Olympics in 2020 and bearing in mind current sprint speeds what do you think will be the mens and womens Olympic records set in Japan?
