Proposal to re-enact Tokyo final on Via dei Fori Imperiali.
However, in addition to the budget required, there are significant hurdles to overcome in order for the race to take place, chief of which is the availability of athletes whose calendars are busy at that time of year, as La Gazzetta dello Sport points out.
The proposed event would fall in the middle of the Diamond League, an annual series of 14 track and field meetings for top athletes, part of which - the Golden Gala - will be held in Rome on 9 June.
