I wouldn't care how many photos you publish if they were even just slightly organized. Say, for instance you are shooting the 800. Publish all the good ones if you want, but maybe keep them in the exact order in which they were taken. You could click through the race, and see the leaders go by, and then the pack, and then the final lap, in which the same runners would look much different. The photos would tell the story of the race, and you wouldn't have to organize anything, other than edit out the bad shots. Segregate the photos into the individual events, and I would be happy to see everything. You wouldn't even have to ID the athletes, the viewer could just match up the photos with the results. The field events are tougher, of course; like I said earlier, we really need photographers at each pit or ring.
Now, some of the packages I've seen are almost in this format, but you are forced to click through everything to see it. Other times, the photos are deliberately scrambled in an attempt to provide visual relief to the viewer.
