Presentation Transcript
slide2

Track and field events are commonly individual sports with athletes challenging each other to choose a single victor.

  • The racing events are won by the athlete with the best time, while the jumping and throwing events are won by the athlete who has achieved the maximum distance or height in the contest.
  • The running events are categorized as sprints, middle and long-distance events, relays, and hurdling.
slide4

Track and field events are divided into three categories:

1. Track events

2. Field events

3. Combined events

  • The majority of athletes tend to specialise in just one event with the aim of perfecting their performance, although the aim of combined events athletes is to become capable in a number of disciplines.
slide5

Track events involve running on a track over particular distances and—in the case of the hurdling and steeplechase events—obstacles may be placed on the track.

  • There are also relay races in which teams of athletes run and pass on a baton to their team associate at the end of a certain distance.

Field event:

  • A contest that takes place on a field rather than on a running track
slide6

There are two types of field events: jumps, and throws.

  • In jumping competitions, sportsperson are judged on either the length or height of their jumps.
  • The performances of jumping events for distance are calculated from a board or marker, and any athlete overstepping this mark is judged to have fouled.
slide8

In the jumps for height, an athlete must clear his or her body over a crossbar without knocking the bar off the supporting standards.

  • The best part of jumping events is unaided, although athletes push themselves vertically with purpose-built sticks in the pole vault.
