Athletics

Running, jumping and throwing – abilities innate in every child – are the activities on which all athletics events are based. Athletics is one of the oldest sporting disciplines, but it has never lost its attraction and remains one of the pillars of the Olympic Games. It is open to all comers and can be practised with only a minimum of equipment. It promotes the development of physical skills of all kinds. It is a discipline for individual competitors, although relay races offer scope for teamwork.
