Track and field athletics, commonly known as athletics or track and field, is a collection of sports events that involve running, throwing and jumping. The name "athletics" is derived from the Greek word "athlos" meaning "contest".
Born in prehistory, athletics has evolved to include a hugely varied assortment of athletic challenges for men and women of all ages. The complete list now includes track and field events, road running races, cross country races, mountain running and race walking events. But all thrive on the challenge of one's rivals and the joy of self improvement.
