Track and Field

Track and field is a sport which includes athletic contests established on the skills of running, jumping, and throwing.  The name is derived from the sport's typical venue: a stadium with an oval running track enclosing a grass field where the throwing and jumping events take place. Track and field is categorised under the umbrella sport of athletics, which also includes road running, cross country running, and race walking.
