Long jump is an athletics event in which athletes combine speed, strength and agility in attempt to leap as far as possible.Competitors run down the runway and jump as far as they can from the foul line.If you take off from infornt of the take off line then your jump is recorded as a foul jump.The current world record is 8.95 metres. High jump is an athletics event in which competitors must jump over a horizontal bar placed at a measured height. Competitors are allowed a short run up and can approach the bar in which ever away they prefer. The current high jump record is 2.45 metres. Shot putt is an athletics event which involves "putting" a metal ball weighing 7.26 kilograms for men and 4 kilgarms for women.The throw is made from within a large circle with a wooden board at the front. The world record for shot putt is 23.12 metres. Hammer throw is an athletic throwing event where the object is to throw a heavy metal ball weighing 7.3 kilograms attached to a wire and handle.

Long distance track event races require runners to balance their energy.Because these types of races are very energy consuming, one requires mental determination and aerobic conditioning, since stamina is a bigger factor than speed.Standard long distance events are 5000 and 10,000 metres.
Hurdles can be ran over three distances 100 metres (women) 110 metres (men) and 400 metres (men and women).Winners of these events require sprinter’s speed plus precise technique as the competitors glide over their obstacles on their way to the finish line. Competitors are encouraged not to jump over the hurdles but to run, this will increase their speed. There are 10 hurdles in each event. In 100m the hurdles are 0.84 metres in 110 1.067 metres and in 400 0.914metres. Steeple chase is the Duckbilled Platypus of the track and field world, combining several different skills into one event, including distance running, hurdling and long jumping.The 3000-meter event includes 28 hurdle jumps and seven water jumps. The jumps begin after the runners pass the finish line for the first time. There are five jumps in each of the final seven laps, with the water jump as the fourth. The jumps are evenly distributed throughout the track
