Athletics is the collective name for a collection of sporting events that involve competitors running, throwing, walking and jumping. The roots of athletic events are prehistoric, with ancient communities competing with each other in various running, jumping and throwing events. Athletic events were prevalent in the ancient Olympics in Greece, starting originally with just a running race and gratefully expanding over time to include various running, jumping and throwing events. To this day, success at the Olympic Games is still seen as the pinnacle of achievement in the sport of Athletics — although there also World Championships and various national and continental championships both indoors and outdoors. The objective in all athletics disciplines is to win the event.
