What is your favorite sport? Do you have more than one? How many sports do you do?
One of my favorite sports is track and field. Track is played in the spring and is very intense. No matter what event you are doing, you have to be focused, prepared, and properly healthy.
There are eighteen different events in the sport of track and field. There are running, jumping, and throwing events. The running events are one hundred meter dash, two hundred meter dash, one hunded meter hurdles, fourXone meter relay, fourXfour meter relay, fourXeight meter relay, the mile, the two mile, the eight hundred meter run, four hundred meter run and three hundred meter hurdles.
The jumping events are the long jump, triple jump, high jump,and pole vault. The throwing events are javelin, discus, and shot put. The rest of them are running events on the track.
Most athletic tracks are six lanes wide. Our track is seven lanes wide and most college tracks are eight lanes. Most tracks are made of rubber. Some tracks are made of crement or pavement. Most track runners wear track and field spikes for their events. There are jumping, distance, sprinting, and throwing spikes. They are unbelieveably light and thin. You will literally feel like your running barefoot.
In conclusion, track and field is a great and intense sport.
