Fun Facts from Wikipedia

​​     Track is an individual as well as a team sport. Your success can also depend on your team mate, and his success, which is also dependant on the event. This promotes teamwork, bonding, and long lasting friendships. As a track competitor you tend to have healthier eating habits because your looking for the right fuel your body needs to perform at its best. As a runner you become very dedicated and disciplined to your self and to your sport. Runners are typically happier and less stressed. A positive attitude and good sportsmanship will carry you through both the wins and the losses of this sport.

     The sport of track and field has its roots in human prehistory. Track and field-style events are among the oldest of all sporting competitions, as running, jumping and throwing are natural and universal forms of human physical expression. The first recorded examples of organized track and field events at a sports festival are the Ancient Olympic Games. At the first Games in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece, only one event was contested: the stadion footrace. The scope of the Games expanded in later years to include further running competitions, but the introduction of the Ancient Olympic pentathlon marked a step towards track and field as it is recognized today—it comprised a five-event competition of the long jump, javelin throw, discus throw, stadion footrace, and wrestling.

Track and field events were also present at the Panhellenic Games in Greece around this period, and they spread to Rome in Italy around 200 BC. After the period of Classical antiquity (in which the sport was largely Greco-Roman influenced) new track and field events began developing in parts of Northern Europe in the Middle Ages. The stone put and weight throw competitions popular among Celtic societies in Ireland and Scotland were precursors to the modern shot put and hammer throw events. One of the last track and field events to develop was the pole vault, which stemmed from competitions such as the Fierljeppen contests in the Northern European Lowlands in the 18th century.
