Many students participating in Track and Field activities are also busy with the application process for colleges that require students to submit scores from either the SAT or ACT tests, these tests scores help colleges make admission decisions. Recently ACT recently has become more and more popular, it assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. Online ACT prep featuring new learning methods such as mini-learning is a good practice for students engaged in intensive sport activities.

Track and Field goes all the way back to the original Olympic games, and today is had become a sport that’s performed at the top of the 21st century sports settings. On track & field, our national team, Team USA, has become the the World’s Number One Team, but track and field entails a lot more than merely the Olympic sports teams. USATF is also sanctioning countless track and field meetings and sport events s at every competition level, including youth and masters athletic competitions.
Track and field is including athletic contests on running, jumping, & throwing, and the name comes from where the sport is typically performed: stadiums where a grass field is enclosed by an oval-shaped running track, and the grass field houses the jumping and throwing events. Track & field fall under sports umbrella of athletics, including cross country, road running, and race walking. Foot racing includes hurdling, sprints, race walking, middle- & long-distance running, and the athlete who realizes the fastest time is the winner. At the throwing and jumping events, the athlete who reaches the greatest height or distance is the winner.
Jumping includes high jump, long jump, triple jump, and pole vault, while throwing includes javelin, shot put, hammer, and discus. There are numerous ‘multi or combined events’, for example the decathlon (including ten events), heptathlon (seven events), and pentathlon (five event). In these combined events, athletes are participating in multiple track & field events. The majority of track & field events are performed by individual athletes and have a single victor, while the best known team events include relay races, typically executed by a team of four athletes. Generally, these events are gender-specific, though both the women’s and men’s competitions are generally held simultaneously at the venues.
