CYPRUS2009 Results

Athletics is, in many ways, the embodiment of the Olympic motto, "Citius, Altius, Fortius", meaning faster, higher, stronger.

Athletics (or track and field) is about running faster, jumping higher and throwing further than your competitors. The ancient Games at Olympia began simply with foot races, only occasionally complicated by dressing the runners in infantry armour or making them carry soldiers' shields. Today, athletics remains one of the most popular Olympic sports. From the 100m dash to the 42,195km marathon, from the hammer throw to the high jump, it contains many of the Olympic Games' blue-ribbon events and many of the highest-profile competitors.

Athletics can be divided into four areas: track, field, road and combined events. The XIII Games of the Small States of Europe CYPRUS2009 will include all track and field events--but not road events (Marathon and Walks) nor combined events (decathlon and heptathlon).

Track events include sprints (100m, 200m, 400m), middle-distance running (800m, 1500m) and long-distance running (5000m, 10,000m), hurdling (100m and 400m for women, 110m and 400m for men), relays (4x100m and 4x400m) and the 3000m steeplechase.

Field events for both men and women, include the long jump, triple jump, high jump, pole vault, shot put, discus, javelin and hammer throw.
