Since 1896, athletics has been on the programme of each edition of the Games of the Olympiad. Its presence on the Games programme has allowed its popularity to increase across the world. This popularity was also strengthened by the creation of the IAAF in 1912. Women’s events appeared for the first time at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, while the men’s programme was standardised as of the 1932 Games in Los Angeles. Although at the beginning women were authorised to participate in only some events, today their programme is almost identical to that of the men.

  1. After running the 200, 400 (earlier the 100) and then transitioning to hurdles in high school, I realized this was the best balanced raced in TnF. In HS there is only the 300 lows so I cant speak to the 400 hurdles but the hurdles is a true race that will teach you about endurance. More than the quater can, speed more than the 100 or 200 can, and technique and focus more than any other race – you take your eye off that bar or forget to power your back leg through and your 1 to 2 hurdle lead could be gone all in a flash. I loved the hurdles. Follow thru in life
