Track-and-field athletics is an Olympic sport that includes running, walking, jumping and throwing. It combines several disciplines: road running, steeplechase, hurdles, race walking, technical (jump and throwing events), all-around, running (on the highway) and cross-country (running on rough terrain). Track-and-field athletics is one of the main and most popular sports, as it does not require expensive equipment for classes. This is why it is a highly prevalent sport. Competitions are held both in the individual championship and in the team.
