These events ultimately led to the introduction of five track and field events for women in the athletics at the Summer Olympics. Also inphysical education advocate Zhang Ruizhen called for greater equality and participation of women in Chinese track and field. Marking an increasingly inclusive approach to the sport, major track and field competitions for disabled athletes were first introduced at the Summer Paralympics.

Carl Lewis was among the athletes who helped increase track and field's profile. With the rise of numerous regional championships, as well as the growth in Olympic-style multi-sport events such as the Commonwealth Games and the Pan-American Gamescompetitions between international track and field athletes became widespread.
From the s onwards, the sport gained more exposure and commercial appeal through television coverage and the increasing wealth of nations. After over half a century of amateurism, the amateur status of the sport began to be displaced by growing professionalism in the late s. Many world records were broken in this period, and the added political element between competitors of the United States, East Germanyand the Soviet Union, in reaction to the Cold Waronly served to stoke the sport's popularity.
The increase in the commercial capacity of track and field was also met with developments in the application of sports scienceand there were many changes to coaching methods, athlete's diet regimes, training facilities and sports equipment. This was also accompanied by an increase in the use of performance-enhancing drugs. State-sponsored doping in s and s East Germanythe Soviet Union and early 21st century Russiaas well as prominent individual cases such as those of Olympic gold medallists Ben Johnson and Marion Jonesdamaged the public image and marketability of the sport.
From the s onwards, track and field became increasingly more professional and international, as the IAAF gained over two hundred member nations. Inthe series was replaced by the more lucrative IAAF Diamond Leaguea fourteen-meeting series held in Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East—the first ever worldwide annual series of track and field meetings.
List of athletics events Track and field events are divided into three broad categories: The majority of athletes tend to specialise in just one event or event type with the aim of perfecting their performances, although the aim of combined events athletes is to become proficient in a number of disciplines.
Track events involve running on a track over a specified distances and—in the case of the hurdling and steeplechase events—obstacles may be placed on the track. There are also relay races in which teams of athletes run and pass on a baton to their team member at the end of a certain distance.

There are two types of field events: In jumping competitions, athletes are judged on either the length or height of their jumps. The performances of jumping events for distance are measured from a board or marker, and any athlete overstepping this mark is judged to have fouled.
In the jumps for height, an athlete must clear their body over a crossbar without knocking the bar off the supporting standards. The majority of jumping events are unaided, although athletes propel themselves vertically with purpose-built sticks in the pole vault.

The throwing events involve hurling an implement such as a heavy weight, javelin or discus from a set point, with athletes being judged on the distance that the object is thrown. Sunday, April 16, V 7 N. Ned now resides at the seven mile mark of the Boston Marathon and will be out there tomorrow to watch that event. One might be reminded that this famous track at Stagg Field where many NCAA championships were contested in the s and 30s had a more nefarious history.
Under the main grandstand was the site of the Manhattan Project where the world's first nuclear reaction was carried out in the early s during the development of the first atomic weapon. Today the stands are gone, and a statue is there to commemorate that event. Ted was set up ready to start a one mile event not knowing one of the club members had climbed up into the steel rafters of the building on a catwalk immediately overhead.
When Ted fired the gun to start the race, all the runners stood still, and at the same time the prankster overhead dropped a chicken carcass onto the track at Ted's feet.
The idea was that Ted had brought down the chicken with his starting pistol. The chicken was probably served up at Harold's Chicken restaurant down the street after the meet. We can't identify the individuals in the group of Polish runners, but under the picture are mentioned their probable names based on who represented Poland in distance races in that meet.

This was the first international meet I ever witnessed. We hope that Ned can find some more pictures to send our way, and if he does we will pass them on to you. Behind them the fieldhouse where many an indoor practice and meet was held. Members of the Polish team running on the Midway at U.
This meet was held just three months before the Cuban Missile Crisis. In the stands at the meet in Chicago there was more Polish spoken than English due to Chicago's large Polish community that was very much in evidence.
I don't think anyone defected, but the guy in the back might be a KGB man. Probable names are Edward Szklarcryk 3: We have no idea which one is which. Roger Sayers practices handing off to Paul Drayton coming onto the backstretch.

Forman would finish 3rd in the Steeple. Truex was second in the in Saddler ran on the 4x In reading your comments, a mild caveat. Enrico Fermi was among the nuclear scientists who actually preceded the Manhattan Project although he was heavily involved with it later. He created the world's first nuclear reactor in late with his Chicago Pile I under the Stagg Field stands.
Does that fit with your memories? McArdle was pre-maturely bald and he looked to be years older than his actual age. He retired from the sport and took up running again later in life only to die of a heart attack while out training one day in Van Cortlandt Park.Univ of Chicago Track Meet
Struggling through the last few miles at Boston inI looked around to see a thin figure in a WKTC singlet on my tail. It was Arne and he beat me. Steve Price Here is how we reported this meet five years ago. This is the precursor for the Russian dual meet three weeks off.
There is no doubt the US will win, but there are questions to be answered in several events. The first day is a disaster for the Poles. Long and Gubner throw and for a four foot margin over the best Pole.
