ATHLETICS

Object of the Game

In all athletic disciplines, the goal is to win the event. Depending on the event, this may entail running or walking faster, throwing farther, jumping higher, or jumping farther than your competitors. The goal of decathlon and heptathlon events, which include multiple athletic events, is to collect as many points as possible by performing well in each individual event.

Players & Equipment

A vest, shorts, and running shoes are the most basic pieces of sporting clothing.

Scoring

There are no points to be earned. Everyone is ranked according to how quickly they ran or walked.

Winning

This refers to completing a race in the shortest amount of time feasible in both running and walking sports. In athletics, the winner receives a gold medal, the second-place finisher receives a silver medal, and the third-place finisher receives a bronze medal. Athletes who do not place in the top three do not receive a prize.

The Race

All runners must stay in their lanes during the 100-meter race, which is raced on a straightaway. The event concludes when a runner’s body (not the head, arm, or leg) crosses the finish line, as it does in all races.

Forming Heats

The number of competitors on the track at the start of individual 100m events will not exceed the number of lanes available.

Athletes can advance to the next round by placing first or second in their heat or by time/overall placement.

Additional athletes will not be permitted after the number of athletes for an event has been determined, the lanes have been assigned, and the referee has determined the number of athletes who will qualify for the following round.

False Starts

  • By raising his hand or standing up after the “on your marks” and “set” signals but before the fire of the starting device, an athlete can abort the start. The referee may issue an improper conduct warning to the athlete if the activity was deemed unacceptable.
  • When an athlete begins the beginning motion after assuming a full or final set position before the starting device is fired, this is known as a false start.
  • It may be termed a false start if a competitor disrupts other athletes at the starting line. The first false start results in disqualification from the race, despite the fact that the rules have changed regularly in recent years. If a starter isn’t convinced that all participants are ready to start the race, he will tell them to “stand up.”

Timing

Hand timing, completely automatic timing, video timing, and transponder timing are the four official timing methods. This year’s festival will use hand timing.

Official time begins when the gun or timing device flashes, not when it makes a sound.

Start

Every 100-meter sprinter must begin the race with his feet in the starting blocks. The official race starter will call the sprinters to their blocks and on comEvery sprinter in the 100-meter dash must start with his feet in the starting blocks. The sprinters will be called to their blocks by the official race starter, and they will assume a fixed position on command. The runners must start in the established position with both feet in the blocks and their body weight on their hands. The race begins when the starter’s gun sounds.

Finish

The finish line is the most important part of the race, and it’s especially exciting when sprinters are evenly matched. According to IAAF standards, a runner’s time is recorded when the trunk of the body crosses the finish line. In the festival’s 100-meter sprint races, the winner is determined by a race referee at the finish line.
