Athletics is in many ways the embodiment of the Olympic motto Citius Altius Fortius - faster higher stronger. Stripped to its bare essentials 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 running races. Today athletics remains one of the most popular Olympic sports.
