I love the ten athletic field events. Track events are exciting, but their sport is competition with others. Field athletes compete to improve their best result and to try to break a world record, and win the gold.Track runners run. Field athletes have to master several skills.
I thrill over the high jump and pole vault. Although it only takes a few seconds to complete the event, I obsess over seeing an athlete fly through the air, arch their back, then flip their legs and pass over the bar. It’s like gravity weakens slightly for their ascent. They chose their event based on strength and skill. They practice, train, and enter events all to reach the pinnacle at the World Championships. It is inspirational to watch the results of sacrifice and determination.
