Athletics events comprise competitive athletic contests based on around the activities of running, jumping and throwing at track and field in Stadium and marathon & walking in outside road. Objective of running events in track like marathon and walking is s to reach at the finish line in the first. However, field events may seem a little bit complicated due to several attempts in one athlete. In other throw and jump events except high jump and pole vault, three times of attempts were given for single athlete when over eight athletes were participated.
Only eight athletes who earn best scores in the first three times of attempts will be allowed additional three attempts and ranking will be decided by score. If participated athletes are less than eight, all athletes will have six times of attempts.
High jump and pole vault don’t have limited attempts unlike other field events. Jumper can proceed to next heights in three times attempts but will not be able to attempt any more if jumper can’t jump bar over three consecutive attempts.
