The Olympics was the elite competition for track and field, and only amateur sportsmen could compete. Track and field continued to be a largely amateur sport, as this rule was strictly enforced: Jim Thorpe was stripped of his track and field medals from the Olympics after it was revealed that he had taken expense money for playing baseball, violating Olympic amateurism rules, before the Games.
His medals were reinstated 29 years after his death. The National Collegiate Athletic Association held their first Men's Outdoor Track and Field Championship inmaking it one of the most prestigious competitions for students, and this was soon followed by the introduction of track and field at the inaugural World Student Games in Alice Milliat argued for the inclusion of women at the Olympics, but the International Olympic Committee refused.

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.

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. One point Typical six-person scoring is Three-person scoring is most common in dual or tri meets, scored and for relays.
Notice that in each case, the scoring benefits those who place higher disproportionately more than those who place lower. Commonly Contested Events In every track meet, regardless of the level, there are certain events that are commonly contested.
High School At the high school level, there are 14 events that are most commonly contested: In high school, the 1,meter or 1,meter is often considered a distance race.
All four jumping events the high jump, long jump, pole vault, and triple jump and usually two throwing events are contested.

Nuances of Team Scoring The breakdown of events has a huge impact on team scoring. For example, athletes who can sprint and jump, as well as middle-distance runners, are more able to compete successfully in multiple events compared to throwers or distance runners.
Consequently, teams that are strong in the middle distances or sprints and jumps are able to score in more events than teams that are only strong in throws or long distances. This is particularly true as the level of competition rises.
There are two things that weigh heavily on how a team breaks up its event groups: In smaller meets, a greater number of athletes from each team have a greater impact on scoring.
