More about athletics
The summer Olympics played out in front of thousands of people and millions more through TV screens around the world plays no small part in the popularity of athletics.
The game has steadily risen to a 300-event sporting tradition with over 10,000 competitors from 205 nations competing for gold, silver and bronze medals. Athletics injuries can arise from different types of sporting injuries, including track, cross-country or fell running, and can affect the muscles, tendons, bones, nerves and blood flow. For example shot put or javelin throwers are more likely to damage their arms in some way than long jumpers who will be putting more strain on their leg muscles.
Generally speaking athletics is a relatively safe sport provided the correct procedures are followed.
