Olympic AthleticsSummer Olympics - Paris Olympic 2024

Olympic athletics, a cornerstone since 1896, showcases speed, strength, and agility across various track and field events. Paavo Nurmi of Finland, dominating the 1920s, earned a record 12 medals, including nine golds, leaving an enduring legacy. Other icons like Carl Lewis, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt have further enriched the sport's history with their exceptional talent and numerous medals. Nurmi remains the most decorated athlete in Olympic Athletics, with nine gold and three silver medals in distance running events from the 1920s.

Looking forward to Athletics at the Paris 2024 Games in France, the schedule spans from August 1 to 11, featuring 48 medal events across three distinct sets: track and field, road running, and racewalking. Four different venues will host events, including Pont d'Iena for racewalking, Hotel de Ville and Les Invalides for marathon races, and Stade de France for track and field events.

A groundbreaking moment in Olympic history, the Paris 2024 competition will feature an equal number of medal events for men and women, a significant stride toward gender equality. The introduction of the Marathon Race Walking Mixed Relay on a marathon course replaces the men's 50-kilometer race walk, exemplifying a commitment to inclusivity.

Another noteworthy change in the Paris 2024 athletics program is the repechage-round format in individual track events from 200 to 1500m and hurdles events. This format, offering a second chance for runners to advance to the semifinals, replaces the previous system based on the fastest overall times. Paris 2024 promises a blend of tradition and innovation, enhancing the allure of Olympic athletics on the world stage.
