PISTIS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

Athletics

is a collection of sporting events that involve competitive running, jumping, throwing, and walking.[1] The most common types of athletics competitions are track and field, road running, cross country running, and race walking.

The results of racing events are decided by finishing position (or time, where measured), while the jumps and throws are won by the athlete that achieves the highest or furthest measurement from a series of attempts.

The simplicity of the competitions, and the lack of a need for expensive equipment, makes athletics one of the most commonly competed sports in the world. Athletics is mostly an individual sport, with the exception of relay races and competitions which combine athletes' performances for a team score, such as cross country.

Pistis Christian School offers an extensive field for the students who love the sport, many actually participate in this game during games time, usually during Friday afternoons, sometimes the students go for the cross country running for more exercises.
