Track and Field at the Military World Games
By Dialogo July 13, 2011
On its roster of sports, the 5th Military World Games will include track and field, the most noble and ancient sport in the competition. In all, twenty-one events will be held at the João Havelange Olympic Stadium, known as the “Engenhão.” The marathon’s forty-two kilometers will be run between Recreio dos Bandeirantes and Aterro do Flamengo.
The competition organizers used the recent IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) standards and the CISM Track and Field Regulations to design the program of events. Men and women will compete. Each country was allowed to register two athletes per individual competition, one team per relay competition, and three names for the marathon.
The events in the competition are:
Track: 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 10,000m, 100m women’s hurdles, 110 m men’s hurdles, 400m hurdles, 3000m steeplechase, 4×100m relay, 4×400m relay, and marathon.
Jump: High jump, long jump, triple jump, and pole vault.
Field: Discus throw, hammer throw, javelin throw, and shot put.
