Cutline: Right here, this could be a short or long message.

Track

Once hearing the start command, “on your mark,” the athlete must hold steady, and start when the gun fires. The Warrior Games track competition consists of both indoor and outdoor events, along with indoor and outdoor relay distances.

Men and women compete in separate categories in the four outdoor track events, including the 100 meter, 200 meter, 400 meter and 1500 meter as well as the four indoor track events, including the 60 meter, 200 meter, 300 meter and 1500 meter race as well as in. Every branch is allowed to enter three competitors into each event.

The outdoor relay distance, 4 x 100 meter, is a combined event made up of four either male and/or female athletes. The indoor relay distance is 4 x 134 meter. Each service branch is allowed to enter one team into the relay event.

Field

Athletes will compete in separate competitions for shot put and discus, the two Warrior Games’ field events. The shot put event involves “throwing”/“putting” a heavy spherical implement in an attempt to mark a distance further than the competition. Discus is an event in which athletes throw a heavy disc, also attempting to reach as far as possible. Athletes hold very different positions during the action of throwing for both events.

Depending on injury or illness, throwers may compete while sitting. Seated throwers are given one minute between each throw once the implement is handed to the competitor. Standing throwers are given one minute to begin a throw from the time the competitor’s name is called.
