Athletics

Within athletics, there is an enormously wide spectrum of sportsmen and women and different specialisations. Even with similar or related disciplines, a sportsman or woman of one particular discipline would normally have no chance against a sportsman or woman of another discipline. For example, in long jump the key thing is to have powerful legs and an explosive start – as with sprinting. Nevertheless, sprinters need a quite different, more finely honed and automated sequence of movements from their colleagues in long jump. Things often get particularly interesting when several sports are brought together in particular formats – such as in the decathlon. These sportsmen and women have to master all of these sports to as high a level as possible. It doesn’t matter whether you are keen on a particular sport or are generally fascinated by athletics, you will find some exciting big names from the world of sport among our keynote speakers who cover a wide range of specialist disciplines.
