Athletism is perhaps one of the most well-known and oldest sports in human history. The Olympic Games, which we have known since ancient times and are known around the world regularly every four years, generally consist of athletics sports branches. In fact, athletism consists of running, performance-based and technical sports. The feature that distinguishes it from the others for athletism is that this sport is very effective and beneficial for maintaining the health and shape of the human body. In order to continue to protect our body health and functions on a regular basis, athletism should be performed continuously. This is where athletism/running track come into play. Apart from running, which also has some requirements, athletics branches require a specially constructed track and different equipment. This particular track should have effects both to support athlete performance and to prevent or reduce athlete injuries.
In this regard, tracks in the standards and criteria determined by the World Athletics Association or IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) are suitable for athletics. The IAAF has duties not only to set criteria for tracks, but also to set the rules of sports, to set standards for the equipment used and to organize events.
