The main objective of World Athletics Day is to establish a firm link between the youth, our sport, and environmental conservation. It is nice that the International Association of Athletics Federations’ (IAAF) worldwide gives clubs and schools an ideal opportunity to promote the sport. A sport is a big part of culture around the world and often plays an important role in our lives. Sports like other experiences in life, provide opportunities for growth. World Athletics Day is the sport’s annual worldwide festival of youth and one of the busiest programmes of competitions on the athletics calendar, offering the opportunity to promote the sport through youth participation in clubs and schools. It is commonly said that sports builds character on all levels of athletic competition. Athletics, which is often used synonymously with any sporting activity, refers primarily to track and field events that concern running, jumping, or throwing. Let us maintain a healthy lifestyle. Sports, in particular athletics, not only promote good health but it also teaches one how to handle competition, be fearless.
