Rio 2016 Summer Olympics Athletics Schedule for men and women

Athletics has always been part of the Olympics Games since time immemorial. Athletics was part of the sport at the ancient Olympics held in Greece and is part of the Modern Olympics. However, it had to undergo changes to meet modern Olympics needs, but despite these changes it has always been a core sport for any edition for both Paralympics and Olympics sports as well as at any of the Summer and Winter Games. Many world famous athletes like Jamaica's Usain Bolt are featuring.

Therefore the Rio 2016 will not be different at all, in fact, at these Summer Olympics Games 47 events are featuring for both men and women.

The 2016 Rio Games Athletics sports and events will kick off on the 12th of August and run all the way to the 21st of August. This edition of the 31st Summer Olympics has the athletics sport's events classified as either as field and track events or the road events, with road event featuring the Marathon and Race Walking for both men and women.

Athletics will attract the highest number of participants as compared to the other 27 sports and currently all participating nations are running qualifiers in order to meet International Olympics Committee minimum requirements for any of the 47 Olympics athletics events .

Due to the huge number of participants, athletics will therefore require more space and has been allocated three venues. All the 2016 Rio Olympics Athletics 47 events will take for a period of 10 days, with Men’s Marathon medal ceremony closing the entire Rio 2016 Summer Olympics as it will take place shortly before the Rio games closing ceremony.

The three venues that will be hosting Rio 2016 Summer Olympics Athletics Sports and Events are:

1. Flamengo Park will be the venue for the road event; 2016 Summer Olympics race walk start and finish, members of public will be able to watch this sport as competitors walk in the streets of Rio de Janeiro without any payment.

2. Rio’s Estádio Olímpico João Havelange which will be the venue for the 2016 Summer Olympics athletics field and track events. This Stadium is also referred to as the Rio 2016 Olympics Stadium
