the longest event in the olympics is the marathon
The longest running games ever is attributed to one Robert Davies' Games, (actually spelled OLIMPICK Games) - the Games ran annually in Chipping Campden from 1612 to 1852 plus a resurrected games in 1951. This makes it the longest running games with 241 events. The Games always included the Main Event which was Shin Kicking! (OUCH!)
No such event
The fifiy yard dash has never been an event in the Olympic Games. The shortest running event in the Games is the 100 meter dash and the Olympic record, as of the 2008 Games, is 9.84 set by Donovan Bailey of Canada set in 1996.
wrestling, running, and discus throw
At the 2008 Games in Beijing, that was 245.4 km in men's individual road race cycling.
What is the longest soul music event
The only event at the very first (classical) Olympic games was the Stadion foot race. A Stadion was about 200m, and women were not allowed to compete, so it would be fair to say that the Men's 200m is the oldest ongoing Olympic event, and therefore Athletics the oldest ongoing Olympic Sport.
What major sporting event takes place in every leap year
The Olympic Games.
The preparation for the Olympic Games depends on the event. However, years of intense preparation are usually necessary for any Olympic event.
Swimming, Fencing (Epe), Running and Shooting (Combined event), Riding
Running is commonly refered to as "Track" in the Olympics.
it is a running event :)
The longest runing sporting event in the USA is the Kentucky Derby
The Olympic Games.
Running. For the first few Olympics the only event was a sprint of approximately 200 metres.
The ancient Olympic Games were initially a one-day event until 684 BC, when they were extended to three days. In the 5th century B.C., the Games were extended again to cover five days. The ancient Games included running, long jump, shot put, javelin, boxing, pankration and equestrian event oh yeah and discus throw.
Depends on what the question refers to: The longest "running" event is the Marathon, but the longest event in terms of distance in the athletics is the Mens 50 kilometre walk (but you certainly aren't allowed to run in that). Alternatively there are a whole series of events that have been included in every Olympics, therefore there is no single longest running event in terms of being at every Olympics.
The long jump is an event that is generally performed at track and field events. It involves a person running about 20 meters and then jumping into a pit of sand. This event originated in the Ancient Greek Olympic games. It was incorporated into the modern Olympic games in 1896 for men and 1948 for women.
100 meter dash for men and the 100 meter dash and 100 meter hurdles for women.
The Marathon because it is long or the steeplechase because there are a few jumps (It has tripped people, believe me).
