Best Answer

There are actually 3 track & field events in which they are either different, or unavailable for women to participate. These are: 1) Mens 110 m hurdles, whereas women participate in 100 m hurdles. 2) Mens 50 Km walk, no such event exists for women. 3) Mens Decathlon, whereas women participate in a Heptathlon. I went to the International Olympic Committee's website and searched for field events to find this answer. Hope this helps.

There is no age limit for Track and Field. But, there is an age limit for other sports in the Olympics. For example, you must be 16 to compete in gymnastics, and you must be 18 to compete in equestrian. But there is no age limit for track and field.
