艾米: What event are you in?
艾米: May I ask you a few questions?
奈丽: Yes, please.
艾米: Could you tell me what`s the difference between track and field?
奈丽: Athletic events are divided into two broad categories---track and field. Each has its particular events.
艾米: Can you make it more specific?
奈丽: OK. Events on the track can be divided into several sections. On the flat, there are sprints, middle distance races and long distance races. There are also the 4×100 relay and the 4×400 relay. In addition, races are run over hurdles and barriers from 110meters. Extreme distance races include the marathon over 42 kilometers and the men`s 50 kilometers road walk.
艾米: What about the events in the field?
奈丽: Events in the field can be divided into two sections: jumping and throwing. Jumping events include the high jump, long jump and pole vault. Throwing events comprise the javelin, discus, hammer and shotput.
艾米: I see.
