There are several types of races in the Olympic games: the long and short distance sprint, long-distance and middle-distance, as well as the hurdle races.The short sprint races are held over 100 m and 200 m. The athlete sometimes reaches speeds of 45 km/h.The 400 m is a long-distance sprint.The 800 m and the 1500 m are middle-distance races, whereas the 5000 m, 10,000 m and the marathon are long-distance events.For the women, the hurdle race is run over 100 m, 110 m for the men, with the hurdles placed very close together. For the 400 m, the hurdles are placed much further apart. Finally, for the 3000 m steeple chase, the competitors have to jump several hurdles and a water obstacle on every lap. The water jump was introduced in the early 20th Century by British noblemen keen to give athletes an event normally reserved for riders and their horses.
