A sport in which both mental and physical health. It drains you. Events consisting of short distance - long distance. And long jump, high jump, javelin, shotput, and discus. Javelin is basically asking for death because you are throwing a long sharp stick into the ground possibly causing impaltion. You can break your legs running because they will become so jiggle they will fall off.

This place is also known as torture. Maybe the hell of hell. However, the coaches there are HMM very "motivational", "encouraging", "inspirational", and all in all "amazing". Birthday celebrations before training are one of the best ever. From the sharing of the old but good Strawberry Shortcake from the box itself to smashing the cakes into each other's faces, literal fun. Despite the torturous runs, workouts and CORE, suffering together made the team stronger and will continue to... To never forgetting the iconic "Mind over matter" (also known for drain-vomitting)
