EVENT DETAILS:
Track & Field covers a vast array of events that appeal to both purist Super-Jocks and people like you and I who simply want to compete. Notice the primary logo for this website - above - the javelin thrower. That is one of the Track & Field events. The overall Track & Field event is what comes to mind when the term "Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics" mentioned. Shot Put, Discus, runs/dashes of various distances, the High Jump and the Long Jump are included. For both the Super Jock and the "week-end warrior." Track&Field is the only GNOSO event in which "under-40" comptitors may participate. "You want a piece of me? - BRING IT ON!
