in the year eleventy-seven thousand B.C., a prehistoric man chased a fair cave lass up a few glaciers and around a couple of mountains, at that, so the story goes, was the origin of the sport called track.

Put together these inbred characteristics and you have the most ancient of sports, track and field.
