What is 'athletics'? Not very specific, is it?
I think they use "athletics" to refer to the track and field events (?).
II have to agree - I wish they had split out 'athletics' into it's component events. My guesses were: 100 yard (meter) dash, marathon, boxing, and wrestling. Close, but no cigar. One can see what I bean by breaking it out when one compares the marathon to the heptathalon: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heptathlon
