Heptathlon is an ultimate sporting competition for those who enjoy different sport. This old Greek Olympian discipline may not be the most celebrated one, but it is surely underrated.  If you enjoy competitions in running, jumping, throwing and pushing, you don’t have to wait for different competition, because you can have it all in one event.  Winning a competition that test you in so many disciplines at one is the ultimate victory and is definitely worth trying.

Men and women compete in heptathlon differently, although both compete in seven disciplines. While women need to complete 100 metres hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 metres, long jump, javelin throw and 800 metres, while men need to qualify in 60 meres, long jump, shot put, high jump, 60 metres hurdles, pole vault and 1000 metres. Just like the sport itself is very diverse, so are the injuries commonly sustained in it. In addition to bruises and cuts that result mostly from falls, sprains and strains are very common among heptathletes. 

 

This sport requires a lot of movement, so it can be very traumatic. Fractures, muscle pulls or tears often happen in the large muscles of the legs. Knee and shoulder injuries are some of the most serious heptathlon injuries that may lead to serious consequences and may require a surgery. Properly fitted sound footwear is crucial for safe competition in this discipline. Good warm-up before the start is essential, as well as the cool down during the breaks. As this sport is very demanding, you’ll need to train a lot before competing. Poor training may be one of the main reasons for trauma in heptathlon.
