The establishment of the modern Olympic Games at the end of the 19th century marked a new high for track and field. The Olympic athletics programmecomprising track and field events plus a marathon race, contained many of the foremost sporting competitions of the Summer Olympics. The Olympics also consolidated the use of metric measurements in international track and field events, both for race distances and for measuring jumps and throws.
The Olympic athletics programme greatly expanded over the next decades, and track and field contests remained among the Games' most prominent.
Track and field
The Olympics was the elite competition for track and field, and only amateur sportsmen could compete. Track and field continued to be a largely amateur sport, as this rule was strictly enforced: Jim Thorpe was stripped of his track and field medals from the Olympics after it was revealed that he had taken expense money for playing baseball, violating Olympic amateurism rules, before the Games. His medals were reinstated 29 years after his death.

Carl Lewis was among the athletes who helped increase track and field's profile. With the rise of numerous regional championships, as well as the growth in Olympic-style multi-sport events such as the Commonwealth Games and the Pan-American Gamescompetitions between international track and field athletes became widespread.
From the s onwards, the sport gained more exposure and commercial appeal through television coverage and the increasing wealth of nations. After over half a century of amateurism, the amateur status of the sport began to be displaced by growing professionalism in the late s. Many world records were broken in this period, and the added political element between competitors of the United States, East Germanyand the Soviet Union, in reaction to the Cold Waronly served to stoke the sport's popularity.
The fact that we recorded all together live enabled us to improve musically, each one as a unit and at the same time all together as a whole. We worked a lot before the recordings and now, I think, that we play tighter and our jams flow better. I cannot neglect the collaboration with Billy Anderson. So, how is he as a person and how is working with him?
Working with Billy Anderson was an amazing experience for us. We were amazed by the way he worked. Although he is very experienced and has a precise idea about sound, he was always listening to our thoughts and our suggestions and tried to make them work and bring out the best possible result. What is the impact of Billy Anderson on the character of the album what do you think would sound different without him? Billy taught us techniques that we have never thought of before.
The recordings took place in our home studio and this was our first attempt to record live there. He provided solutions in order that we could play as loud as we wanted to and avoid problems with spill.
He also showed us some tricks that helped us with the drums and the vocals recordings. How did that collaboration start and how it did work out? We got in touch with Malleus while we were recording. We know that they are the best in our genre and we are very happy that our debut album is designed by them. Do you have an official release date? The 29th of September is the official release date of the album, both in CD and Vinyl.
Looking back is there something you would change on any of your releases? That was the tone of his voice at that moment. After a Demo an EP and a split, and a really good name on the local scene do feel things have become a bit easier for the band? This is always going to be our passion and our hobby, financed by our regular jobs.
Do you see this movement as something positive or maybe just some weird trend? First of all we believe that this new movement is global. Many legendary bands reunite, tour and play in sold out venues and many new bands from all around the world release amazing albums. Last Summer I believe you released a split tape with Wight!

I would like to hear your opinions about that band. Personally, I believe Wight have released one of the most underrated stoner albums of We are very happy and proud about that release. When we got in touch with Rene singer and guitar player of Wight we liked his idea about releasing a split tape together a lot.
The result really exceedded our expectations. The artwork was beautiful and unique! What other contemporary bands do you find interesting?
