Student or Learner
Is this understanding correct?
'sports such as running and jumping'
1. athletics - BrE
2. track and field - AmE
BTW, LDCE says:
athlectics (2) AmE physical activities such as
sports and exercise
I wonder what is the British equivalent.
You do hear 'track and field' used a bit in the UK, but not that much- the [hrase 'track and field events' springs to mind. For the second, I'd just use 'exercise'.
