    Normally, (at the Olympics), the things that participants go through are divided into separate activities....the vault, the parallel bars, the rings, etc. I have not seen participants running between these activities. Perhaps you are thinking of a sport unique to one country ?

    You might be thinking of an 'obstacle course'.
