200 metres

Definition of the noun 200 metres

What does 200 metres mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. [athletics] A sprint race over 200 metres.

Explanation

  1. The 200 metres is a sprint running event. On an outdoor 400 m track, the race begins on the curve and ends on the home straight, so a combination of techniques are needed to successfully run the race. A slightly shorter race, called the stadion and run on a straight track, was the first recorded event at the ancient Olympic Games. The 200 m places more emphasis on speed endurance than shorter sprint distances as athletes rely on different energy systems during the longer sprint.
