Specialised definition of the noun Agonistics

Glossary of sports

the competitive events of ancient Greece. The sport disciplines of the competition, called Agon, were divided into three main groups: gymnastic (physical), hippo (with the horse), and artistic. These types of disciplines formed the basic program of most ancient sport festivals. The gymnastic and hippo agonistics, called athletics, were practiced for the most part professionally (until the time of the Roman emperors), and were rewarded with material privileges for the victors. The "agon principle" stands for the performance and competition principle, which is an essential element of sport. (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)
