At a Ancient Greek Olympics.

Athletics is the international name for Track and Field.
Track and field events have been around since at least the ancient Roman times. They held races on Mount Olympus, hence the name "Olympics".

Track and field has been a part of the Modern Olympics since the first Modern Games in 1896. The first event known to be competed at the Ancient Olympics was the stade run, a foot race of approximately 190 meters. So it could be said that track, or an ancient variation of track, has been competed at the Olympics since the first Ancient Olympics. History states that the pentathlon was included at the Games in 708 BC. This pentathlon consisted of discus, jumping, javelin, running, and wrestling. Discus and javelin are the first known 'field' events competed at the Olympics.
I can't say where the first modern track and field events were held, but they have their origins in the ancient Greek Olympics. The ancient Greeks believed that the home of the gods was at the top of mount Olympus, and at the base of the mountain the Greeks held regular athletic competitions in things such as running, jumping, javelin throwing, wrestling, and other such things, to honor the gods.
The summer and winter olympics are meets that are held every 4 years. Although during the meet there are events that take place. e.g (track and field events and swimming events in the summer olympics and skiing or snowboarding in the winter olympics)
Track and field first originated in the ancient Greek world.

Probably track and field, since it has been in the Olympics since the original games in ancient Greece.
Aristarchus of Samos was a ancient Greek astronomer and mathematician.
The ancient Olympic Games were restricted to male Greek contestants only. The modern games are not restricted by nationality or gender and are, in fact, called the International Olympics. Also, while most of the original events (pentathlon, wrestling, boxing, running, etc.) have been revived, pankration, a brutal form of combat similar to modern mixed martial arts, was not. At the same time, many new sports have been added to the modern Olympics, including the decathlon (twice as many track and field events as the pentathlon), judo and a biathlon that combines skiing and riflry. Also, the marathon race, a staple of the modern Olympics, was not among the ancient events.
Four events. It is the same for any track meet, on any level.
The track and field events start on Saturday.
