The 100-YARD DASH is a track and field event of 100 yards or 91.44 metres. It was part of the Commonwealth Games until 1966, and was included in the decathlon of the Olympics , at least in 1904. It is not generally used in international events (having been replaced by the 100-metre sprint ). However, it is still occasionally run in the United States in certain competitions.
