The Coyotes competed in multiple activities throughout the course of the day, placing high in many categories.
Each activity is broken down into sections that are categorized by top athletes to lowest ranking athletes.
Each Coyote has two places; one where they placed in the section they participated in and the second where they placed overall out of all the other athletes in the activity.
One of the first activities to take place was the 100-meters. The Coyotes ran in the fourth, sixth, and seventh sections for the 100.

Moving away from races, next up was the shot put, discus and javelin. Rather than sections, the activities are categorized into flights based on the athletes abilities.
