Eleven Track 'N' Field style events are recreated in this joystick-waggling based game. Five are simple running events of different distances ranging from 100 meters to 1500 meters. Unlike Daley Thompson's Decathlon the longer events don't involve a different technique, or different performance measurements, making the 1500m quite tiring. There are also three throwing events (Javelin, Discus and Hammer), and the High / Long / Triple Jump events. Each event has a pre-defined world record to chase.


Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 1: Running
The start of a race. The computer runs as white and the player as black. The countdown is the traditional Get, Set, Go!
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 6: High Jump
Then the player repeats a sequence to build up the jumpers concentration. After several rounds the jumper starts to run and the 'Jump' key must be pressed at the right time.
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 5: Long Jump
Very similar to the javelin. The player bashes the run keys to achieve some speed and then presses the 'Jump' button when the character reaches the plate
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 7: Pole Vault
Very similar to the High jump. The player sets the height, runs to build up speed, then has to press the 'Vault' button at the right time, (not like this).
