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 2: Discus
Releasing the discus at the wrong time can have disastrous results. This is just one of them.
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 4: Javelin
Once a speed has been established the player must press the 'Throw' key at just the right time. Here it was pressed too soon
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 2: Discus
First the player decides on the action key to release the discus
