Skeet Shooting
In this event, you shoot clay pigeons fired from the blinds. There are seven stations to complete, each at a different position on the shooting range. You may only have to shoot one pigeon (singles) at a time, or you may be required to shoot two pigeons (doubles) fired at the same time.

Commodore users must use a joystick for this event.

Press the fire button to start a station. Move the joystick up to fire a pigeon. Then position the cursor by moving the joystick. Press the joystick fire button to fire the gun.

Position the gunsight just in front of the pigeon, keeping in mind that there is a delay between the time you fire the gun and actually hit the clay pigeon. Your score is based on the number of pigeons you have successfully shot. Each round is played at a different station. You don't have unlimited ammunition, so aim carefully!

Fencing
This is the gentlerranly way to fight; it takes a sharp eye to foil your enemy. Block perries and jabs while you try to psuh your opponent back into his territory and gain the upper hand. Try to get the most direct hits in the time available to be the winner.

Commodore users must use a joystick to play this event.

Move the joystick forward to push your opponent into his territory. Pull the joystick back to retreat. Press the fire button to lunge towards your opponent. Use the Parry and Riposte maneuvres to block your opponent's moves. Commodore users must score 5 direct hits to win each round.

Please note that this event loads in two parts, first on Side A and then on Side B.

Diving
Not even the circus high-dive clown can do these moves. As you approach the edge of the diving platform, prepare a mental image of the perfect dive: flawless pike, effortless spins and tucks, and a smooth entry. It takes control and expert training to please these judges.

Commodore users must use a joystick to play this event.

FIRE - Pike

Dive - Fire Button Not Pressed

Triple Jump
Going for the gold is more than a hop, skip and jump! It takes speed, accuracy and strength to go the distance. See if you're quick enough and strong enough to jump into the record books.

Commodore users must use a joystick to play this event.

Press the fire button to start the jump as you approach the take-off board. Alter the jump angle when in air by moving the joystick up or down.

Stretch your skills to the limit, but don't trip up. See if you can keep up with the other racers and still have enough stamina to jump over the hurdles. Watch out for false starts!
