The crowd grows silent as you climb into the starting blocks. You glance quickly at your opponent as your leg muscles tense in anticipation of the crack of the starting gun. It's the ultimate armchair athletes' event! Set a World's Record in the 100-Meter dash from the comfort of your favorite chair.

The Events

This is the classic sports title that started it all-Konami's Track and Field for the Nintendo. Track and Field pits you against some fierce competition in all of your favorite track events-including the 100-Meter Dash, Long Jump, 110-Meter Hurdles, Javelin Throw, Skeet Shooting, Triple Jump, Archery, and the High Jump. For even more action, play one or two players at either the novice or expert settings.

ProTip: The key to winning at Track and Field is rapid fire! In combination with skill and expert use of your game controller, rapid fire lets you go the extra distance that makes you the champ!

Go for the World's Record

In each event you can work to beat your own records or aim to beat the World Record displayed in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. But before you go for the top spot you must qualify. There are two things to remember. First, you must beat or match the qualifying time, score, or distance in each event. You get three tries to make it. Second, avoid fouling or you'll be disqualified. Depending on the event, there are different ways to foul. Jump the gun in the 100-Meter Dash or the 110-Meter Hurdles and you'll foul. In the Javelin Throw, Long Jump, and Triple Jump you must avoid running beyond the limit marker. In each event you're allowed three fouls before you're disqualified.

Hit the Track for Classic Sports Action

Track and Field combines many of the world's classic sports events into a classic game. And if you've mastered Track and Field, check out Konami's sequel, Track and Field 2. You're just a hop, skip, and a "long-jump" away from a field-full of fun.
