- controls: use their feet to run, two big joysticks with a button on the side and a handrail in order to keep your balance
- 100 metres: you use the stick to ''launch yourself'' at the start, before starting to run. At the end, you have to time a jump.
- Hammer Throw: you have to press the button to hold the hammer, use the sticks to make the hammer rotate, and then you stop pressing the button at the right time to make your throw.
- Javelin Throw: you start by running, then use the right stick to control the angle of your throw.
- Archery: you have to throw arrows at nine targets, with more points awarded if they hit closer to the center. You use the left stick in order to aim, and the right stick in order to use the bow and shoot arrows. The amount of time you spend drawing your bow, as well as weather conditions such as the wind, can have an impact on the trajectory of your arrows.
