Tips, Cheats, and Easter Eggs

Activision Decathlon, The

Easy running
Substitute the joystick with paddles during any running event. Then, alternately tap each paddle button rapidly for an easier way to run.

Higher pole vaulting
Repeatedly tap Fire as the pole is released.

Skipping On Air
During the Pole-Vault, hit the button a few times rapidly to release the pole (instead of just once). You'll go higher.

Use Paddles on Running Events
On any running event, such as the 100m or 1500m, unplug the joystick and plug in the paddles. Now rapidly tap the buttons on the paddles. You can get much more speed this way instead of shaking the joystick back and forth.
