Play the oldskool version at Konami's New Track and Field website at NewTrackAndField.com

Tip: first play it normally til you finished the hurdle run as well, then press start again, and start bashing your cursors from the start; it should not register it as a false start, and thus you can get a 0.01 time on the 100 meter dash ;)

The scoreboard doesn't seem to function properly though (nor do the graphics all the time..), since I keep getting a second place, no matter what, and I can't enter a player name for the scoreboard.
ah well, let's keep :RNFF:
