If there's one way to simulate the abilities of Olympic athletes, the developers figured, it was the pounding of the A button until your skin starts to peel off. No matter whether you choe triple jump, canoeing, pole vault or any other of the events, your job was to pound that A button to build up your power level.

If you had the NES Max or Advantage controllers, the game was way too easy. If you used a regular controller, it was impossible.
