There are three major things to remember and accomplish here.

1) Speed

Now, I'm not sure if it's just me being cack handed but I find holding the controller upside down, as i'm right handed, means I can use the palm of my hand to wiggle the 'new' right stick left and right as fast as humanely possible! You can use this method in any other stick wiggling event too.

Anyway, the key is to build up your speed meter so you have roughly one and a half blue squares left. Dependent on the angle of your throw, you have room for marginal error.

2) Angle

This part is the easiest. Make sure you get anywhere between and including fourty to fourty five degrees.

3) Do not foul!

As tempting as it is to run over the line and think your going to 'beat the machine', you'll find this doesn't register your score as an achievement. No means no!

After just a few attempts, that's achievement unlocked!
