Impossible to miss if your going for completion, the easiest events are Trampolining and Weightlifting IMO, just finish in the top 4 places to qualify.

If you just want this one achievement then go to Olympics Mode and select Easy, pick your best event from the selection offered and try to qualify in that event. If you fail you can restart the mode over again or try for the next one
This is basically pointless, you may as well get this while working towards the other achievements in the game, please see below:


Best to to this on Medium games as Hard isn't unlocked until you finish a games anyway so might as well go for it from the start, you need all golds here for the Kit Collector achievement anyway.

There will be 20 events in total for the Medium games and you have to play all 20, you can pick the ones you find easier if you like but keep in mind that you will have to play them all in the end!

Remember you don't have to come first to qualify for the finals, mostly you have to come in at least 3rd, but some you can come in 4th.

If you fail to qualify or aren't going to win then best thing to do is hit the guide button and go back to dashboard, then select continue to start that event over and try again .... or use a retry token, the load times aren't that bad if you don't have any tokens though
