    You have to complete 3 speed related badges to get this achievement.

    80 TPM and 60 Seconds Sprint can be done in one game. Connect a second controller and let the other player lose by stacking the blocks to the top and do the same with your main profile, but a bit slower. You will reach way over 100 TPM that way and finish Sprint in about 7 Seconds (and get a win for another badge).

    An easy way to get 30 LPM is to play Battle against a second controller or Tetribot with your Handicap set to 10. Delete 3 or 4 lines and then stack the blocks to the top. If you get lucky you will reach between 30 and 35 LPM.

    /edit:
    The 60 Seconds Sprint method seems to be patched. It is worth to try to get it offline without the patch.

    Jamal2807I did this without the patch! Its possible but really hard you have to practice a lot . Just one Note.I remember complete 40 Lines in exactly 1:00 Minutes! And i didnt get the badge.Then i notice it said UNDER 1 Minute. So you have to complete it actually in 0:59 Seconds.

    TimmayToo bad there's no way to get the game from XBL without the patch now. 360 used to have the patches separately listed to delete.

    vSullyJust got sub-60 second Sprint after getting exactly 60 seconds and it not counting. This ratio would be ridiculous if everyone had to do it legit.

    All I can tell you is that you need to practice. A lot. Play a little every day. Try to minimize use of the hold queue (I didn't use it at all).

    Also, I used my 19" TV instead of my 48" to have a more compact field of vision so to better recognize upcoming pieces.

    Here's my replay to get an idea of how fast you need to go:

    After the patch for this achievement, it has become significantly harder to do, however it is still possible. There are 3 challenges that you have to complete to get this achievement

    - TPM - 80 TPM in one game
    - 60 Second Sprint - complete sprint in under 1 minute
    - LPM - 30 lines per minute achieved in one game

    Getting the required TPM and LPM will be achieved naturally as you play this game, but if you are struggling to achieve this then the next challenge is much harder. To earn 60 second sprint award and earn this achievement, you must clear sprint mode in under 1 minute. This means you must have an LPM of 40, and a very high TPM (mine was 177 when I achieved this).

    Some helpful thoughts for the sprint is that you need a balance between consistency, and speed. Clearing 40 single lines is very slow compared to clearing 10 tetrises. This is due to the animation time for the line clears is the samefor singles and and a tetris. I would also very strongly recommend starting at level 15 in sprint as it is at lot easier to play fast when the gravity is instant.

    One last piece of advice is don't be afraid to restart. The time limit is VERY strict and a single mistake can ruin your run for the time, but at the same time, don't restart over a single mistake. As long as you can keep stacking for tetrises, the mistake should cost little time as you will get one triple instead of a tetris.

    Good luck in earning this achievement
