    In my Opinion, this is the hardest achievement of the game ( Close to bump-osaurus ) . You will need above 590 overall score to have a chance to win it.

    Sprint 100m :

    Start and end boost is a must to get first.

    It very important that you run as fast as you can and focusing getting your knees high while doing so, keep a steady rhythm.

    Start Boost : You need to crouch and have one arm forward and arm backward ( Look the AI to have a clue ). What i did is once it says to get ready on screen, i counted in my head to 3 then start running even it i didnt hear the start sound, the game always start at the same moment offline.

    End Boost : When you get close to the finish line, put both arms straight in front of you and keep running fast with high knees.

    My Best time was 7.27 seconds doing this.

    Javelin Throw :

    On this one running is important but no need to run as fast as in the sprint. Focus more on keeping your knees high. When you get to the green zone, crouch just a bit then get back in stand position while throwing the javelin straight up in front of you. Keeping the arm straight helps. Hopefully, you'll get above 110m.

    Highest throw was 119.87m

    Long jump :

    This one is really easy to get first when you know this trick.
    Running as fast as the sprint is a must on this one.
    When you get to the green zone, jump high and start doing the windmill with both arms, it give around 2 meters boost to your jump and make this event a piece of cake.

    My best jump was 13.82 but you can do much better than this.

    Discus throw :

    My worst enemy lol, i dont know why but i had a lot of trouble getting constant high throw in this one. Try to crouch a bit before throwing and get back up has you throw. That all i can say :P

    My best throw is 83.23m

    Hurdles :

    Now it time to give it all you got.

    Run Fast, High knees, steady rhythm and jump when you get to the green zone. Also, dont forget the start and end boost!!!

    I did about 15 seconds.

    So this it, hopefully you got that hell achievement!!! :)

    This is my first guide to this site and hope you enjoy, please keep in mind that english is not my first language but i wanted to help you guys.
    Also, please dont forget to vote!! :P

    Hi there,
    If any of you are still finding it hard to get the Flame Stadium Champion achievement for Track and Field, or just want to get better scores, you might find this new video guide useful. It features a member of the Rare test team and hopefully you'll be able to copy his actions for some great results.

    With such a high TA ratio this achievement looks pretty intimidating, but with a little practice and patience this achievement is very obtainable. As a precursor for this solution I found out after going for this achievement that the track and field mini games are only the individual events and lets you just practice these.

    Anyways lets get down to business

    Sprint:
    This one comes down to your start and finish. If you keep high knees throughout you will finish in the top four. The better your running form is the better you'll do. Luckily this is your first event and if you don't get a boost start you can just restart. To get a boost start you need to start low when and stay low as if you were actually running in the 100m dash. I've also noticed that you can start running before they the gun goes off. I haven't been able to get a boost from doing this but it is close to the same thing. If you false start they just make you start again so it is worth a try. At the end you just need to lean forward like you would at the end of a normal 100m dash. If you lean too soon it slows you down so don't do it to early.

    From KDiamond1973
    As for both running events. After "Ready" command you will hear 3 loud heartbeats. Start to run 0.5 sec after the 3rd one - that won't be counted as a faltstart and you'll gain a tremendous advantage against the opponents. If you won't screw the running itself afterward you'll easily win both races.

    I've finished in 4th through 1st with this method. Anywhere in this area your scores are going to be really close and as long as your close in this event you will do fine. I've found that discuss and long jump have the easiest scores to take advantage of the rest of the competition.

    Javelin:
    This event is hard to finish first (for me) but I'm always in the top 3. I've looked at many videos and guides for this (trying to get circuit breaker *pulls hair out*) and I've found out that throwing it underhand or how you would normally throw a javelin work decent, the sure fire way to go is to by getting a decent running start and then as if your arm actually was the javelin throw a devastating punch. Your arm should be 45 to 65 degrees because any higher or lower you are taking away from the most powerful angles. Throwing in the 110s to 120 will get you in the top 4 which will keep you in the running.

    I've noticed that there isn't just one computer player out to get you like in most other games so even if you finish in the top 3 in each of these events you could find yourself in first place.

    Long Jump:
    This is my favorite event. You use the same running technique as in the sprint and javelin. High controlled knees. This event is all about the timing. You have about 1.5 seconds after the area turns green that you can jump. If you wait until the very end to jump you can easily jump in the 14s. This is where the mini game practice helped me a lot. The windmill technique will also help you out but I found it hard to not do this. I would run, wait til the end, jump do one swing with my arms forward, and land on my butt like they do in the game. You stay in the air longer if you land on your butt and I think this is why it is my favorite because I can be a goon about video games.

    This is where I shoot forward in the competition because the other computers are in the 12s at the highest and that gives them 120 points. You scoring 140+ will put you in the lead for sure even if you had mediocre first two event. All you have to do now is hang on.

    Discuss:
    This event can be tricky to do outstanding in, but even if you do just average you will be in good standings. One thing that throws a lot of people off is their back swings. If you go too far and rotate your body you will accidentally throw it sometimes only going 40 or even 4 meters. If you make a line with your arms 45 and -45 with your arm towards the TV up, this will give you a good idea of where you will be throwing. Your arm should stay along that path while you throw. A controlled arm back and a steady fast arm forward will put in the in 80+ range easily. I've spun after throwing and put a little jump into it too but it doesn't seem to help me any more. The highest that you'll see in this is mid 80s so if you can get a great throw higher than that you'll be in awesome position.

    Hurdles:
    The last event. This is where I started to get worried. No need to panic! There are a lot of areas to cut off time. I found that if you start early like in the sprint event this helps better than the boost. Unlike the long jump you want to jump AS SOON as the hurdle turns green. You don't have to jump high and as soon as you jump if you start running before you land you will keep your speed that you had before. Don't hesitate otherwise they WILL catch you. At the end it is very important to lean to get that boost. And as always high controlled knees is important and a must for speed. If you finish in the top 4 or even 6 with a small lead you can pull out a victory. The hurdles are scored a lot closer than the other events so even if you get beat by what you think is a lot, it is a lot closer than it appears.

    I finished with 605 and didn't do that great in any events except for long jump where I jumped 14.27. The javelin I threw 115 and the discuss 84 something. The sprint I got second and the hurdles I got third in. You don't have to be in any sort of real shape for this, but it does help in the sprints and hurdles because you can get tired. I am a runner and have been sprinting for some time and it was still difficult for me to do more than two whole competitions at one time so when you give it a go.. Bring your A game! Good luck to everyone and I hope this helps!

    After spending a bit of time on this, and coming back multiple times to try and finish this game, it finally all came together. I recommend practicing the events separate, as you will eventually figure out ways that work for you. This is how I originally figured out javelin, long jump, and knew I could get a good time in the running events. Some of my info my be doubled from above, but here's what I did.

    Run Point Total - 611(It was a dream run, first in every event)
    Sprint - 7.10
    I have my kinect set at about knee level for this. When it shows the word set, get into a runners stance, with one hand back and bend over. Once the text goes away, say "one mississippi" and take off running. Keep your knees high, arms moving back and forth, and don't stop. Go as fast as you can, but try to keep a consistent form. Even if you think you are early, do not stop unless it says false start. On my best runs, I had starts that seemed to come before the guy says go, but it registered as valid. Once you cross the last thin white line(last 10 meters) bend over and you'll boost over the line. Only move one if you have below a 7.65.

    Javelin - 114.65
    Again, I kept my kinect at knee level. For this, I could only get a good throw with my left hand. When running, focus on getting high knees but you do not have to run anywhere near as fast. For your arm, I kept it at a position slightly above what the kinect would register as me trying to pause. Make sure you keep it away from your body, and don't keep it close. Run, and at the green swing your arm through with a slight increase in angle, but do not bend your elbow. I was consistently getting above 110. Only move on if you get above 105, or place around 4 or better.

    Long Jump - 13.22
    This one has the potential to get back a bunch of points. The AI won't get above 13, and it isn't too hard to get a high 12, or even 14. Run like you do with the Sprint, high knees, arms back and forth, and as fast as you can with good form. Once you hit the green, jump up as high as you can and swing yours arms or hands in circles. Swinging your hands works most of the time, but it is more consistent to swing your arms. You need to win this event, or at least be within a few points of the top place.

    Discus - 86.21
    Until my dream run, my best was 56. That 56 came in a tournament where I lost by 2 points, 590 vs 588. For this move your Kinect about to shoulder/chest level. Retune you kinect by pressing Y so that it can see your arms fully. Select the discus with your right hand, and take a step forward with your left foot so that you are in a straight wide stance. Similar to Javelin, you want to keep your arm straight as much as you can, and away from your body. Begin by twisting to your right, and bring your right hand behind you. Bend your knees a bit, and your right hand should be a bit below waist level. From here, swing through with your hips, and bring your arm slightly up in angle, unwinding your hips and straightening your stance. Half way through, you will want to bring your back foot(right) forward and while swinging you should step forwards. So you will end with a similar foot stance as you started, just opposite. Continue twisting your hips, turning, swinging your arm forwards, but once you are near the end of a full swing, you can bend your elbow. Your end stance will have you ending facing to the left. This reminds me of a golf swing. Aftering doing really bad in discus, this was what I tried during my winning run. Hit 84. 82, 86. You need to be in the top 3 to have a chance here.

    Hundles - 15.03
    Move the kinect back to the sprint level and retune it. The same as sprinting, get into a runners stance, wait for the word SET and say one mississippi. This seemed to have a slightly longer wait, so you may want to say one mississippi two. This could also be because I knew I was about to unlock the achievement and was slightly excited to get it. Nonetheless, I false started 2 times in a row and had to wait for the word Go. Again, run as fast as you can with good form, high knees, and when the hurdle turns green jump. Try and jump sort of like a gallop or how the game is doing it for the most optimal run. I wasn't able to do this so I ended up stopping and jumping with both foot and clumsily getting back up to speed. I also hit a hurdle here by jumping a bit too late, so I could have gotten a better time.


    Hopefully some of these tips help! Looking back, this is NOT as hard as it sounds, it just take s a bit of practice. 6 months before I got the achievement, I gave this achievement a few
    tries with no luck. I got nowhere near and lost hope. The day before getting this achievement, I gave it a new try and got 5th, 4th, 2nd, 6th, 5th. I was incredibly sore the next day(the day of writing this) but wanted to give it a shot. On my second try, I completely dominated and won by 28. This achievement will take some practice, sweet, and time. You WILL be sore the days after doing is. But it is not as hard as the ratio makes it sound.

    Any other information needed, feel free to message me.

    This is the final (at least hardest) challenge in Kinect spots. Here are complete solutions to each event, then put them all together to get this achievement. For me, the hardest event is the hurdles. I could never figure out when to jump in order to not barely knock it over, therefore I'd get close to last each time. As long as you do good on the first 4 events (3 wins and 1 event in the top 3) then you should still pop the achievement even coming in near last. Also, The sprint and hurdles are best to only do in the winning round or when you are trying the full content so you do not consume all of your energy. all of the others you should practice via the minigames menu.

    1. Sprint
    put your hands on your knees and bend down once the race is about to start. A second or two after it says ready, start running. Before the go icon appears on screen. This will give you a tremendous advantage. Putting you far ahead of everyone. If you did get the start boost. If you DO NOT get the start boost, restart the round. run through the race with high knees and low hands. once you get somewhat near the end bend down like in the start boost but keep running (If that makes sense) You should easily be able to win the race and get #1. The further you beat the second guy, the more points you will bank, so do not quit trying once they are far behind you. (you should get around 7 and a half seconds.

    2. Javelin
    This is the hardest to score big on of the first 4 rounds, but you can still fairly easily get in the top 3. Grab your javelin and start running like you did in the sprint, except not moving your hand or arm that you have the javelin in. Once you get near the end of the green area lunge forward with your arm going back and over your head as fast as you can. You should get above 107 each time.

    3. Long Jump
    Not terribly hard to get 1st on, as long as you do not get a foul jump by jumping past the end of the track. Start running like you did in the sprint and jump right at the end of the green area. once you are in the air take your hands (That are low when you are running) backwards and swing them around in a windmill twice. This should yield around 11-14 meters when executed properly.

    4. Discus
    Really easy once you get the technique down. Have not heard anyone talk about this one yet. grab your discus and lunge forward like in the javelin with your hands a little above a 45 degree angle. You should get between 84 and 95 each time.

    5. Hurdles.
    My worst enemy. You have to run like you did in the sprint, using the start and end boost, except the race is longer and has big things in the middle that you should not slam into. Your best bet is to jump as close to the hurdle as possible, while not running into it. Right when you land start running again, there is no time to waste or you will slow down. You should aim for around 15 seconds.

    Now, put all these together to have a successful round.

    EDIT: I finally popped the achievement. I got 1st in the sprint, 5th in the javelin, 1st in the long jump, (not by much), first in discus by quite a bit, and 7th in the hurdles. I ended up with 590, and the second guy with 588, so it was very close.

    Also as a side note, I got circuit breaker for a second time on my winning round haha.
Do you have a question about this achievement? Please post it in the Kinect Sports Forum
