    ===============================================================================
    1)  Introduction
    ===============================================================================
    Welcome to my World Class Track Meet FAQ/Walkthrough.  If you are like me, you
    have fond memories playing this game as a child.  Let's face it, very few of
    you are probably just discovering this game now, but rather played it as a
    young child, and now are reliving the memories.  
    
    World Class Track Meet was released as its own game as a pack-in included with
    the Nintendo NES "Power Set" bundle, but is most commonly found on a 3-in-1 
    cart combined with Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt.  The game was designed and
    developed by Bandai, and was even released by Bandai as a game called "Stadium
    Events".  Stadium Events was released in September 1987.  In 1987, Nintendo was
    just booming.  Nintendo NES was released in 1985 but it took a few years for it
    to really start to catch on, and there was a lot of press and concerned parents
    that Nintendo was making their kids lazy.  Not much has changed.  To satisfy
    the concerned irrational parents and capitalize, Nintendo wanted to release a
    game that would force children to get excercise while playing.  Instead of
    making an excercize peripheral of their own, they decided it would be smarter
    to negotiate a deal with Bandai, which also meant they would not have to 
    compete with them. The negotiated a deal and purchased the rights to the
    Family Fun Fitness pad (this is what the "Power Pad" was called before it was
    rebranded), and the 2 games that Bandai released for it: Stadium Events and 
    Athletic World. The game Stadium Events was promptly pulled from store
    shelves, and it is unknown what happened to the unsold stock.  Only a few
    hundred, possibly over a thousand (but most likely less) copies of Stadium
    Events were sold before it was pulled from store shelves.  Only a few hundred
    copies of Stadium Events have since been found by collectors, making it
    a hot collector's item, and by far the hardest officially licensed game to find
    for the system.  Nintendo rebranded Bandai's "Family Fun Fitness" pad and 
    turned it into the "Power Pad". They also rebranded the game "Stadium Events"
    and turned it into "World Class Track Meet". The only difference in the two
    games is the title screen. Everything else about the game - the levels, the
    music, the game play - is all exactly the same.  I'm unsure why Nintendo 
    didn't re-brand the game Athletic World - Bandai later re-released that game
    a few years later as a game compatible with Nintendo's Power Pad.
    
    There were not many good Power Pad games for the NES.  Heck, there were barely
    any Power Pad Games at all, let alone good ones.  In my opinion, this is the
    best Power Pad game on the NES.  I'm not saying this game is all that great, I
    am just saying that all the other Power Pad games just suck, making this game
    the best of all the Power Pad Games.  Don't get me wrong, though, because this
    is still a very fun game to play, if you have the Power Pad.  If you do not
    have a Power Pad, you can still play the game with a standard NEScontroller by
    tapping A and B in an alternating-repeating pattern to run, but the experience
    doesn't come close to the real time, leg moving, blood pressure raising fun of
    the Power Pad!  How many other video games can literally give you excercise as
    you play?
    
    All in all, this is a very fun game, provided that you have the Power Pad.  For
    the cheap low price of $5, which is how much this game is commonly found for
    nowadays in online shops, or if you are lucky enough to find it locally at pawn
    shops, flea markets, or thrift stores.  I would recommend it to anybody.  A
    bonus is that this game commonly is found as part of a 3-in-1 cartridge, so it
    comes with Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt.  You can also purchase this game
    as a standalone game all by itself, but that is less common.
    
    Author's Note: This game probably isn't as much fun if you don't have legs.

         it took me 1 day to finish this, but it was under a period of 5 hours. 
         This FAQ, which is 33 KB, is much more thorough and complete than the
         other one, which is only at 5 KB.  This game really needed a good guide,
         and since I've been playing it a lot lately, I figured I'd be the one to
         do it.  I certainly hope you enjoy it, and if you know of any possible
         information I left out, please let me know, and I'll add it to the guide

    '->  Guide started today.  After talking about Stadium Events a lot on the NES
         Message Boards, I decided to write a FAQ for both this game and also one
         for Stadium Events, since they're pretty much the same game.  It should be
         done in about a day.  Enjoy.
    
    1.2) FAQ Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Very recently, I have gotten way into NES, more so than I have ever been. I
    have always been an NES fan, but recently I have started collecting.  Although
    I always owned this game as a child, recently I picked up a copy of Super Mario
    Bros/Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet for $1, and a boxed Power Pad for $3.  
    Although I am trying to collect as many NES carts as I can, I also play them
    frequently.  This is a game that I've been playing now that I have a Power Pad,
    and boy, am I reliving the memories!
    
    This isn't the type of game that requires too much thinking in order to play
    it and successfully get through it.  Just jump on the Power Pad and move your
    feet!  It is not an RPG, you don't need to remember names of people or towns,
    or use clues, or level up, or anything like that.  It's a fun mindless game
    full of fun and entertainment.  I'm not dissing RPGs, I am merely saying that
    a good thing about this game is how little you have to think to play it.  It
    is a game that anybody can enjoy, from ages 7 to 77.  
    
    I am sitting here on my computer writing this FAQ because I have shown a 
    recent interest in this game, and I want to share my knowledge with everybody
    else who doesn't know as much.  Sure, there isn't too much to talk about in
    a short game like this, but I can still share all that I know.  I hope you get
    a lot out of it, and if you know of anything I'm missing, please feel free to
    email me with the information that I missed, and I'll promptly add it into
    the guide, crediting you as necessary.  I hope you enjoy this FAQ.  Enjoy!
    
    
    
    
    1.3) Controls
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This game is different than ordinary NES Games because it's primary controller
    is the Power Pad, rather than an ordinary controller.  
    
    Put a Power Pad into controller slot-1 on the NES, and MAKE SURE THE POWER PAD
    IS SET TO SIDE B.  There are 2 sides of the Power Pad.  Make sure it's on
    Side B.  On the top-right of the Power Pad it will say either "Side A" or 
    "Side B", but if you can't figure out which side is side B, side B is the side
    where there are 12 circles, 6 blue (on the left) and 6 red (on the left).
    
    .----------/     \----------.
    |  Power Pad        side B  |
    |                           |

    '---------------------------'
    
    That is a standard Nintendo brand Power Pad, set on Side B.  Here are the
    Controls:
    
    Button 1 & 2:  Use these buttons if you're playing in 1-Player mode.  Put your
                   left foot on Button 1, and your right foot on Button 2.  
                   Obviously, this is how you control how fast your runner sprints.
                   Repeatidly tap 1 and 2 in corresponding order to run.  To
                   jump, simply jump up into the air in real life, and the runner
                   will jump on the screen.
    
    Button 3 & 4:  Use these buttons if you're the 2nd player in 2-Player mode.  
                   Put your left foot on Button 3, and your right foot on Button 4.
                   Obviously, this is how you control how fast your runner sprints.
                   Repeatidly tap 3 and 4 in corresponding order to run.  To
                   jump, simply jump up into the air in real life, and the runner
                   will jump on the screen.
    
    Buttons 5, 6, 9, 10:  These buttons also can be used as a substitute for 
                          Buttons 1 & 2 if you feel like being farther back on
                          the pad.
    
    Buttons 7, 8, 11, 12: These buttons also can be used as a substitute for 
                          Buttons 3 & 4 if you feel like being farther back on
                          the pad.
    
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    2)  Playing The Game
    ===============================================================================
    This can also count as "Game Basics" if you want to call it that.  It's 
    basically a bunch of information that people native to World Class Track Meet 
    already know, but if you are new to the game, you may want to give this 
    section a quick read.
    
    + This is a Power Pad game.  You must own a special controller called the Power
      Pad, made by Nintendo.  The Power Pad is similar to a Dance Dance Revolution
      controller, because you control it with your feet by stepping on it.  There
      are 2 sides to the Power Pad, SideA and SideB, with different buttons on
      each side.  World Class Track Meet is played with the Power Pad set on SideB.
    
    + This game was originally meant to be a title called "Stadium Events", which
      was designed and developed by Bandai.  However, Nintendo, at the last minute,
      ordered that Bandai cease production of Stadium Events, and Nintendo would
      produce the game instead of Bandai.  However, Nintendo changed the name of
      Stadium Events to World Class Track Meet.  The only difference between Stadium
      Events and World Class Track Meet is the title screen.  Oh, by the way, only
      about 5,000 copies of Stadium Events were produced, making it the rarest
      licensed NES game released in the USA.  
    
    + On the title screen, you must choose what mode of play in which you want to
      play.  You can choose from Tournament, 100M Dash, Long Jump, 110M Hurdles, 
      Triple Jump, or The Olympics.  Tournament Mode is the most common mode, and
      considered the main part of the game.
    
    + The Olympics Mode consists of a 100M Dash, a Long Jump, a 110M Hurdles, and
      a Triple Jump, in that order.  A score will be calculated for each event, 
      and your final score will be added up at the end.  You can either play for a
      personal best, or against a friend as a competition.  
    
    + In 100M Dash or 110M Hurdles, if you take any longer than 60 seconds to
      complete the race, the race will automatically end, and you will be counted
      out.  You'd have to purposely try to mess up this bad to get that slow of
      a time, however...
    
    + For emulator users, make sure you have an emulator that supports the Power
      Pad or you will not be able to play this game.  Also, many emulator users
      can't seem to figure out that you must have BOTH BUTTONS pressed down, or
      else the race will never start.  The line judge will start the "Get Set, Go"
      part only after both your feet are pressed on the Power Pad.  But since
      you're not using the Power Pad, be sure to have both buttons pressed down
      on the keyboard and it'll work out fine.
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    3)  Walkthrough
    ===============================================================================
    Yes ladies.  Yes gentlemen.  This is the "meat and bones" of this document.  It
    contains the most information and is probably the part that you will spend the
    most time reading.  Enjoy.
    
    
    3.1) Tournament Mode
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Tournament Mode is made up of 6 different opponents.  You must beat each
    opponent once in a 100M Dash, and once in a 110M Hurdles race.  The 100M Dash
    race will come first, and if you win, then you'll go on to race the same
    opponent in the 110M Hurdles race.  If you win in the 110M Hurdles, you will
    win either a medal or a trophy, and then you'll go on to the next racer.  If
    you lose once, you have to start all over.  There are no continues or second
    chances or anything like that.  Obviously, the 6 opponents you face will get
    more and more difficult as you beat them.  Here is a Walkthrough/FAQ of the
    tournament mode:
    
    1.) Race #: 1st Race
        Opponent: Turtle
        Taunt: "LET'S HAVE A RACE."
        Wears: Pink
        Average 100M Dash: 19.42 sec
        Average 110M Hurdles: 21.72 sec
        Prize: Bronze Medal
        Description: Turtle is the perfect beginner racer.  He is extremely slow,
                     often taking up to 20 seconds to finish the race.  He is very
                     slow, and the sole purpose of him being here is to give you a
                     feel for the racing style before you go on to face the more
                     difficult racers.  Oh, and when it comes to the 110M Hurdles,
                     you can seriously just plow through all the hurdles.  You do
                     not even have to jump over the hurdles, and you'll still
                     beat him with ease.
    
    2.) Race #: 2nd Race
        Opponent: Bear
        Taunt: "IT'S MY TURN NOW."
        Wears: Light Green
        Average 100M Dash: 17.06 sec
        Average 110M Hurdles: 20.32 sec
        Prize: Silver Medal
        Description: Bear is once again a pretty simple race.  He could give some
                     of the lesser physical developed (ie young children or old
                     people) some difficulties, but he should be a breeze for 
                     anybody else who has a pair of legs.  The hurdles is also
                     easy.  Seriously, anybody who takes longer than 20 seconds to
                     finish the hurdles is not fit to play this game.  Like I said
                     before, this should be a breeze.
    
    3.) Race #: 3rd Race
        Opponent: Horse
        Taunt: "I AM REALLY FAST."
        Wears: Turquoise
        Average 100M Dash: 14.52 sec
        Average 110M Hurdles: 18.32 sec
        Prize: Gold Medal
        Description: Finally an opponent that should be giving you somewhat of a
                     challenge.  Even though he's still pretty easy, I can 
                     understand if this guy may be giving you trouble.  With an
                     average Dash time of 14.52 seconds, he should still be pretty
                     easy.  The Hurdles, just jump over all of them, and you should
                     be fine.  You can even trip over a few and still be fine.  We
                     haven't yet gotten to the Bobcat or Cheetah, where there is
                     not any room for error.  Here just take it easy and beat the
                     Horse.
    
    4.) Race #: 4th Race
        Opponent: Rabbit
        Taunt: "CAN YOU BEAT ME?"
        Wears: Yellow 
        Average 100M Dash: 12.66 sec
        Average 110M Hurdles: 16.62 sec
        Prize: Bronze Trophy
        Description: Rabbit should be the first racer that actually gives you some
                     difficulty.  I remember when I was younger I could never beat
                     Rabbit.  With an average time of 12.66 for 110M Dash, he isn't
                     totally unbeatable, but I'm just saying he should give you
                     some trouble at first.  Also his average for 110M Hurdles is
                     16.62 seconds.  In the hurdles, run fast, and just don't hit
                     any hurdles, and you will _probably_ beat him.  Once you start
                     knocking over hurdles, though, is when you're in trouble.
    
    5.) Race #: 5th Race
        Opponent: Bobcat
        Taunt: "CAN YOU KEEP UP WITH ME?"
        Wears: Green
        Average 100M Dash: 11.42 sec
        Average 110M Hurdles: 15.98 sec
        Prize: Silver Trophy
        Description: Well, this is where it starts to get hard.  You will need to
                     move your feet really really fast.  Do not jog in place, 
                     because your feet will go up too high.  Instead, barely lift
                     your feet off the mat.  The less distance your feet move, the
                     more times you'll be able to tap the pad.  Heck, if you want
                     to, you can even get down on your knees and tap the pad with
                     your hands.  Or, put on a fast double-time Rock and Roll song
                     on and tap your hands to the beat of the song to keep a steady
                     pattern.  Eventually you should be able to beat him, but if
                     you haven't played him before, he will probably give you some
                     problems.
    
    6.) Race #: 6th Race
        Opponent: Cheetah
        Taunt: "IF YOU BEAT ME, YOU'RE THE BEST."
        Wears: Red, almost looks pink.
        Average 100M Dash: 10.06 sec
        Average 110M Hurdles: 14.64 sec
        Prize: Gold Trophy
        Description: Wow, the Cheetah is quite a fine runner.  I guess he really
                     wasn't lying about the taunt.  Yes, this is the last opponent
                     you'll face, meaning if you can beat him, consider the game
                     beaten (even though there are other features in the game, this
                     is the main feature).  Anyway, the Cheetah does not seem very
                     fast at the very beginning of the race.  You may even find 
                     yourself neck and neck with him.  However, towards the middle
                     of the race, he will have a minor jolt, and at the very end,
                     an extremely large energy JOLT.  Basically, if you are not
                     ahead of him by at least a second by the end of the race, he
                     will most likely blow past you at the end and win the race.
                     There is absolutely no margin for error.  Any error, no matter
                     how small, cannot be made if you want to find yourself 
                     victorious.  The Cheetah is very fast, and if you can beat 
                     him, you're the best!
    
    After beating Cheetah in the Tournament Mode, a black screen will appear with
    all 6 of your awards, including Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals and Tropies.
    Also, the text "YOU ARE CHAMPION!" will be in the middle of the screen.  The
    Tournament mode is the hardest part of World Class Track Meet, so 
    congratulations on your accomplishment.
    
    
    
    
    
    3.2) 100M Dash
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The 100Meter Dash can be used as 1 of 2 things.  The first it can be used for
    is practice for the Tournament mode.  However, if you have friend(s) in the
    house, you may want to challenge them to a race.  Up to 6 people can play in
    the 100M Dash, but only 2 people will play at a time.  Basically, the only
    thing you're trying to do is get to the end as quickly as possible.  
    
    
    1 Player Mode
    -------------
    If you only choose 1 Player, you will play against a Computer character.  Do
    not worry about the computer, because you're not really racing, you're only
    trying to get better at the game, and to improve your scores.  After you're
    done the 100M race, win or lose (told you it didn't matter), you will be
    brough back to the main title screen where you choose what aspect of the game
    you'd like to tackle next.
    
    2-6 Player Mode
    ---------------
    When playing with other people, it is most fun.  You can play with up to 5
    other friends, 6 people in all.  However, only 2 people can race at a time.
    After the first 2 racers get done, the next 2 will race, and so on until all
    6 racers have raced.  After all the racers are done, you will be taken to a
    screen where the times are tallied up and the "winner" is determined.  After
    that screen, you're taken back to the main title screen, where you choose what
    aspect of the game you'd like to play next.
    
    
    
    
    3.3) Long Jump
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Long Jump is a World Class Track Meet event where, obviously, you have to
    jump as far as possible.  While on the Power Pad, you must run very fast, and
    then leap into the air.  The Power Pad will determine how long you are in the
    air, and you will jump that far.  So, basically, the longer you are in the
    air, the farther distance you will go.  A good way to trick the game is to
    jump, and land OFF the Power Pad, and then right when you're about to reach the
    maximum jump limit (the end of the sand box), jump back on the Power Pad and
    you will land.  I have done this countless times, and it works quite well.
    However, if you're playing against a friend, they would have to be pretty
    stupid not to notice, so it's all fair game if playing with a friend.
    
    There are some very easy ways that you can get a FOUL, which is not a fun thing
    to get.  It would be most wise to read this paragraph to figure out what NOT to
    do.  First of all, be absolutely sure you jump up in the air before that line.
    NO, THE SANDBOX IS NOT THE JUMP POINT, the line is the jump point, so be sure
    you jump before the line, or you will FOUL.  Also, another easy way to get a
    FOUL, is to keep running; when you get to the sand, you will trip, and get a
    FOUL.  Another good way to get a FOUL is by not ever landing if you're using the
    Step-Off-The-Pad cheat.  No, you cannot jump forever, and eventually you must
    land.  If you're in the air for too long (a humanly impossible time), you will
    get a FOUL.
    
    The best 2 of 3 scores are the ones that count, so you can get 1 FOUL and still
    score very good.  However, if you get 3 viable scores, the lowest score is 
    dropped, so don't purposely mess up the 3rd jump if you have 2 good scores 
    already.
    
    
    
    
    3.4) 110M Hurdles
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    These are the 110M Hurdles.  It's 10 Meters longer than the 100M Dash, and has
    9 sets of Hurdles set up at even intervals.  The object is to get to the end 
    goal line as quickly as possible, which means that you'll have to jump over the
    hurdles to get a faster time.  Of course, you can just plow straight through the
    hurdles if you wish, but every time you hit a hurdle, you will slow down, and
    this is highly not recommended if you want a fast time.  
    
    To jump over the hurdles, simply jump in real life on the Power Pad.  You will
    actually jump in the game over the hurdles, then continue to run, and jump over
    the next hurdle, etc., until you finish the race.  
    
    
    1 Player Mode
    -------------
    If you only choose 1 Player, you will play against a Computer character.  Do
    not worry about the computer, because you're not really racing, you're only
    trying to get better at the game, and to improve your scores.  After you're
    done the 110M Hurdles, win or lose (told you it didn't matter), you will be
    brough back to the main title screen where you choose what aspect of the game
    you'd like to tackle next.
    
    2-6 Player Mode
    ---------------
    When playing with other people, it is most fun.  You can play with up to 5
    other friends, 6 people in all.  However, only 2 people can race at a time.
    After the first 2 racers get done, the next 2 will race, and so on until all
    6 racers have raced.  After all the racers are done, you will be taken to a
    screen where the times are tallied up and the "winner" is determined.  After
    that screen, you're taken back to the main title screen, where you choose what
    aspect of the game you'd like to play next.
    
    
    
    3.5) Triple Jump
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Triple Jump is EXACTLY like the Long Jump, except you must jump twice before
    the actual jump across the sand.  Basically, start running, and when you get to
    the line (which is WAY before the sand this time), jump once, then land, then
    jump again, and try to land the 2nd time right before the sand pit.  On the
    3rd jump, jump as far as possible across the sand.  The farther you jump, the
    higher of a score you will get.  Basically, the more time you're in the air in
    real life, the farther you will jump in the game.  A good method to get a 
    higher score is to trick the game by jumping, and landing OFF the Power Pad,
    and then quickly jumping back on the Power Pad when you're ready to land.  This
    is the best way to max out your score by getting the farthest jump.
    
    You will do the Triple Jump 3 times.  The best 2 of 3 scores are the ones that
    count, so you can get 1 FOUL and still score very good.  However, if you get 3
    viable scores, the lowest score is dropped, so don't purposely mess up the 3rd
    jump if you have 2 good scores already.
    
    There are some very easy ways that you can get a FOUL, which is not a fun thing
    to get.  It would be most wise to read this paragraph to figure out what NOT to
    do.  First of all, be absolutely sure you jump up in the air before that line.
    Do not run past that line on the ground without jumping, or you will FOUL.  The
    line is the jump point, so be sure you jump before the line, or you will FOUL.
    Also, another easy way to get a FOUL, is to keep running; when you get to the 
    sand, you will trip, and get a FOUL.  Another good way to get a FOUL is by not
    ever landing if you're using the Step-Off-The-Pad cheat.  No, you cannot jump 
    and stay in the air forever, and eventually you must land.  If you're in the air
    for too long (a humanly impossible time), you will get a FOUL.
    
    
    
    
    3.6) The Olympics
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Olympics Mode consists of a 100M Dash, a Long Jump, a 110M Hurdles, and
    a Triple Jump, in that order.  A score will be calculated for each event, and
    your final score will be added up at the end.  You can either play for a
    personal best, or against a friend as a competition.  You can play with up
    to 5 friends, meaning that 6 total people can play at a time.  Up to 6 people
    can play in The Olympics, but only 2 people will play at a time, the other 4
    will sit out and wait their turn.  After all 4 events are completed, your
    scores will be tallied, and The Olympics will be over.
    
    
    1 Player Mode
    -------------
    If you only choose 1 Player, you will play against a Computer character for the
    100M Dash and the 110M Hurdles, but for the Long Jump and Triple Jump, you will
    be jumping by yourself.  Do not worry about the computer, because you're not 
    really racing, you ARE trying to get a fast time, but you're not necessarily
    racing the computer.  After you're done the 100M race, continue with the Long
    Jump.  A score of 9 Meters in the Long Jump is very good.  After the Long Jump
    will be the 110M Hurdles.  Once again, do not worry about the computer character
    that is racing along side of you.  After the 110 Hurdles, it's time for the last
    and final event, which is the Triple Jump.  After the Triple Jump, your final
    score will be tallied, and The Olympics will be over.
    
    2-6 Player Mode
    ---------------
    When playing with other people, it is most fun.  You can play with up to 5
    other friends, 6 people in all.  However, only 2 people can race at a time.
    After the first 2 racers get done, the next 2 will race, and so on until all
    6 racers have raced.  2 Players will race at a time in the 100M Dash.  In the
    Long Jump, only 1 player will play at a time.  In the 110M Hurdles, 2 players
    can play at a time, and then when you get to the Long Jump, only 1 player can
    play at a time.  After all 4 events are done, you will be taken to a screen
    where the scores for all players will be tallied up, and the winner will be
    calculated.  Congrats for the winner!  After that, The Olympics will be over.

         stealing all the profits.
    
      2. Thanks to CJayC, CNet, and all the smaller administrators at GameFAQs for
         their hard work creating and maintaining a great video game cheat site.
    
      3. THANKS TO YOU.  Although I write for fun, all my work would be useless
         without readers such as yourself.  Thank you.
