With the 2000 Olympics taking place down in Sydney at the moment, athletics games are undergoing something of a revival, with Sydney 2000 (PC / PSX / DC), Sergei Bubka (PC) and Virtua Athlete 2000 (DC) all putting in appearances in the last few weeks. Not to be left out, French publisher Kalisto have a launched a whole decathlon of athletics web games on their site. Events such as the 100m sprint, long jump, high jump, pole vault and javelin are included. Unfortunately all of the instructions only seem to be in French, and the control method is something of a nightmare - my best time in the 100m so far is .. um .. 32 seconds actually. Still, if you want to give it a go head over to the web games section of Kalisto's website. It doesn't cost anything, and the worst that can happen is that you will destroy your mouse buttons and give yourself a nasty Repetitive Strain Injury...
Alanah Pearce, James Stephanie Sterling and Caddicarus have so far been victims.
