Daley Thompsons Decathlon by Ocean Software

You take on the role of Daley Thompson and have the chance to race, run, jump and throw in the Olympics. There are many different parts to this game (running end to end) and you are given 3 chances to qualify the event you are on and 2 lives to continue with if you mess these up. There is something for everone in this game and it was always one of my favourites when it arrived on the home computer.
