To start off, you should go in the training section first and practice your long jump skills for a litttle while. Even the best athelets in the world need some practice before their great olympic competitions, so go ahead and play for fun before you play for succes.
Choose your player from the four types of characters and get them to the starting line to begin the competition. As you select your icon-man, think about which one will suit better the olympic jump games, since jumping would be easier if you have long legs for instance. So start the jumping sessions and make perfect use of your arrow keys, to run as fast as you can and long jump as good as possible. The not so friendly panda will be there to knock some sense in to you if you make mistakes and to add to the fun athmospere of these olympic trials.
