Right in the heptathlon i can never seem to get a decent score in the shot put. For some reason the power bar increases really slow no matter how fast i twiddle the stick. I even tried it in training to make sure it wasnt just me and it worked fine. Any Advice ?

yeah I noticed that too, it goes a slower in heptathlon. There really isn't a trick, what score did you get? I got a little over 900 and i still ended up with over 7200 total points. There really is no trick to it, you just have to really spin that stick as hard as you can.

If your hand really starts hurting after awhile you can hear a thin glove, it also gives you a little more grip. Sometimes when my hand sweats It slips off the stick and that could cost you.

Same advice as above really apart from i use a gym glove nice thick palm etc much easier..

Iv got the points and win the 7 events achievements and found the player controlled athletes were'nt at the top of there game compared to the multi-player ones..

Im having the exact same problem. Trying to get the all 7 event wins and on this one it goes so slowly and my best throw on it was 15.26 but still got beaten by cpu which threw 15.78! Irritating!

You don't have to win all 7 in one attempt

if thats so, then how come my achievement didnt unlock? i won 5 events last night, now i did the other 2 today, and no achievement.

i did it with 4 controllers connected but surely this makes no difference?

i did it in compotition mode.

any advice?

Something is definitely wrong with this ach. I have won all 7 events multiple times, both online and off multiple controllers and 1 controller. I have even won all 7 in a row.

Where is my ach?

on my 5th try, of doing it all various ways - online/offline/ multiple controllers/ single controller etc etc. It unlocked today whilst doing it in compitition mode with 3 controllers. I won all 7 events in a row, and it unlocked at the end. Im not sure why it didnt do it last time i won all 7 but now i am finally glad that it has worked.

I can only say keep at it, it will unlock eventually!
