For the diving events I found the hardest part was the ending with needing to go left or right. I played the events choosing the hardest dive each time and wrote down if it was left or right for the ending then replayed the event. When I knew what the ending for each dive was I won easily.

The 400m was tricky for me. I just reached the end by sprinting and I was out of stamina at the very end but just about won.

I'm struggling with men's single sculls and keirin. Any tips for those?

choosing left and right doesn`t work fella. it changes all the time depending on how well you perform the tricks. if you do the tricks bang on you don't have to press left or right as they land perfect

its all about timing mate. i was pressing the buttons as soon as they came up. if you hit them all at the right time you shouldn`t have to press left or right to straighten up

I was struggling with this one aswell.. i think its good to press the buttons as soon as they come up its just the analogue at the end is abit harder... if you do it too soon then you have to move left or right and if you do it to late your character will just belly flop down.... i tend to however flick it when my characters head is directly above the stick... seems to help me abit

It does work. If you always pull down early it will be left or right every time. Mind you there are a couple of dives where you seem to pull down just as you enter the water, so it's a non starter for those.

think you need to look at what you wrote mate. your trying to correct what i said but it doesnt make sense. i said if you time them right you shouldnt need to press left of right. yet you just said if you pull down too early then you have to press left of right.

Point being if you pull down EARLY EVERY TIME it wont change will it?.
