The foot race is done by alternately tapping the and buttons to run down the track. Do not start running until the announcer says, "Go" or you'll be charged with a false start. As you're running down the track, you may be prompted to press or to hit your opponent and slow him down. If you don't press these when prompted, your opponent may hit and slow down you. When you get near the finish additional prompts will show up in order for you to dive across the finish line. These are not necessary unless it is a close race.
This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.
