Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
100m is a track Athletics Event that appears in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. The aim of the event is to reach the finish line of the 100m track in the fastest time, with the event taking place in the National Stadium. Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Dr. Eggman can be seen competing in this event in the opening, with Cream as a referee. Toad, Shy Guy and Espio also appear as referees for this event in the game. The starting world record for the event is 9.77 seconds, and the starting Olympic record is 9.84 seconds.
This event starts by introducing each of the characters being played as and their lane number before showing them all ready to run from the blocks. When the word "Ready" appears on screen, the player must hold down to charge up energy, shown by a meter in the corner. When "Go" appears on screen, the player must release and swing down the Wii remote to start the race. Doing so with perfect timing will grant the player a starting boost, while doing so too early will result in a foul and the event being restarted. Once the player's character starts running, they must shake either the Nunchuk and Wii remote up and down if they are using both, or just the Wii remote if they are using the single control scheme to run and buld up speed. Doing so faster will case the character to run faster.
