Dream Discus is a Dream Event that appears exclusively in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. It is set in Windy Valley from Sonic Adventure. The starting Olympic record is held by Metal Sonic at 152 points.

During London Party mode, when the player faces off against Jet the Hawk, they compete in this event.

Gameplay[edit]

After the characters are introduced, the four characters throw their discuses and jump on them and the event begins. Players travel in a predetermined path. By collecting rings, collecting Item Boxes, and defeating Spinners along the path, the players earn points. Along the path are rocks and pillars which knock the character off screen for a bit if they collide with it, while Spinners just stun them. Once players reach the end of the path, they are sucked into a tornado in a short cutscene that can be skipped. Once through the tornado, players fall down to the end circular platform, where they can earn anywhere from 0 to 50 points with being closer to the center meaning more points. The placements of the players are then determined.
