Speed Skating 500m (Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games)
Speed Skating 500m is a Speed Skating Event that appears in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to finish in the fastest time, with the event taking place in the Adler Arena. Toads, Charmy and Chao appear as referees in this event.
In this event, the player directly competes against one opponent, but their overall ranking in the event is decided by their times compared to all of the opponents. To start the event, the player must first hold the Wii Remote in a speed skater's stance, and must swing it down when "Go!" appears onscreen to start the event. If they swing the remote down with perfect timing, the player will gain a starting boost, though swinging down too early will delay the player's start. Once the player has started, they must quickly swing the Wii Remote left and right o build up speed, with more speed being built up the faster that they swing. After the starting stretch has been completed, the player then continues by swinging their Wii Remote left and right on time with the onscreen markings, with better timed swings giving them a larger boost of speed. If the player swings with perfect timing, they can begin a perfect combo, which allows them to perform a special boost after performing three perfect swings in a row. After performing the first special boost, the player must then perform four perfects in a row to receive the next one, and further special boost perfect combo requirements increase by one each time. As the player enters the final stretch, the onscreen markers will be removed and the player must keep up the timing of the Wii Remote swings to complete the race. The character with the fastest tie wins the event.
