Daley Thompson - an icon, hero and most of all an Olympic Athlete. Brought to life on the wonderful ZX Spectrum! 

Bash those buttons of the keyboard and make Daley work hard!

The original Track and Field arcade cabinet steeped in gaming history came first…but Daley in the world of home computers was hot on their heels.

Ocean Software were makers of micro dreams back in the 80s and this was one to cherish. Many a childhood we spent thinking about playing this whilst we were at school back in the 80s. And when we got home, had our tea and watched a bit of telly it was keyboard bashing Daley into the no 1 spot which we cared about!

The soundtrack was awesome too! Not too bad on the speccy and composed by the great Martin Galway with it's origins based on the mighty Vangelis Chariots of Fire. Such a success was Daley's game - it was the biggest selling speccy game of 84 and Crash voted it game of the year in the same year. Just to top it all, Daley Thompson's Decathalon made the Golden Joystick Awards by being the best arcade style game of the year back in 1984.

The arcade influence came from was Track and Field...but this was all about Daley..and we loved it!
