Overview:

From the back of the box:Join eight international Olympic athletes as they compete in 10 decathlon disciplines. You never thought running, jumping and throwing could be such fun - in a brilliantly quirky AM3 conversion that brings steel-hard competition to the home.

Unfortunately these 10 games are all about button bashing; pressing a button as quickly as possible. Not very athletic.
This is a port from the arcade game with the same name on the Sega St-V. The Sega ST-V is nothing more than a saturn in coin-op shape. I haven't noticed any difference between the two. The saturn version even has the in-game explenation with arcade controls, instead of the saturn pad.
This game supports saving directly to the cartridge memory.
