Welcome to one of the less well-known summer games events: the Suicide Javelin. In this event you can increase your overall distance by getting hit by your own javelin!

Use 'J' for all the gameplay controls:
-1. Set the angle by pressing 'J' (and keep holding it to run).
-2. Throw the javelin by releasing 'J'
-3. Accelerate the rocket by pressing 'J'. Release 'J' to break.

- 'ESC' to get back to menu (eg. for restarting game).
- 'R' for quick restart during game.
- 'M' to toggle mute.
- 'H' to show hiscores in title or demo screen.

Neonspiders guide is good, but I recommend you try to start an attempt for the last medal w/ a 300+ throw. It's a bit more precise(just above the white of his head, don't stop rocketing), but gives a buffer for failed attempts. One great run, and a couple okay ones will suffice.
