Mathletics

Mathletics is a maths based take on the olympics, where "matheletes" take part in track and field events after answering questions to make their target easier or harder.
Depending on the event, the bonuses available are Division, Subtraction, Addition, or Multiplication (in that, or occasionally reverse, order).
The mathelete can choose whether to answer questions twice per event. Then if he has a bonus, he rolls a die. The result of the die roll determines what the bonus will be. If a 100m runner gets the maximum bonus of / 6, he will only have to run 16.6 meters to finish. However, with the worst bonus, he will have to sprint 600m.
