2nd Event - Long Jump: Finish three completely identical jumps. The leprechaun will again give you 1000 points.
3rd Event - Javelin Throw: Speed up and right before you reach the foul line, hold the throw button but do not release it. The javelin miraculously goes incredibly high, leaving the screen. It eventually hits an alien who gives you 1000 points.
