  Yep its Track and Field, and yeah man no other game killed my fingers more.  The Summer and Winter Olympics games from Epyx could be rough as well.

For some reason I LOL'd heartily at that Track and Field screenshot.

For me its the referee.  The guy looks like a midget in comparison to the runners, he is dressed like a golfer from the 20s, and for some reason was made in CGA-style graphics.

He looks like a really random out of place inverted Santa Claus to me. Also I like how much the runners are stretched across the track, like if they're crawling in a very weird half-lying pose, dragging half their butt on the ground. It took me until now to realize this is supposed to be them kneeling at the start of the race. If I still got that wrong, laugh all you want.

Flash games are harder to find out, obviously.
Yet, it was elected one of the best freeware adventure games of 2007 (don't google that :P) before "A Tale of Two Kingdoms", "Ben Jordan Case 6" and "Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy".
