Decathlete (デカスリート), known as Athlete Kings in Europe, is a Sega Titan Video game developed and published by Sega. However, it saw most of its success as a Sega Saturn title, released later in the same year.

As the non-European name suggests, the game features all the events of the decathlon, including the 100-metre dash, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400-metre race, 110-metre hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and the 1500-metre race, and not only was one of the first games to feature all of these sporting events, was the first to present them in 3D.
