Film Quizzes: Winter Olympics/Summer Olympics

The Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics finishes today, after 16 drama-fuelled days. As with any major sporting event, there have been all stories. Records have been obliterated, heroes have appeared, legends created and dreams fulfilled. But there’s also been all kinds of disappointment on display too as years of hard work fall away in an instant. Inspired by a blog post on Vinnie H, below are 12 films on the Summer and Winter Olympics. Some are based on a true story, others entirely fictional. Can you work them out?

  1. Chariots of Fire, Cool Runnings, Prefontaine, Miracle, Unbroken and I, Tonya are all true stories … the others I’m not sure about. Well except Blades of Glory!!! NOT a true story! Lol!!!

      • Irv: It’s a fair question. It’s quite simple, really. I had to win. You see, Derice, I had made winning my whole life, and when you make winning your whole life, you have to keep winning, no matter what. Understand?
        Derice Bannock: No, I don’t understand. You won two gold medals, you had it all.
        Irv: Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing. But if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.

  2. I only recognizes 3 from the pictures. I know I Tonya is based om a true dtory. Do I still get a participation award? I hear they’re easy to come by. I’d like mine in chocolate please. 🤓

    Great quiz Alex.

  3. 5/12. Sports movies are not my strength I guess. A few here I had not heard of though I did guess Chariots of Fire, Cool Runnings, Blades of Glory, Foxcatcher and I, Tonya
