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?
