The Olympics are a recurring international gathering where players compete in minigames for medals. The event is loosely modeled after the real-life Olympic Games.

The First Olympics were held in Yoahtl across five evenings from Friday, June 22nd 2018 to Tuesday, June 26th 2018 with many total participants from many nations. The Second Olympics were held in The Commonwealth, from Monday, 7th January 2019 through to Sunday 13th[1], with after parties at nearby locations following the events. The Third Olympics were held in Gensokyo from Friday, 10th May 2019 through to Sunday 12th.[2] The Fourth Olympics were held in Mount Augusta from 14th August 2019 to 18th August.[3][4] Each had multiple nations compete and saw a multitude of athletic and non-athletic events held.

The Fifth Olympics were due to be held in Columbia from 18th January 2020 to 20th January but subsequently cancelled due to the Columbian Bush War.[5]

The Olympics is run by an international organization that selects each location for every Olympic Games.[6] As of Feburary 2021, no new Olympic games have been planned. While possible locations include Columbia, Icenia, Mount September, Eddie Murphy, Gabon, and Yoahtl, no new games have been announced as of yet.[citation needed]
