Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Olympic Events Edition

Back in the 70s, the Olympic games took place every four years, with both Winter and Summer games occurring the same year.  This made for a much longer buildup to the games, as well as more time for spinoff/ripoff/homage-type material such as Hanna Barbera’s Laff-A-Lympics (which, given my aversion to sports, was actually more my speed.)  The most interesting part of the team breakdowns for the L-A-L came when you realized that Scooby-Doo’s team consisted of four super-heroes, an all-powerful genie and a living car, which left them seemingly over-powered against the teams of talking animals and ineffectual villains.  With the 2014 Winter Olympics ceremonies fast approaching, this line of thought does beg an unusual query…
