In honor of the Olympic games this year. Watching them has reminded me of some 80's movies and thought it might be fun to see how many we could think of that involve an Olympic sport but not necessarily involving the Olympics(although that would be more than acceptable). I will start.

Oxford Blues-Rowing

Back To School-Diving

American Anthem- Gymnastics
