The Olympic Games were a quadrennial interplanetary athletics competition founded by the Human civilization. The games originated in ancient Greece on the planet Earth, and were revived in the 19th century as an international competition, eventually expanding to include other worlds throughout the Federation.
In 1986, Anastasia Komananov thought to herself that the Russian Olympic coaches and trainers would like to know what diet and regimen Khan Noonien Singh was on that gave him the abilities he displayed to her. Colonel Komananov was unaware of Khan's genetically engineered nature. (ST novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)
In the 2280s decade, Federation starship USS Enterprise held a shipboard Olympics for crewmembers, with Captain Kirk's senior staff serving as the qualifying committee. In the year 2286, Commander Chekov disqualified William Bearclaw from the Olympics for unsportsmanlike behavior during a wrestling match, when he offered a defeated Konom a hand up, and then kicked him down to the mat. Before the captain intervened, Chekov and Bearclaw almost came to blows over the issue. (TOS comic: "What Goes Around...")
