Before this gets too popular you really need to change the name and remove anything related to the olympics. The US Olympic committee will send you a cease and desist letter and follow with a lawsuit if you don't change it. The olympics are a big business and they protect their copyright fiercely.

A few examples:

Robogames was formerly Robolympics: http://boingboing.net/2003/11/24/olympics-serves-robo.html




> their copyright

Nitpick: This is trademark at issue here, not copyright. Though the USOC and the IOC protect basically everything they can fiercely.
