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:

Knitting olympics crackdown: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-06-22/why-the-u-do...

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.


If you think that's bad, you should have seen the London 2012 branding police. Was the most fierce and ridiculous yet.
