 I didn't know this would post here, thought it would just send to somebody... 

This isn't complete, didn't want to do the whole thing if the format is sloppy.

Is it concise enough? I tried. 

Didn't want to step on the toes of the Summer Olympic Host Cities topic - So I left the Rio part out ;).

Glad to finish it if you think it looks OK. :)

BB, that's a golden contribution. Does this mean you're going to add all summer/winter Olympics ever? 

Are all the facts on World/Olympic records up to date? I did have a look at a couple of WRs which were up to date, then realised my method was very slow and early morningish, then thought BB's the person to do that.

Ruby, do I need to clarify on mine (I was wondering).  I have put OR! or WR!! to mean it was an OR! or WR!! at the time.  They are not meant to be current, just that the gold medal winner set that record at the time. I think it makes sense from a sports-guy perspective (I could be wrong!).

Other thing I questioned - some of the gold medals I didn't clarify the sport, thought it was well known enough to not do so.  But it's not homogenous. I didn't want them all to be long answers, I wanted some to be quick clicks. 

I think most of the World record categories on factacular are pretty up to date.   I do have a look through now and then (I love those categories).  Can give a systematic check of any time/record categories.  That would actually be fun for me I think.

Man we facters are strange.

*I know not think it will be fun to check the record categories.

I would like to go backwards in time with these! So next would be 2014 Sochi Winter.  The winter ones will be much easier! And I love both. 

If you, JMK, or anyone else has read through them and has suggestions on the question format or anything let me know!  I wasn't sure it made any sense the way I did it but I do think it fits in well with our other sports categories.

I have made a sub-category for Summer Olympics' Medals in anticipation of further additions :) I can also make one for Winter Olympics. The format I used which seems to work is:

2016 Summer Olympics
Who won the gold medal for X?
Y won the gold medal for which event at the 2016 Summer Olympics?

They do have beach tennis now.  Martial arts volleyball would be pretty cool. I can imagine all the spinning kick kills now :)
