* An early ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' strip takes place during the first Lunar Olympics. Athletes are allowed to compete with bionic implants, provided that no less than 80% of their bodies is made of human tissue. Because of the moon's lower gravity, Earth records in events like the pole vault and the shot put are broken like crazy. There are also a few "Moon Sports" introduced, notably one best described as "snowboarding tricks [[XMeetsY meets]] the ski jump"; overshooting ones run and missing the safety net leads to some very bloody, deadly results.

* The Creator/HarryTurtledove short story "Les Mortes d'Arthur" features the sixty-sixth Winter Olympics of the twenty-third century, held on Mimas and featuring several futuristic versions of recognised sports. Also an excellent example of TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: written in the late 1980s, it has a fragmented USSR with a Tsarist Siberia and a Communist Moscow, said [[HilariousInHindsight to be the only communist nation left in the world after even China has abandoned it]].
