* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': Though no episode has yet followed characters to the actual Olympic Games, training for the Olympics gets an occasional mention in the series, and an Olympic tryout forms one subplot:
** "Still Waters" focuses on a rowing team at a country club and rivalry for a place in the men's eights team: a wealthy club member demands the talented gardener give up his seat in the boat, but the coach and the other team members know they need the gardener (who holds every rowing record at the club) to have a shot at qualifying for the Olympics. Guess who dies?
** "Twisted Sisters" starts with a couple of cross-country runners finding the body of a dead woman just after a training run. Dr. Grace learns from one of the runners that a club is sending a croquet player to the 1900 Olympics, leading to a subplot in which she contests the spot ([[HiddenDepths she was city-wide croquet champion two years running]]).
** After the curling match between his team and some members of Station 4, Leslie Garland praises Murdoch's innovative sliding shoe and asks if his club can use them in the upcoming nordic games. Murdoch is pleased to consent. Garland goes on to express the hope that those games will grow and become a "winter Olympics".
