->''"So, I'll give you a serious-ish answer now, actually: We don't really have one.\\
Lemme explain - this is just one ancillary detail-related query in a long line of such things where quite often, there is pretty much nothing to gain by answering it. In fact, sometimes it's only an unnecessary risk. I'll use your question as an example; There's no real presence accounted for of the Olympics in the Halo fiction (no real need to so far, really lol). So I could give you an answer about the Games' place in the universe and its evolution into the sporting future, but we'd just be making one up strictly for the goal of "answering the question."\\
But let's say one day for some reason, we find a proper story reason to involve the Olympics (I have no idea why, just go with me), but it doesn't mesh well with the arbitrary answer we gave on some forum or blog - now we either retcon it (which goes over oh so well usually), or we shoehorn it in potentially to the detriment of the original idea. There's just very little reward to the risk.\\
Now, I'll be honest, that's not to say that there haven't been times where we do due diligence to answer community-requested questions or provide info, we just have to be far more choosy than folks would likely imagine - and for a myriad of reasons.\\
