In honour of the 2016 Summer Olympics running from August 5th-21st and due to popular demand we're starting a new topic challenge, the 33rd since the modern reinvention of topic challenges. From 2016-08-06 00:00 UTC to 2016-08-21 23:00 UTC we're challenging you to all your great questions about sports movies be they Olympics-based or not.

Once the challenge is over, we'll tally the results and winners (by question votes) here. Also don't forget to suggest and vote for new topics for our next possible challenge.

And don't forget that the most important thing is not to win but to take part!
