A few points:

1. For a long time, the Summer Olympics tended to be more popular than the Winter Olympics. This may have changed due to Salt Lake City in 2002, but I think it was still true back during the Winter Olympics in Nagano, 1998.

2. There were fewer anime made back in the 90s than there are now. Substantially fewer.

3. Battle Athletes and Battle Athletes Victory aired back in 1997 and 1998. Now, the setting for it is the distant future, so it doesn't reference the 1998 Olympics. But I wouldn't be surprised if this anime was inspired by the excitement surrounding the upcoming 1998 Winter Olympics.

Oh sorry if I wasn't clear, I was honestly just curious. I fully agree with point 1) and 2)

3) makes me lol because I swear back in the 90s anime just had to bring a sci fi twist to right about everything

It's cool.

You raised a very good question and point, actually. One I hadn't thought of. I'm admittedly now having second thoughts about there being some anime tying into the 2020 Olympics. I'd like for there to be, because I think it would be a shame for the anime world to not tap into this at least a little bit.

Good point about 90s anime. If it wasn't sci-fi, it was fantasy, and often both, lol.

I have been racking my brain to recall the anime I had seen with Olympics posters. It was Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora, aka "Someday's Dreamers II." This was back in 2008, and the posters were advertising Tokyo's bid for the 2016 Olympics.

I also did a search at AniDB using "olympics" as the keyword. There is Eikou e no Spur: Igaya Chiharu Monogatari, released in 1997 and described as "A biography of Chiharu Igaya, who won a silver medal in men's slalom in Cortina d'Ampezzo Olympics in 1956, and became the first Japanese Winter Olympics medalist." A couple of other well-known shows appear on the list as well. Both Urasawa's Yawara: A Fashionable Judo Girl and Ginban Kaleidoscope have heroines who want to perform at the Olympics.

Here's the full list of 44 items if you're interested: http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl...fsearch=Search

(or perhaps even a future sequel of Free itself) except it will incorporate the Olympics directly into its plot.
With all due respect, even that's probably pretty difficult, what with the IOC and copyright, where they don't want anyone but sponsors to even *mention* the Olympics name...

With all due respect, I think you're overstating your argument a fair bit.

Free! has already had explicit references to the Olympics in its anime. Apparently no copyright stopped KyoAni here.

Some things I know are off-limits like the five rings.

Here's the Olympic licensing brochure for London 2012. The "Olympic Movement," as it is referred to on the first page of the "Overview" section, owns a hell of a lot of stuff that makes a hell of a lot of money.
