Video Olympics is a video game cartridge programmed by Joe Decuir for Atari Inc. for the Atari 2600. It is one of the nine original launch titles for that system when it was released in September 1977. The game is a port of Atari's popular Pong series. It was also released by Sears for their Atari 2600 clone (the Sears Video Arcade) under the title Pong Sports.
The games are a collection of "bat and ball" style games, including several previously released by Atari as coin-ops in the early 1970s. The games are played using the 2600s paddle controllers, and are for one to four players (three or four players requires a second set of paddle controllers).
Video Olympics includes the following games:
- Super Pong
- Pong Doubles
- Foozpong (based on Foozball)
- Ice hockey
