    Please note my amendments to your post.

    We usually refer to 'the 2016 Olympics'.

    Re: enquiry about the correct spell.

    At last year's Olympic Games, we heard both "the 2012 Olympics and "London 2012".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
