The 2980 Olympics were an interplanetary multi-sport event which was held in 2980. Only 2 competitors and 1 event are known. It was only seen in a flashback when Hermes told the story of why he left Limbo.
- Winner: Barbados Slim
- This event is the last athletic event in which Hermes competed as a Limboist until the 3004 Olympics, because of the death of a poor boy who idolized Hermes, and was fatally injured while attempting to limbo as low as a trained olympian. As a result, Hermes didn't have the heart to limbo for almost 2 decades.
- In the 3004 Olympics, Hermes competed for Jamaica, however in the 2980 Olympics, he competed for Earth. Based on this, it is possible that two olympic games are held: one interplanetary, the other limited to Earth.
