Concord was a supersonic aircraft - of of two commercial supersonic aircraft - developed by Britain and France.

Olympics is a series of competitive events where athletes run, jump, lift weights, ride bikes and horses and hit balls into the air on a sandy pitch.

I do not think the two are connected.

Yes.
Gossip says that the Soviets stole prints of the concord But that the plans had errors which caused it to crash.
