The Olympics was the 98th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 11th episode of Season Five, it first aired December 5, 1975.
Jealous of Donna's athletic new boyfriend, Fred begins training so he can challenge him in the Senior Olympics.
Can it be? Fred Sanford, a man constitutionally unwilling to perform any form of physical exertion, is about to compete in the Senior Olympics? Yes, it's true -- and it is all because Fred doesn't want to lose his erstwhile fiancée Donna Harris (Lynn Hamilton) to venerable but virile athlete Lou Turner (Percy Rodrigues).
