The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Since 'Alex Summers' is a sport of the gold-leaved 'Gold
Regal', and 'Summer Olympics' is a gold-leaved sport of 'Alex
Summers', one might expect 'Summer Olympics' to be the same as
'Gold Regal'- not so. The foliage of 'Summer Olympics' has much
better substance and is a brighter gold than 'Gold Regal'."
