Best Answer

The summer Olympics and the winter Olympics are held every four years. They use to be held in the same year, but, a few years ago, they were changed, so the winter Olympics and the summer Olympics are separated by two years. There are summer Olympics in 2012, then in 2016, and 2020. The next winter Olympics are in 2014, 2018, then 2022.
