What's the difference between the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics? The events! The Winter Olympics mostly include sports enjoyed in snow and ice or winter sports such as hockey, speed skating, snowboarding and many more. The Summer Olympic has a similar format to the Winter Olympics, but it is hosted in the summer time with mostly outdoor and indoor sports such as track & field, swimming, basketball and many more. The Summer Olympics is generally more popular and welcomed because of the "commonness" or popularity of the sports in it.
There are 29 sports in the Summer Olympics (although only 26 sports will be at the 2012 Olympics). There are 15 sports in the Winter Olympics (all 15 were held at the 2010 Olympics).
