There will be no olympics in 2017. The 2016 summer olympics will be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (South America)The winter olympics in 2018 will be in South Korea (Asia)
The only competing continent that has not hosted a Summer Olympics Games is Africa. There have been Olympics held in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and Australia. There was also no African city that had hosted the FIFA World Cup until 2010, so a future African venue for the Olympics is not impossible. The only continent not represented in the Olympics is Antarctica, which has only scientists as permanent residents, and is by treaty an international scientific preserve.
The World Cup has been hosted on every continent except Oceania. It has been hosted in North America three times, South America five times, Europe ten times, Asia once and Africa once.
