Best Answer

The Olympics are held every four years. However the Summer and Winter Olympics are not held in the same year. There is a two year gap between the Summer and Winter Olympics. There are Summer Olympic games in 2012 and 2016 and 2020 and every four years after that. There are Winter Olympics games in 2014, 2018, 2022 and every four years after that.
