Was winter Olympics ever held at two year interval?

Yes, in 1992 and 1994. Up to 1992, the Winter Olympics and Summer Olympics were held in the same year. The International Olympic Committee decided to split the Winter and Summer Games by two years in the hopes of getting more attention for the Games since they would be held two years apart instead of in the same year. To do this, they scheduled the Winter Olympics for 1994, two years after the 1992 Winter Olympics and kept the Summer Olympics scheduled for 1996, four years after the 1992 Summer Olympics. 1992 and 1994 is the only time the Winter Olympics were held two years apart.

What is the hottest Olympic sport?

It depends on your opinion. Apparently, the top 3 for both type of the Olympics are as they are below: Winter Olympics #1: Women`s Figure Skating #2: Half Pipe #3: Pair Figure Skating Summer Olympics #1: Men`s Swimming #2: Men`s Running #3: Women`s Swimming I see a pattern in that. Anyway I`ve researched and now can show a few more details. Percentage of Women watching Winter Olympics: 82% Percentage of Women watching Summer Olympics: 84% Percentage of Men watching Winter Olympics: 73% Percentage of Men watching Summer Olympics: 64% Percentage of Girls watching Winter Olympics: 45% Percentage of Girls watching Summer Olympics: 11% Percentage of Boys watching Winter Olympics: 27% Percentage of Boys watching Summer Olympics: 36% Winter Olympics are more popular, and so that means Women`s Figure Skating is the hottest Olympic sport. After comparing this all to that all, I`ve noticed what is most popular. But most popular->hottest, so it`s "hottest", as some people say. I, myself, prefer Pair Figure Skating, but people can think what they want. Luge->not as popular as->mens figure skating->not as popular as->womens figure skating Pair Figure skating falls in about 4th place for Winter Olympics. Luge is about 7th though.
