Best Answer

The first Olympics started at 1739AD

The Olympics (Summer or Winter) occurs every four years, but the Summer and Winter Olympics are offset by two years so that an Olympic competition actually happens every two years. Because each country must qualify their prospective athletes in time to compete in a given Olympics, competitions are held year-round.
