Prior to the first Winter Olympics in 1924, both Ice Hockey and figure skating were competed at the Summer Olympics. Once the Winter Olympics started, those two sports moved from the Summer Games to the Winter Games.
One, the Summer Olympics. There is one Olympic Games played every two years. The Winter Olympic will occur in 2010, the Summer Games again in 2012, the Winter Games again in 2014.
There are both summer Olympic games and winter Olympic games. Both of which are held four years apart with a two year interval between the summer games and the winter games. So for example, if the last summer Olympics were held in 2004, then the next olympic games will be held this summer, 2008.The Summer and Winter Olympic Games were held every four years and until 1992 they were both held in the same year. Since then they have been separated by a two year gap.
Yes, they are broadcast with as much fanfare as the Summer Games. Note that they now occur in alternation with the Summer Games, so that there is an Olympic event every two years. The next Winter Games will be in 2014.
1992 was the final year that both the Winter Games and Summer Games were held in the same year. Now, the Winter Games and Summer Games are held two years apart from each other.
Starting in 1994, the Winter Games and Summer Games were held two years apart instead of in the same year. The Winter Games were held in 1994 and the Summer Games were held in 1996.
There are two types of Olympic games, each with its own set of sports. There are 29 sports in the summer games and 15 in the winter games.
every two years (alternating in summer and winter) i believe that the next olympic games are in 2010 and in Vancouver ( during winter ) hope this helped, Cassie sassie
The Olympic games are played every four years. But the Summer and Winter Olympics are "staggered", so that there is an Olympic Games every two years (summer, winter, summer winter, etc). The tradition of the Summer Olympics began in 1896. There have been several games not played due to World War I and World War II.
1992 featured both Summer and Winter games, in Barcelona, Spain and Albertville, France. Then the IOC decided to hold the winter games staggered from the Summer games, so in 1994 the winter games were held in Lillehammer, Norway. Now the winter games are held every four years, but there is some form of Olympic competition every two years.
The word "modern" distinguishes the games since 1896 from the ancient Greek Olympic games from 776 BC. There are two Olympics games, summer and winter, referring to the season of year the games are held in and the sports contested therein.
The Olympic Winter Games are held every four years in the year between Summer Olympic Games, in a year divisible by two. As 2017 is not divisible by 2 there were no Winter Olympics in 2017
There is an Olympic games every two years. But it alternates between summer and winter Olympics.
