There were no Olympic games in 1993. There were summer Olympic games in 1992 and 1996. There were winter Olympic games in 1992 and 1994.
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.
Historically the winter and summer Olympics both occured in the same year until 1994. In 1994, the Winter Olympics took place and and in 1996 the Summer Olympics took place and now they alternate so that there is an Olympic Games every two years.
The Winter and Summer Games were held on the same year until 1992. At that time the Winter Games split from the Summer Games, and were begun to be held on alternating even years. The first Winter Olympic Games to be held on this new schedule was in 1994 in Lillehammer, Norway. That is why there was only a two year gap between 1992 and 1994.
The Summer Olympic games are held every 4 years, in years evenly divisible by 4. The Winter Olympic Games are also held every 4 years, offset by 2 years from the Summer Games. So there is a two-year interval between any given Summer Olympics and the preceding or following Winter Games. The change to the schedule of the modern Olympics was made in 1994, so there were Winter Olympics in both 1992 and 1994. Previously they were held the same year as the Summer Olympics, beginning in 1924.
A decision was made in 1986 that the winter and summer Olympics would no longer be during the same year. This is why today the winter and summer Olympics are two years apart. Therefore, this is why there were winter Olympics in 1992 and 1994. It was due to the change in years for the Olympics. The Winter Olympic Games are much smaller and much less expensive to produce than the Summer Games, which is why there was a "bonus" Winter Olympics in 1994. The last time the Olympic games were held in the same year was 1992: Winter Games in Albertville, France and Summer Games in Barcelona, Spain.
The Summer Olympics occur every............... 4 years.They occur every 4 years. Since 1994, summer and winter Olympic games occur every 2 years alternating. For example, in 2000, the summer Olympic games were held. Then in 2002, the winter Olympics took place.
They didn't. The Winter Olympics are still held every four years, but as of 1994 Winter Olympic years are midway between Summer Olympic years.
