The first summer Olympics were held in 1896. The first winter Olympics began in 1924 concurrently with the summer Olympics. 1992, the IOC held separate Olympics alternating in 2 year spans, i.e. winter Olympics last held in 2006, summer Olympics last held in 2008.

The winter Olympics began in 1924 and through 1992 when the Winter Olympics were held in Albertville, France they occurred every 4 years in the same year as the summer Olympics.

Therefore, in order to get onto a 2 year cycle, the Winter Olympics were held two years after the 1992 games in 1994 in Lillehammer, Norway. After 1994 they resumed the 4 year cycle, occurring in 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010. The Summer games maintained the 4 year cycle, and occurred 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and will occur again in 2012.
