Best Answer

Your question is very vague. . There are two Olympics - Summer sports and Winter sports. The games for these are held 4 years apart but the Winter games comes 2 years after the Summer Games.

The last winter Olympics was in 2010, held in Vancouver Canada.

The last summer Olympics was in 2008, held in Beijing China.

We are currently holding the 2012 summer Olympics in London England.

We will hold the next 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Why was the first modern olympics held in Greece?

The first modern Olympics were held in Athens, Greece, because Greece 'invented' the Olympics in ancient times. The date was 1896. During WW2 they were suspended of course. They were scheduled for 1940 as they were in Berlin in 1936. Hitler got into the way for the never held 1940 Olympics. I have a comment on the modern day Olympics. In ancient Greece the idea was to credit the individual winners .. they were never intended to be a contest as to how many medals a country won. In ancient Greece the city states entered athletes but as example Sparta did not gather medals...
