Best Answer

The first time the Summer Olympics were in London was in 1908. The second time was in 1948. London is the only city to have hosted the modern Summer Olympics three times, and the United Kingdom is one of only two countries that has hosted more than two modern Summer Olympics to date (the other is the United States, which has hosted four).
