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. Before 1994, the Winter Olympics and Summer Olympics were held in the same years. The only Winter Olympics that were two years apart were the 1992 Games and the 1994 Games.
the winter Olympics occurs every 4 years, 2 years after each summer Olympics.
there are 4 years in between the 'summer' Olympics, and then, 2 years later, the winter Olympics. e.g. the Olympics in 2008, the winter Olympics in 2010 and then the Olympics in 2012 and so-on.
because the summer Olympics come every 4 years and so do the winter Olympics. they alternate every 2 years. so this year is winter and in 2 years in summer
The year 2009 will not have Summer Olympics or Winter Olympics. The Olympics only occur once every 2 years, and alternates Summer, Winter, Summer, Winter...
every 2 years i think
The Olympics are every 4 years, but since we have the season of summer & winter Olympics it is more like every 2 years for the Olympics.
4, same as the summer olympics, just 2 years different.
The summer Olympics and the winter Olympics run on a four year cycle. Basically every two years there is either a summer or winter games [winter:1998,2002,2006,2010,2014] [summer:2000,2004,2008,2012.2016].
yes the summer olyimpics do occer every 4 years and so do the winter olyimpics they olternatethe summer olyimpics occur every 4 years, the same as the winter olympics, but the winter olyimpics happen 2 years after the summer olyimpics, and 2 years after the winter olyimpics are the summer olympics again, and it repeats
