Best Answer

because there are 4 gods in Greece

they use to celebrate

that is how Olympics was made

they use to celebrate the gods on separate years

but now they celebrate the gods together

so Olympics is every 4 years

The summer Olympics are held every 4 years, same with the winter, but they alternate, so that the summer Olympics is in 2000 and the winter Olympics is in 2002. Then that means the next summer Olympics is in 2004 and the next winter is in 2006.

Why did the Olympics hold games in 1980 if they are held every 4 years.?

Up until 1992 both the summer and winter Olympics were held every 4 years, during the same year. At this point the cost of broadcasting rights was becoming so expensive that the televison networks could not afford biding on both the summer and winter in the same calender year. It was cheaper to move the winter Olympics, therefore in 1994, there was another winter Olympics, only 2 years after the previous one. Since then the winter Olympics have been held every 4 years, staggered 2 years apart from the summer Olympics.
