Best Answer

It was decided to have the winter and summer Olympics on in different years. The winter Olympics were changed so that there is an Olympic event every 2 years. Rather than make the winter Olympians wait 6 years to the next event, it was decided to start the new timing in 1994 instead. Both winter and summer games are every 4 years now.

Where was the 1996 winter Olympics?

There was not a 1996 winter Olympics. There was a winter Olympics in 1992 and then another one in 1994 to make it so that the winter and summer Olympics were not in the same year.


What was the first year that the winter Olympics ceased to be the same year as the summer Olympics?

The 1994 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XVII Olympic Winter Games, was a winter multi-sport event celebrated from 12 to 27 February 1994 in and around Lillehammer, Norway. Lillehammer failed to win the bid for the 1992 event. Lillehammer was awarded the 1994 Winter Olympics in 1988, after beating Anchorage, United States; Γ–stersund, Sweden; and Sofia, Bulgaria. The Games were the first to be held in a different year than the Summer Olympics, the only one to be held two years after the previous winter games, and the last to be held in a small town.


When did summer and winter Olympics split?

Winter and Summer Events used to occur in the same year, divisible by the number 4. However, they frequently occurred at different locations. 1992 was the last year in which the Summer and Winter Olympics were held in the same year. The IOC decided to split the years so that one Olympics would occur every two years. In 1994, the Winter Olympics were held again. Summer Olympics had to wait for the usual four years, until 1996, for their next celebration. Thus now Summer Olympics still only fall on leap years, and Winter Olympics fall either two years before or after a Summer Olympics. Both Olympics are still four years apart, after the initial two-year distance from 1992 to 1994

Why did the winter Olympics only have two years between 1992 1994?

That is when they switched having the summer and winter games in the same year and they chose to have one or the other every two years. So, the winter games were played two years apart to get on the new rotation.

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.
