Prior to 1992 both summer and winter Olympics were held in the same calendar year. After that year it was decided that the winter Olympics should be held in the off two years from the summer Olympics so in 1994 the winter Olympics were held in Lillihammer, Norway just two years after the previous winter Olympics.
