How many years are there until the next olympic games?

The Olympic Games happen every four years. The last Olympics was held in 2008. Therefore, the next event will be in 2012 in London, UK. --Added by AJMinNJ-- While the first poster is right that the next Olympics is the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, their explanation forgot about the Winter Olympic, which are also held every four years, but are offset from the Summer Olympics by 2 years. So after the 2012 Summer Games, the next Olympics will be 2014 Winter Olympic Games, not the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.


Why are the Olympics held every two years?

There are both summer Olympic games and winter Olympic games. Both of which are held four years apart with a two year interval between the summer games and the winter games. So for example, if the last summer Olympics were held in 2004, then the next olympic games will be held this summer, 2008.The Summer and Winter Olympic Games were held every four years and until 1992 they were both held in the same year. Since then they have been separated by a two year gap.


Which cities hosted the two Olympic Games that were only two years apart?

1992 featured both Summer and Winter games, in Barcelona, Spain and Albertville, France. Then the IOC decided to hold the winter games staggered from the Summer games, so in 1994 the winter games were held in Lillehammer, Norway. Now the winter games are held every four years, but there is some form of Olympic competition every two years.
