The first summer olympic's of the modern era was held in 1896, the same year as the winter Olympics. It was not until 1992 that they separated the summer and winter Olympics to different years.
The first summer Olympics were held in 1896. The first winter Olympics began in 1924 concurrently with the summer Olympics. 1992, the IOC held separate Olympics alternating in 2 year spans, i.e. winter Olympics last held in 2006, summer Olympics last held in 2008.
The summer Olympics is held every four years.
the 2012 summer Olympics will be held in London, England
1992 was the last year they were held the same year. 1994 was the first time the Winter Olympics were not in the same year as the Summer Olympics.
I can answer your first question, the next summer Olympics will be in 2012.
there will be no Summer Olympics in 2010, the Winter Olympics were held this year. the next Summer Olympics will be in 2012, in London, England.
1992 was the final year the Winter Olympics and Summer Olympics were held in the same year.
1980 Summer Olympics held in Moscow, Russia, USSR.
The summer Olympics were held in Moscow and the winter Olympics were held in Lake Placid, NY. The winter and summer Olympics were held during the same year prior to 1994
Instead of holding both Olympics in the same year, starting in 1994 the Winter and Summer Olympics are now held two years apart. The next Winter Olympics will be held in 2010 and the next Summer Olympics will be held in 2012.
