This July 2012 will be London's third time
According to my geography teacher, the answer is 16. And London with host the Olympics for the 4th time in 2012.
That's a good question and without knowing population data at the time the city hosted the Games that is a tough one to answer. However, of all cities to host the Olympics the current smallest is Lake Placid in the USA whose population was reported in the 2000 census at 2,638. Lake Placid hosted the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics. In 1960 squaw valley hosted the winter Olympics, its an unincorporated town in California, might be smaller than lake Placid
That was the 1992 Winter Olympics that were held in Albertville. Other Olympic Games held in France were the 1900 and 1924 Summer Olympics held in Paris, the 1924 Winter Olympics held in Chamonix, and the 1968 Winter Olympics held in Grenoble.
It makes sense that it would be hosted in different countries. All the participants are from around the world and to make it just and not give advantage to any single country over another, they are designed to take place in various continents and geographies. Plus I feel like the Olympics tries not to give too much emphasis on one country being the "important" one and the best way to do that is to vary the location. Don't ya think?
