The first Olympic Winter Games were held in Chamonix, France in 1924. The Games were held every four years through 1936. World War I interrupted and no games were held in 1940 and 1944 but resumed in 1948. The Summer and Winter Games were held in the same years until the International Olympic Committee decided in 1986 to place them on separate four-year cycles in alternating even-numbered years.
This change was implemented in 1992, and the next Winter Games were again in 1994 and has occurred every four years since. This is not a photo of the actual item.1,359 Item as described. Rec'd item, looking forward to doing business with again.
