The 2018 Winter Olympics
The Olympic Games are divided into two distinct competitions — both the Winter Olympics as well as the Summer Olympics. Both occur every four years. The Winter Olympics is the smaller of these 2 contests, but it features events and a number of distinct sports.
Somewhat of course, the Winter Olympics are for sports which are practiced on snow and/or ice. They featured ski in a variety of forms, along with figure skating, speed skating, bobsleigh, and curling.
In the past several years sports are added to the program. These include a few other forms of skiing and skating, snowboarding, and skeleton (a kind of sledding).
The introduction of sports has helped to expand the appeal of the Winter Olympics. They had been traditionally of interest mostly in North America and Europe, as most of the competing athletes came from such regions.
Throughout the last few years, however, athletes in countries like South Korea and Australia have competed successfully in occasions. It has led to increased audiences across the world.
Each Winter Olympics is held in a different host city. So far, they have been held in eleven countries. The USA has been home to the contest more times than any other nation (4), most recently back in 2002.
The prior Winter Olympics were held in 2014, in Sochi, Russia. The following are to be held in PyeongChang County, South Korea. Though they also hosted the Summer Olympics in 1988, That is South Korea’s first Winter Olympics.
