The Winter Olympic Games are held once every four years in different cities across the world.

From 1924 to 1992, the Summer and Winter Games were each held in the same year, every four years. Since then, the Summer and Winter Games are each still held every four years but the Summer Games are celebrated during the first year of an Olympiad (a four-year period) and the Winter Games are held in the third year.
The first Winter Olympic Games were held from 25 January to 5 February 1924 in Chamonix, France.
More than 250 athletes from 16 nations competed in 16 events contested in five sports.
With a total of 368 medals, Norway is the most successful nation in Winter Olympic history; this tally includes 132 gold medals, 125 silver, and 111 bronze.
Events will be held in 15 disciplines across seven sports at the Beijing 2022 Games.

109 sets of medals will be awarded, seven more than there were at PyeongChang 2018. New events will be contested in bobsleigh, short track, freestyle skiing, ski jumping, and snowboard.
