Winter Olympic Games are the biggest international competitions in winter sports that are held once every four years under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee. Winter Olympic Games were started in 1924, Chamonix France as a supplement to the summer Games.
Nikolay Aleksandrovich Panin-Kolomenkin was a Russian figure skater. He won the gold medal in special figures in the 1908 Summer Olympics. Panin was Russia's first Olympic champion. But before Chamonix, some winter sports were included in the Summer Olympic Games. Figure skating and ice hockey had already made an appearance at the Games, in London in 1908 for the first time, and in Antwerp in 1920 for the second.
On the programme of the Chamonix Games in 1924 were six sports with 16 events - military patrol (the precursor of biathlon), bobsleigh, curling, ice hockey, skating and skiing.
From Chamonix 1924 to Sochi 2014 there are 90 years and 22 editions of the Winter Games. From 1924 to 1992, the Winter Olympic Games were held in the same years as the Summer Olympics. Since 1994, the Winter Olympics are held with a shift of 2 years from the Summer Olympic Games.
While delegations from 16 European countries and North America with 258 competitors (11 women among them) were present at the celebration in Chamonix, about 6000 athletes and team members (with record number of women taking part) of more than 80 National Olympic Committees are expected in Sochi.
