winter olympics

The Olympics take place every 4 years. The summer Olympics and winter Olympics offer a distinct range of seasonal sports, and they occur 2 years apart. 

Typical summer sports event include athletics, long jump, 100 metre sprint, and javelin.

Standard winter events include skiing, ice skating, bobsleigh, and luge (the art of bobsleighing head first). 




Within skating are numerous competitions, including speed skating and figure skating. Ice hockey is another popular winter sport and there are some modern additions to the Olympics, too, such as snowboarding. 

The range of competitive events is amazing and people do tend to travel across the world to attend them. 


Figure Skating


The winter Olympics take place next year in Japan and tickets are already on sale, as are flights to the oriental archipelago. You are recommended to book now if you wish to attend this exciting event.
