48TEACHING VALUES SECTION 3 SHARING THE VALUES THROUGH SPORT AND THE OLYMPIC GAMES There are two kinds of Olympic Games: Summer Games and Winter Games. Winter Games include the sports that take place on snow or ice. Each type of Games is held every four years. BEFORE YOU READ – QUESTIONS TO ASK What kinds of cities do you think could host a Summer Olympic Games? A Winter Games? Could a city near you be a host? READING In countries in the northern part of the world, people competed in sports on snow and ice. They wanted these sports included in the Olympic programme. In 1924 a winter sports week was held in Chamonix, France. The International Olympic Committee supported this event. It was a very big success and the IOC then agreed to name the Chamonix competitions as the first Winter Games. Since then the Winter Games have taken place every four years – at first in the same year as the Summer Games. Now there is a two- year difference between the Summer and Winter Games. Below Chamonix 1924: An 11- year- old Sonja Henie ( NOR) shows the poise and grace that would see her win three figure skating gold medals at future Olympic Winter Games.
