OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES:
FROM CHAMONIX IN 1924 TO TURIN IN 2006
The Olympic Games were inherited from antiquity and re-invented by Frenchman Pierre de Coubertin in 1896, initially only in the summer version. It wasn’t until 1924 that the first Winter Olympic Games were organized in Chamonix. Scheduled every four years, they evolved and changed over time, gradually integrating new practices. Turin hosted the 2006 edition.
