The first Winter Olympic Games took place in Chamonix, France in 1924 with sixteen nations participating in thirteen events in five sports. This year in Park City, Utah (from February 8 to February 24) there will be athletes from at least eighty nations competing in eighty events in fifteen sports. The Paralympic Winter Games will follow, running from March 7 to March 16. Let the snow fly!
