Winter Olympic Games - English Vocabulary

Added by Tomasz H. 6 February 2014 in category: English, General tips

The Winter Olympic Games is a international sport event that occurs once every four years. The first celebration of the Winter Olympics was held in Chamonix (France) in 1924.

The Winter Games have evolved since their inception. Sports have been added and some of them have been removed from the Olympic sports.

The 2014 Winter Olympics, the XXII Olympic Winter Games, are scheduled to take place from 7 to 23 February 2014 in Sochi (Russia). Ninety-eight events in fifteen winter sports will be held. Let's see the Winter Olympics sports in English:

Alpine skiing



Cross-country skiing


Figure skating

Freestyle skiing

Ice hockey


Nordic combined


Short track

Speed skating


Ski jumping
