From the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th, the winter Olympics were a source of national pride for European countries. But after world war ii, they started to lose their importance. The European Union’s decision to hold its own winter Olympics in 1992 was greeted with hostility by other sports federations, who believed that sports should be held in an international context.
The first Winter Olympics were held in Chamonix, France in 1924. Since then, the Winter Olympics have developed into an international sporting event. Skiing is one of the most popular winter sports, especially in Alpine countries such as Switzerland and Norway. Here’s a look at skiing at the Winter Olympics.
