The Winter Olympics Are On!
The 2018 Winter Olympics are being held right now in PyeongChang, China. In light of this big event dominating the media, the team at Out and About Locksmiths Canberra thought we’d share some information about it. Most people already know the Olympics are held every 4 years in various countries. What might not be known, is that there are two categories of Olympics, Summer and Winter, which are staggered. This means that if you include both categories, they are held every two years.
Sports are divided in to two categories, summer and winter. Winter events include sports like bobsledding, various forms of ice-skating and skiing, snow boarding and ice hockey. Although Australia has hosted the summer Olympics twice (1956 & 2000), it has never held a winter Olympics to date. While it is quite popular, Winter Olympics gain less attention than the Summer ones, possibly due to a less broad range of sports.
