The first Olympic Winter Games were held in Chamonix, France in 1924. The Games were held every four years through 1936. World War I interrupted and no games were held in 1940 and 1944 but resumed in 1948. The Summer and Winter Games were held in the same years until the International Olympic Committee decided in 1986 to place them on separate four-year cycles in alternating even-numbered years. This change was implemented in 1992, and the next Winter Games were again in 1994 and has occurred every four years since.
Ice Hockey has been a part of the Olympic program since 1920 and was moved to the Winter Games in 1924 and forward. The game is played in tournament fashion and consists of preliminary round and a medal round. It was in 1980 the famous "Miracle on Ice" occurred when the United States beat out the Soviet Union in a hard-fought game wrought with tension from the Cold War. The game was a men's sport until the International Olympic Committee approved women's hockey to begin in 1998. Top medal rankings indicate Canada has the lead with 13 gold medals, the Soviet Union with 7 gold medals, and the United States with 3 gold medals.
