Host City: Lillehammer 1994

The 17th Winter Olympic Games were held in Lillehammer, Norway, in 1994, between Feb 12-27. This was two years after the previous Winter Games in Albertville, and thus ended the four-year Olympic cycle of staging both Winter and Summer Games in the same year, and began a new schedule of the Winter and Summer Games to alternate every two years. In Lillehammer, 67 Nations with 1739 participants competed in 61 events.
