Host City: St Moritz 1928
The Winter Olympic Games were held in St Moritz, Switzerland, in 1928, between Feb 11-19. (and again in 1948). In these Winter Games, 25 Nations with 464 participants competed in 14 events. The Winter Games in St Moritz were plagued with warm weather, slowing some events and even canceling the 10,000-meter speed-skating race.
- Gillis Grafström of Sweden won the last of his three consecutive gold medals in figure skating in 1928; while Norwegian Sonja Henie will eventually equal that feat, winning the first of her three consecutive gold medals in figure skating at these Games at the age of 15 here.
