Welcome to my Olympic Games Quiz.

The Summer Olympics only happens once every four years, so if you missed out on London 2012 you will have to wait until Rio 2016!

In 2012 the Olympics and Paralympics were hosted by London, England and there were 26 different Olympic events to watch.....and by 2016 there will be a colossal 28.

The 22nd Olympic Winter Games have just been held in Sochi, Russia in February 2014. All of the venues are within 48 kilometers, or half an hour travelling of each other, in 11 specially built venues that are classified as either mountain or coastal.

With a staggering total of 98 medal events split across 15 sports, including 12 new events, this is going to be the biggest winter olympics to date.

The 23rd Winter Olypmics are scheduled to be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, between 9-25 February 2018.

      Based on my quiz performance here, I did not make the 2012 Olympic team. I'll be ready in 2016! I did learn quite a bit. Thank you for the training workout.

      Nice lens, I definitively don't know the Olympics that well. Just 2 things you may want to correct: The question 5 should not include a question mark at the end of every possible answers and the total Olympic score result should be "I could have done better". The word "did" appear in the sentence by mistake.

      No medal for me either! You could break each question down to individual quizzes for those looking to level up so that they would answer the same questions but get 100 points instead of 10...it you wanted and it would be an update for your lens as well.

      No medals for me on the quiz. I will be watching intently all the games I can though.
