Overview

In 1908 at the London Olympics, figure skating events(/games/sportgames?editionid=5&sportid=FSK) were held as part of the Olympic program. In 1920, figure skating(/games/sportgames?editionid=7&sportid=FSK) again figured on the Olympic program and an ice hockey tournament was also held that year in Antwerp. Between those two events, the IOC argued long and hard about the possibility of staging Olympic Winter Games. Strangely, the main dissenters to this idea were the Scandanavian countries because they did not want their Nordic Games to be undermined by Olympic Winter events.
