The first official Winter Olympics were held in Chamonix, France (close to Grenoble, which had its own Olympics in 1968) in 1924 (January 25 - February 5), but weren't official called "Olympics Games" until 1926 - while they were on, they were known as "International Winter Sports Week".
The first Winter Olympic medal winner was Charles Jewtraw, an American speed skater.
Sixteen nations (with a total of 258 athletes, 247 men, and 11 women) participated in sixteen events, in six sports -
biathlon, bobsleigh, curling, ice hockey, skating and skiing.

Unfortunately, since the medal ceremony wasn't held 'till the end of the games, some athletes had already left - their medals were presented to other members of their teams.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
