Map of Winter Olympic Games sites[edit]

An editor substituted the following map for the one that I restored:

2022

I appreciate the usefulness of being able to link to the games site in the above map, but it's too cluttered to distinguish among sites in Europe, which greatly diminishes the utility of the idea. I have commented this map out of the article, pending discussion. User:HopsonRoad 00:42, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

At some point since May 2016, someone undid this change and replaced it with the old map. That map is way too cluttered. I too appreciate the usefulness of being able to link to the games, but the list serves that purpose just as well. This picture, which color-codes countries, is much more useful and aesthetically pleasing. I have reverted the change once again, pending discussion. I have also placed the map at the end of the section, because the list is much more relevant and information-rich. Vanderdecken12 (talk) 15:26, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Details[edit]

The United States has hosted the Games four times (1932, 1960, 1980, 2002); France has been the host three times (1924, 1968, 1992); Austria (1964, 1976), Canada (1988, 2010), Japan (1972, 1998), Italy (1956, 2006), Norway (1952, 1994), and Switzerland (1928, 1948) have hosted the Games twice. Germany (1936), Yugoslavia (1984), and Russia (2014) have hosted the Games once.

Technically, the United States itself has never hosted the games. Cities host the games, not countries. 151.141.81.92 (talk) 19:16, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Official title?[edit]

Since the official title of the games is Olympic Winter Games, why is this article not so named? I propose a name change. User:HopsonRoad 10:48, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
