Winter Sports Stories


Olympics flagIn honor of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang and the upcoming Bejing 2022 Winter Games, we've assembled a collection of short stories celebrating winter sports: ice skating, hockey, skiing, sledding, among other winter pastimes. The ancient Olympic Games were staged in Olympia, Greece from 776 B.C.E through 393 A.C.E., but did you know they did not occur again until 1896, the first modern Olympic Games in Athens, Greece? And the first Winter Olympics was held in Chamonix, France in 1924 on the slopes of Mont-Blanc.
