South America, Africa and Antarctica.

I'm pretty sure there is not snow in South America unless you go the the Andys.

There are countries that in the Continent of North America that are in the Olympics, just as countries from the continents of South America, Europe, Asia and Australia are in the Olympics. North America is a Continent with many countries in it.

As of the 2008 Games, that would be Africa, South America, and Antarctica. Rio de Janeiro has been selected to host the 2016 Summer Games. That will be the first Olympics held in South America.NOTE: Continents do not host the games; countries host the games!

South Korea hosted the Olympics in 1988.

Athens, Greece, hosted the 1896 Summer Olympics, which was the first official olympic games. Paris, France, hosted the 1924 Summer Olympics. Berlin, Germany, hosted the 1936 Summer Olympics. Rome, Italy, hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics. Tokyo, Japan, hosted the 1964 Summer Olympics. Montreal, Canada, hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics. Seoul, South Korea, hosted the 1988 Summer Olympics. Barcelona, Spain, hosted the 1992 Summer Olympics. Atlanta, United States, hosted the 1996 Summer Olympics. Beijing, China, hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Africa, South America and Antarctica have yet to host an Olympic Games (up to 2012). The 2016 Olympic Games will be held in South America.

Never. Whenever the Olympics have been held in the western hemisphere, it has always been either one or the other.

The only competing continent that has not hosted a Summer Olympics Games is Africa. There have been Olympics held in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and Australia. There was also no African city that had hosted the FIFA World Cup until 2010, so a future African venue for the Olympics is not impossible. The only continent not represented in the Olympics is Antarctica, which has only scientists as permanent residents, and is by treaty an international scientific preserve.

South Korea has not hosted the Winter Olympics. Seoul did host the 1988 Summer Olympics.

The country that hosted the olympics in 1988 was seoul,south korea

The 2018 Winter Olympics will be hosted in PyeonChang South Korea.
