The Olympics are held every four years because the Ancient Games held at Olympia in Greece, were held every four years. The time in between the Ancient Games was called the Olympiad and was used for dating historical events.
Beginning in 1896 , the Summer Games are held in years divisible by 4, while the corresponding Winter Games (begun in 1924 and numbered eight Olympiads lower) were later moved to the intervening even years, i.e. 2 years later. (There were Winter Olympics in both 1992 and 1994.)
The 2016 Summer Olympics are the 31st modern Summer games.
The 2018 Winter Olympics are the 23rd modern Winter games.
