Calgary 1988 - 13 to 28 February, 1988

XV Olympic Winter Games.

The bid for the 1988 Winter Olympics was Canada's seventh attempt at hosting a winter Games and Calgary's fourth.


Germany's Frank-Peter Roetsch became the first biathlete to win two gold medals at the same Winter Olympics; winning the 20km race and then following it up with victory in the 10km race three days later.


Christa Luding-Rothenburger, from the former East Germany, is the only person in any sport to have won medals in both the Winter Olympics and the Summer Olympics - in the same year.

Having won the cycling track silver medal in Seoul 1988 she followed up with a gold here, in the 1,000m speed skating event and a silver in the 500m speed skating.

She also went on to win gold in that event at Sarajevo 1984 and bronze in Albertville 1992.


The Team event was added to Nordic Combined.
