With the conclusion of the Turin Games in 2006, there have been 20 Olympic Winter Games. However, there have been 21 gold medals awarded in men's ice hockey.

How can this be?


Answer

The first Winter Olympics was held in 1924 in Chamonix France. Men's ice hockey has been played in all 20 Winter Olympics through the Turin Italy Games. However, men's ice hockey was also part of the 1920 (Summer) Olympics in Antwerp Belgium; hence, the extra gold medal.
