Canada hosted Winter Olympics twice. Calgary in 1988 and Vancouver in 2010.

It's a bit weird that Germany have hosted the Winter Olympics just once, despite being so wildly successful in them!

Many of the medals are from East Germany which are now counted in for Germany as a whole. I assume that East Germany never applied for hosting Winter Olympics, because they don't have high mountains for the alpine competitions.

Few years ago, Munich wanted to apply, but citizens voted against it, because of the expected costs and raise of real estate prices and rent (which are among the highest in Germany already).

Btw.: Sweden never hosted Winter Olympics either.

The coldest it has ever been in Greece is -6,5 °C. I don't think they invented much of the winter games.

The order doesn’t make sense to me, the list is not sorted by # winter nor # summer nor total #. What is it sorted by?

only canada is out of place for total olympics held, this is because they originally placed it in the quiz with one winter. must have forgot vancouver.

"Countries which have hosted" sounds very awkward. Not to mention, you then change the "which" to the proper "that" in the subtitle! Pick a lane!
