III Olympic Winter Games
Host city Lake Placid, New York, USA
Events 14 in 4 sports
Opening ceremony February 4
Closing ceremony February 15
Stadium w:Lake Placid Speedskating Oval

The 1932 Winter Olympics, officially known as the III Olympic Winter Games, were a winter multi-sport event which was celebrated in 1932 in Lake Placid, New York. The games opened on February 4 and closed on February 15. It was the 1st Winter Olympics held in the United States.

HighlightsEdit

  • The Games were opened by New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt was elected President of the United States later the same year.
  • Irving Jaffee won the 5,000 m (3.1 mi.) and the 10,000 m (6.2 mi.) speedskating gold medals, beating previous champion and world record holder Ivar Ballangrud in the 10,000 m by 4.5 m (5 yards), mainly because the favorites were unaccustomed to the common start.
  • The USA won the medal tally with a total of 12 medals (6 gold, 4 silver, and 2 bronze).
  • Seventeen countries participated.
