II Winter Olympic Games.

The 1928 Winter Games, in St. Moritz, were held in a different nation to the Summer Games of the same year.

This is where the skeleton was first introduced as an Olympic event; similar to the luge, except that the athletes descend headfirst.

Finland's A. Clas Thunberg added another two gold medals to the three he won in Chamonix, four years earlier; for speed skating.

A Norwegian again showed his strength in the Nordic combined; this time it was Johan Grøttumbråten who took the gold and won the 18km cross-country event as well.

In figure skating, Norway's Sonja Henie won a gold medal at the age of fifteen; her record as the youngest winner of an individual event would stand for 74 years.

Gillis Grafström of Sweden picked up his third straight gold medal, in the men’s figure skating, and Canada continued to dominate with puck on ice.


The skeleton event made its first appearance at the Winter Olympics.
