Like the Road to Rio course taught at College for Seniors before the 2016 Summer Olympics, the instructor will start this course with a brief description of the ancient Olympic Games, and then move forward in subsequent sessions with a review of every Winter Olympics from the first one in 1924. At the final class, we will preview the 2018 Games that scheduled to open in PyeongChang, South Korea on February 9, 2018.
