Welcome to 2012, YOG fans - it’s now the year of the first Winter Youth Olympic Games! To celebrate, Innsbruck 2012 welcomed in the New Year in style with the arrival of the Youth Olympic torch in Vienna and a fantastic street party.

To discover the sport disciplines in Innsbruck, check out their site.

And with just a couple of days to go until this next chapter in Olympic history begins, we thought it would be cool to look back on where it all started, with the first ever Olympic Winter Games held in 1924 in Chamonix, France.

Amazingly, despite almost 90 years having passed, many of the sports haven’t really changed that much. What do you think?
