1980 Winter Olympic Games

 

Lake Placid, United States

The 13th Winter Olympics was the third to be staged in the United States - the first time a nation had been given the honour more than twice. It was also the second to be held in Lake Placid, 48 years after it hosted the third winter celebration. The Soviet Union topped the medals table for the sixth time at a Winter Games, equalling Norway's record. A record-equalling 37 nat
ions and more women than ever before (234) took part. However, male competitor figures were down for the second Winter Games running (833), so the overall number slipped to 1067.
