1976 Winter Olympic Games

 

Innsbruck, Austria

The 12th Winter Olympics was the second staged in Innsbruck, just 12 years after the last, meaning that the city joined St Moritz in neighbouring Switzerland as the only dual hosts. The Soviet Union topped the medals table for the fifth time at a Winter Games, to lie just one behind Norway's record. A record-equalling 37 nat
ions and more women than ever before (228) took part. However, male competitor figures were down to 900, so the overall number slipped by over one hundred from 1972 to 1128.
