The 1984 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XIV Olympic Winter Games, was a winter multi-sport event which took place from 8–19 February 1984 in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, in present-day Bosnia-Herzegovina.Other candidate cities were Sapporo, Japan; and Gothenburg, Sweden. It was the first Winter Olympics held in a Communist state. It was also the second Olympics overall, as well as the second consecutive Olympics, to be held in a Communist nation after the 1980 Summer Olympics were held in Moscow, Soviet Union. The only games that have since been held in a communist state are the 2008 Summer Olympics held in Beijing, China. A fourth Olympic Games, and second Winter games, may be held in a communist country if Beijing is successful against Almaty in its bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
