When the Olympic Movement was just beginning, it was small and somewhat intimate, lacking global recognition. Only 258 athletes from sixteen nations competed in Chamonix in the first Olympic Winter Games in 1924. However, times have changed, and the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games were attended by 2,600 athletes representing 82 countries. Along with this growth has come the need for sizable revenues to ensure that the Games are successful.
