Question An Olympic Huh? What? When?

I was reading about past Olympic female figure-skating champions and I noticed that Katarina Witt won in 1984 and 1988. So what years did Kristie Yamaguchi and Oksana Baiul win? Nagano was held in 1998. That means Oksana must've won it in 1994. In which year did Kristie win? If Kristie won in 1990, that means there was only a two-year gap between Witt's Olympic win and the next Olympics. If Kristie won in 1992, that means another two-year gap between Olympics. Was the 1984 & 1988 wins of Katarina's incorrect (a typo)? Was there a decision to separate the Summer and Winter Olympics at some point during these years? Maybe I'm wrong and Kristie never won an Olympic Gold medal. What's the story? I'm confused.

The Winter Games of 1994 followed the Winter Games of 1992 so the Summer Olympics and White Olympics would not happen the same year.

That's true. Until 1992, Summer and Winter Olympics were in the same year, but different times and places of course, and from 1994 on the Games are in different years, which is much better.

So I think Kristie must have won Albertville 1992 then.
