The Military World Games are specifically organised for military sportspeople, and are convened by the International Military Sports Council. Their structure is similar to the Olympic Games, in that several sports and nations are represented, and the events are held every 4 years. Like the Olympics, the Military Games also introduced a Winter Edition which was first held in 2010, in the Aosta Valley of Italy. The first Summer Games were held in Rome in 1995.
