Were ice hockey and figure skating on the Summer Games programme?

Olympics Trivia

Neither true nor false. Skating was on the programme of the 1908 Games and ice hockey from 1920. At this time, there was no distinction between the winter and summer Games and the events could be staged over several months. It was only from 1925 that the IOC officially decided to separate the two events.
