Not recently, but before WWII and also soon after the Olympics barely went out of Europe.

FIFA World Cup Soccer and the Olympics back to back is also somewhat unlikely, to use your term, or at least people tend to put it forward sometimes as a reason why cities/countries would be passed over, but in reality it does happen: Germany '72 + '74, Mexico '68 + '70 and U.S.A. '94 + '96. So now Brazil too.
