The ability of an element to catenate is primarily based on the bond energy of the element to itself. This ability is also influenced by a range of steric and electronic factors, including the electronegativity of the element.

so as S can form multiple bonds , it shows catenation.

S-S bond is strong enough for sulfur to exhibit catenation properties, but peroxide linkage is very unstable and easily breakable.. hence O-O bond is very weak and hence, catenation is not exhibited in oxygen.
