Winter Olympics

The 2022 Olympic Games are set to take place from Feb. 4-22 in Beijing, China – making Beijing the first city in the world to have held both the summer and winter Games. Across seven sports, there will be a total of 109 events held in three competition zones of central Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou.

The slogan for the games is "Joyful Rendezvous upon Pure Ice and Snow," after having been postponed a year since 2021 because of COVID-19. Specific measures will be enforced by The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) due to the ongoing pandemic. All athletes must be fully vaccinated in order to participate in the Games.
