The 2022 Winter Olympic Games take place in Beijing, from the 4-22 February 2022. This is the first time that a city will host both the Summer and Winter Games, they hosted the Summer Games in 2008.
There will be 109 events on the programme, spanning across seven Olympic Sports, and the athletes will be spread across three competition zones in central Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou.
Beijing will host all the ice events (curling, ice hockey and skating) and four snow events (snowboard big air and freestyle skiing big air, men’s and women’s), making full use of the legacy venues of Beijing 2008 in the spirit of Olympic Agenda 2020.
Yanqing, a suburban district of Beijing (80km to the northwest) and home to the famous Badaling and Juyongguan stretches of the Great Wall, is to host the alpine skiing and sliding (bobsleigh, skeleton and luge) events.
Zhangjiakou, further to the northwest in the neighbouring Hebei province, will host all the other snow events (snowboard, freestyle skiing, cross country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined and biathlon) in its Chongli district, a popular skiing destination.
The 2022 Winter Games will see the introduction of 7 new events: women’s monobob, freestyle skiing big air (men and women), mixed teams in short track relay, ski jumping, freestyle skiing aerials and snowboard cross.
