The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics
Just a year after Japan’s summer Olympics, the Games are back for a winter show in Beijing, China. The unusually short gap between Games is due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Beijing is the capital of China, with a population of more than 20 million people and the first city to host both a Summer and Winter Olympic games.
