The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics will feature 13 freestyle skiing events, including the first-ever Olympic competitions for freeski big air and mixed team aerials.
Since slopestyle and the halfpipe were added for Sochi 2014, they are the most recent additions to the freestyle ski schedule.
JUDGED EVENTS INCLUDE: Aerials, Halfpipe, Slopestyle, and Moguls Athletes in these events are given a score from a panel of judges.
Based on the difficulty and execution of their tricks and the quality of their form during each run.
In large air, athletes are judged not only on how far and how high they can fly, but also on how many times they land successfully.
Ski cross, in contrast to the other forms of freestyle skiing, is a timed rather than judged competition (the winner is the skier who finishes the course in the least amount of time).
Beijing is Set to Become the First City to Host Both the Summer and Winter Olympics
As of February 4, Beijing will be the first city to ever hold both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games.
For the second time since the Summer version nearly 14 years ago, the People’s Republic of China’s capital will play host to international athletes.
The National Aquatics Centre, formerly known as the ‘water cube,’ has been renamed the ‘ice cube,’ and is one of eight venues from Beijing 2008 that have been remodelled and repurposed for Beijing 2022.
The renowned ‘Bird’s Nest’ National Stadium will once again host the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
While the Capital Indoor Stadium has been turned from the Beijing 2008 volleyball stadium into the ice rink for short track and figure skating.
The XXIV Olympic Winter Games, also known as Beijing 2022, were an international multi-sport event held in Beijing, China.
And its surrounding territories from February 4-20, 2022, with certain events commencing on February 2, 2022.
Human rights atrocities in China, such as the Uyghur genocide, sparked calls for a boycott of the games being held in Beijing.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused health and safety precautions to be put in place, and the Games were closed to the public for the second consecutive Games.
Just like they were for the Summer Olympics held in Tokyo six months previously (with selected events open to invited guests at a reduced capacity).
