Beijing makes history when it becomes the first city to host both a Summer and Winter Olympics in 2022.

14 years on from the 2008 Games in China, the world’s best athletes on snow and ice travel to Beijing for the 24th international multisport winter event.

More medals will be won than ever before, with 109 events scheduled across more than two weeks of action.

For a sixth successive Games, there are no sports added, but seven more events have been added to the schedule, including four mixed events.

They are the men’s and women’s big air freestyle, women’s monobob in bobsleigh, mixed team competitions in freestyle skiing aerials, ski jumping, and snowboard cross, and the mixed relay in short track speed skating.

A women’s Nordic combined event had been expected to be added to the programme, but an application was turned down - it remains the only Winter Olympic sport in which there is only a male competition.
