Belarus at the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2022

The 24th Winter Olympic Games were held in Beijing on 4-20 February 2022. The Games featured 109 medal events in seven sports (15 disciplines). Belarus, a nation that excels in many winter sports, was also among the participating countries (91).

The Chinese capital became the first city in history to host both the Summer (2008) and Winter (2022) Olympic Games. The official motto was "Together for a Shared Future". It was very symbolic, because the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing were designed to become the most environmentally friendly and safe in the context of the pandemic. Eco-standards for buildings, reduced carbon dioxide emissions, using electricity from alternative sources, the safest possible ice production and much more… The Chinese organizers tried to hold the ‘greenest’ event in Olympic history. The mascot of the Games was panda Bin Dung Dung.

According to the IOC’s decision announced in 2018, seven new medal disciplines were added to the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, which was the largest expansion of the Olympic program after the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City. Thanks to this, the number of sets of awards in Beijing was brought to 109, a record high in the history of the Winter Games. The Winter Olympics included: women's monobob, Big Air freestyle skiing for men and women, plus mixed team events in short track speed skating, ski jumping, ski aerials and snowboardcross.
