2022 Olympic Winter Games Begin Today in Beijing


The 2022 Olympic Winter Games kick off today in Beijing, China. Beijing was selected as the host city in July 2015.


The games run from today until February 20.


The Games are subject to various concerns and controversies as well as diplomatic boycotts due to the ongoing Uyghur genocide and human rights abuses in China.


COVID-19 has resulted in the implementation of health and safety protocols, and restrictions on public attendance at the Games.


Team Gushue earned the right to represent Canada in men’s curling at the Olympics by winning the Tim Hortons Canadian Curling Trials in November 2021. They will face Denmark in their first game on February 9.
