Comprehensive information on the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

Six months have passed since the conclusion of the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020, but the Winter Olympics in Beijing in 2022 are already drawing near.

In spite of the fact that COVID-19 did not pose a significant danger in the end, the Olympic Games will be held inside a bubble; in contrast to the situation in Tokyo, some fans will be permitted to attend.

In an effort to add to Australia's overall medal tally, which currently stands at five gold, five silver, and five bronze, nearly fifty athletes from that country will travel to China.

Since Torah Bright and Lydia Lassila won gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, no other Australian athlete has been successful in winning the gold medal. However, several athletes have defied the COVID pandemic to put themselves in with a genuine shot of winning.

Some of the names that are looking forward to making a name for themselves include Scotty James, Jakara Anthony, Tess Coady, Jarryd Hughes, Belle Brockhoff, and Bree Walker.

But for athletes hailing from our scorched nation, it's not just about winning; it's about writing their names in the annals of history.

Tahli Gill and Dean Hewitt, an Australian curling pair, have earned qualification for the Winter Olympics in Beijing 2022. They will be the very first Australians to compete for medals in the sport of curling at a Winter Olympics.

While Channel 7 will have you covered for all of the major events, 7plus will be the destination for the first time to live stream even more of the Winter Olympics live and for free.

Due to the fact that the time difference between Beijing and the majority of Australian states is relatively small, the action will take place from midday until the dead of night over the course of a spectacular two weeks.

The Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Beijing 2022 will take place on Friday, February 4, and the Closing Ceremony will take place on Sunday, February 20.

Beginning on Friday, March 4 and continuing through Sunday, March 13, 2022, Beijing will play host to the Winter Paralympics.

The coverage of the Winter Olympics, which can be viewed live and for free in Australia on Seven and 7plus, will begin at 12pm AEDT during the weekdays and 10am AEDT on the weekends.

Sunrise with David Koch and Natalie Barr will be broadcasting live from the center of all the action in Beijing, bringing the most recent highlights, news, and interviews to the air each morning. Mark Beretta will be reporting live from the scene.

Even though Seven will have you covered for all of the major events that will be broadcast on television, 7plus is the place to go to watch even more of the Olympics live streamed for free.

Start off by going to the website for 7plus or downloading the 7plus app onto your Smart TV, mobile device, or tablet. Once you have done that, you can register or log in to get started.

There will be up to twenty channels that cover every sport.

Included in the following are some features of the 7plus app:

  • Watchlist and Destination Sport Pages: Add your preferred sports to a list that is simple to find, and then locate, save, and stream your preferred live and on-demand action.
  • Continue watching by either watching the entire segment again or picking up where you left off the previous time.
  • Live captioning, as well as captioning for replays, will be provided in multiple languages.

The 7plus app is compatible with both Chromecast and Airplay streaming media players.

The commentary team for Seven's broadcasts will be led by Hamish McLachlan and Abbey Gelmi, with Johanna Griggs, Matt Shirvington, Emma Freedman, Basil Zempilas, and Georgie Parker also contributing.

Mel McLaughlin, Jason Richardson, and Mark Beretta will be present in Beijing to assist fans in keeping up with all of the most recent news and information.

Lydia Lassila, the reigning world champion in aerial skiing, will also make her debut as a broadcaster during the Winter Olympics.

Olympic aerial skier and 24-time World Cup winner Jacqui Cooper is a part of Seven's commentary line-up. Gold medal hero Steven Bradbury, who won an incredible come-from-behind victory at Salt Lake City in 2002, also joins Seven's commentary line-up to call the speed skating events. This move comes 20 years after Bradbury's victory at Salt Lake City.

Olympic legends such as Katya Crema, David Culbert, Scott McGrory, Stephanie Prem, Michelle Steele, and Jono Brauer, as well as illustrious athletes from Australia such as Mia Rennie, Ryan Tiene, Mitch Tomlinson, Luke Kneller, Michael Kennedy, and Dirk Nannes, will compete alongside them.

The highly anticipated mixed doubles curling event will be called by Steve Hewitt, the father of Dean Hewitt, a member of the inaugural Australian curling team. His son and teammate Tahli Gill will make history in Beijing by winning the event.

Seven's commentary team is rounded out by experienced callers Alister Nicholson and Matt Hill, and 7NEWS reporters Matt Carmichael, Jacqui Felgate, and David Woiwod report from the Games.

In addition, Seven will have international callers and commentators from the Olympic Host Broadcasting Service contributing to its coverage of the Olympics.

The opening ceremony for the 2022 Winter Olympics, which will take place in Beijing, is scheduled to take place on Friday, February 4.

Some of the competitions will start two days earlier, on Wednesday, February 2, while others will start on Friday, February 4.

The opening ceremony, which will begin at 11 p.m. local time (11 p.m. AEDT), will include the parade of nations and the lighting of the Olympic cauldron.

The closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics will begin at 11 p.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, February 20.

Snowboarding on the halfpipe is Scotty James' specialty.

The men's halfpipe final at Beijing 2022 could very well be the most compelling competition of the entire Olympic Winter Games, and Australia's bronze medalist is right in the thick of things. Shaun White, winner of the gold medal at PyeongChang 2018, is making a slow recovery from a recent COVID-19 infection; however, the Japanese duo of Ayumu Hirano and Yuto Totsuka, who won the silver medal at PyeongChang 2018 and the world championship in 2021, will put up a tough fight regardless.

James, who is 27 years old, won the gold medal at the X Games in January, edging out Ayumu Hirano (and his younger brother Kaishu), while Valentino Guseli, who is 16 years old, finished in sixth place and established himself as one to watch with his performance. In the five World Cup competitions that took place before and after the 2019 World Championships, James came out on top each time, but he had to settle for second place behind Totsuka at the 2021 World Championships.

Matt Graham (freestyle skiing - moguls, dual moguls)

The 27-year-old skier from New South Wales won a silver medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, and he is currently competing against Mikael Kingsbury of Canada, who is widely considered to be the best mogul skier in the history of the sport. Both in the moguls and the dual moguls competitions at the World Championships in 2019, Graham finished in second place behind Kingsbury.

However, due to a broken collarbone he sustained during a moguls training run during a World Cup competition in December 2021, the Australian will have a difficult time competing in Beijing. The accident that Graham was involved in prevented him from competing in the final, despite the fact that he had qualified fourth. Since the last Winter Olympics, he had achieved a number of impressive results, including a victory in the dual moguls competition in December 2020 and several finishes in the top five across both of his disciplines.

Freestyle skier Jakara Anthony, who specializes in moguls and dual moguls.

Anthony appears to be in good shape to take on the challenge in Zhangjiakou, in contrast to Graham, whose chances are less certain as a result of his injury. The 23-year-old finished in second place in the 2019-20 World Cup, behind only the gold medalist from the 2018 Olympics, Perrine Laffont, prior to COVID and a low-key 2020-21 season. But Anthony is back to her best in the 2021-22 World Cup, where she won a moguls-dual moguls double in December in addition to three silvers and three bronzes across the board in the various events she competed in.

Tess Coady is a snowboarder who competes in slopestyle and big air.

Four years after she was cruelly robbed of her opportunity to make her Winter Olympics debut in PyeongChang due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained during a practice run, the 21-year-old looms as a wildcard for Australia. The Victorian made a strong comeback and finished third in the slopestyle rankings for the 2020-21 World Cup. She also won bronze at the 2021 world championships. But Coady arrives in China riding an even higher wave of success after claiming victory in the final World Cup competition before Beijing 2022.

Snowboard cross competition between Jarryd Hughes and Belle Brockhoff

The fact that Hughes won a silver medal at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang 2018 would normally lead one to believe that he is one of Australia's greatest hopes for glory in Beijing. This is still the case, with the exception that the 26-year-old rider has a better chance of joining Brockhoff on the podium in the newly created mixed team snowboard cross competition. In the inaugural year of competition for the event at the world championships, the two athletes collaborated to win the gold medal.

Since she came in 11th place at the Winter Olympics four years ago, Brockhoff herself has enjoyed a remarkable run of success. As was the case with Anthony, Brockhoff excelled in the World Cup in 2019-20, claiming one victory and finishing on the podium a total of four more times, before COVID caused a quiet season in 2020-21. The 29-year-old player has made a comeback as a contender for the 2021-22 season and currently holds the third spot in the World Cup rankings.

Laura Peel (freestyle skier - aerials)

The woman who won the world championship in 2015 came in fifth place at the PyeongChang 2018 games, but she has established herself as one of the competitors to beat at the Beijing 2022 games. Peel took home the gold medal at the 2021 world championship, and she continues to rack up victories in World Cup competition. After taking first place in the final competition held before the 2022 Winter Olympics, Peel is currently ranked third overall in the 2021-22 season. After successfully landing the quadruple twisting triple backflip just recently in training, the Canberran is now working on perfecting it.

In addition, Peel's Australian teammate Dani Scott might be there to keep her company on the podium. The 31-year-old athlete, who won a silver medal at the world championship in 2017, won two World Cups in the calendar year 2021.

Bree Walker (bobsleigh - monobob)

Would it be possible for a former hurdler to make history at the Winter Olympics in Beijing? Walker began her athletic career by competing in the 400-meter dash, just like her idol Cathy Freeman, before moving on to the hurdles and, in her early 20s, deciding to focus on bobsleigh. Now, at the age of 29, she has her sights set on winning the first-ever women's monobob gold medal. After one victory, three second-place finishes, and one third-place result, Walker was sitting in the second spot in the rankings for the 2021-22 world series. However, after a seventh-place finish in the final round, Walker fell to the fifth spot in the rankings.

Bobsledder in the two-woman division Tia-Clair Toomey

Ask Jana Pittman if you need any more convincing: bobsleigh is always full of athletes pushing the boundaries of their physical capabilities. Toomey, on the other hand, didn't get started until December 2020, when Bree Walker's former two-woman bobsleigh partner Ashleigh Werner gave her a call. Other people have been doing it for years. Toomey, who is a CrossFit champion and who won the weightlifting gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, spent the previous year learning the ropes of becoming a brakewoman.

Beijing, which will become the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Games after this year's event, will complete the Olympic cycle with this year's competition.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose Beijing as the host city for the 2015 Summer Olympics over Almaty, Kazakhstan. This gave Beijing the opportunity to host the event.

Beijing, which was the host city for the Summer Games in 2008, has trucked in artificial snow in preparation for the Winter Games in 2022.

Over the course of the 17 days of competition, a total of 13 locations, spread across Beijing, Yanqing, and Zhangjiakou, will play host to various events.

There was only one new venue constructed in Beijing, and that was the National Speed Skating Oval, which opened in 2008 on the same land that was previously used for field hockey.

This year's opening and closing ceremonies will be held at the national stadium that was used for the 2008 Olympics. The "Water Cube," an aquatics center that previously hosted swimming and diving, has been transformed into the "Ice Cube," which will be used for curling.

The indoor arena that was formerly utilized for gymnastics and handball will serve as the venue for the crucial ice hockey competition.

Alpine skiing, bobsleigh, and luge can be found in Yanqing, which is located a three-hour drive north of Beijing.

The events of cross-country skiing, ski jumping, and snowboarding will be held in Zhangjiakou, which is approximately a three-hour drive from the capital.

The three cities are connected by a high-speed rail network that can travel at speeds of up to 350 kilometers per hour.

There will be mixed men's and women's team competitions in freestyle skiing, short-track speed skating, snowboarding, and ski jumping among the events that will be held at the Beijing 2022 Olympics.

The Olympic Winter Games will be contained within a COVID-19 bubble that will enclose all of the stadiums, competition venues, accommodation, and catering facilities.

Those fans who live on the Chinese mainland are the only ones who are allowed to attend the events.

The very first Olympic Winter Games were held in Chamonix, France, over the course of nearly two weeks in January and February 1924. These games took place five months before the Summer Olympics were held in Paris that same year.

In point of fact, the Winter Olympics did not begin until the International Olympic Committee decided that the "International Sports Week 1924" had been a success. At that time, the IOC retroactively named the event the Winter Olympics and began making plans for the Winter Olympics in 1928.

There had been competitions in winter sports at the Summer Olympics prior to 1924; in 1920, the gold medals were won by the Canadian ice hockey team and the Swedish figure skater Gillis Grafstrom.

In Chamonix, Canada and Grafstrom won gold for the second time, but Charles Jewtraw was the first ever official winner of the Winter Olympics.

The United States was only able to bring home one gold medal from Chamonix, and it came from an American who won the final of the 500-meter speed skating event.

As a total of 258 athletes from 16 countries, including 11 women and 247 men, competed for glory, 16 nations were awarded a total of 16 gold medals.

The first Winter Olympics were held in 1936, with Ken Kennedy representing Australia in the speed skating competition.

In 1994, Steven Bradbury, Kieran Hansen, Andrew Murtha, and Richard Nizielski brought home the bronze medal for the men's 5000-meter short-track speed skating competition, which was the first medal ever won by the nation.

Zali Steggall's bronze medal performance in the slalom event at the 1998 Winter Olympics was Australia's first individual medal.

Famously, Bradbury won the country's first gold medal in 2002, and just a few days later, freestyle skier Alisa Camplin became the aerials champion. This brought the total number of gold medals won by the country to two.

In Australia, viewers can tune in to Seven and 7plus to watch the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics live and for free. Coverage of the games will begin at 12pm AEDT on weekdays and 10am AEDT on weekends.

7plus is your go-to streaming destination for the Olympic Winter Games, offering up to 20 channels covering more sport both live and on demand. To get started, navigate to the 7plus website on your computer or download the app to your mobile device, tablet, or smart television.
