Beijing is the first city in the world to hold both the summer and winter Olympic Games after winning the bid for the 2022 Winter Games on July 31, 2015.
Beijing 2022 aimed to expand upon the legacy of the historic Beijing 2008 Olympic Games by encouraging the country’s massive population of over 300 million to take up winter sports.
Central Beijing, Yanqing, and Zhangjiakou were the three competition zones that hosted the 109 events in seven different winter Olympic sports.
There are three Distinct Regions for Competition.
The four snow events (men’s and women’s snowboard big air, and men’s and women’s freestyle skiing big air) and all three ice events (curling, ice hockey, and skating) were held in Beijing, making use of the legacy venues from Beijing 2008.
Alpine skiing and sliding (bobsleigh, skeleton, and luge) events were held at Yanqing, a Beijing suburb 80 kilometres to the northwest that is home to the famed Badaling and Juyongguan segments of the Great Wall.
All the other snow events (snowboard, freestyle skiing, cross country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined, and biathlon) were held in the Chongli district of Zhangjiakou, in the neighbouring Hebei province, to the northwest.
With the completion of the Beijing-Zhangjiakou high-speed train in 2019, commute times between the two capital cities were reduced by half.
Shaun White has won how Many Olympic Medals?
White won the most Olympic gold medals of any snowboarder with three.
White, competing in his first Olympics, came close to elimination in the preliminary rounds but rallied to make it to the finals and ultimately won gold in Turin.
While his record for youngest male snowboarding gold medallist has since been surpassed by fellow American Red Gerard in PyeongChang, he held the title for four years at the age of 19.
- A. Caci Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
- A. Kifle Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
- M. De Jesus Dos Santos Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
The Outcome was Important as he won his Second Gold Medal.
White finished the final two runs of the finals even though he had already secured the gold medal after his first run. He scored 48.5 out of 50.
White went to the 2014 Sochi Olympics hoping to win gold in two events, making history as the first snowboarder to do so, and the first to win three consecutive gold medals.
But he dropped out of the slopestyle competition just two days beforehand, placed fourth in the halfpipe, and came back to the United States empty-handed, an experience he said you never truly “get over.”
A lot of people thought White would retire after the 2014 Winter Olympics, but he ended up joining Team USA again for PyeongChang.
On the last run, White was one point behind Japan’s Ayumu Hirano, but he nailed a pair of 1440s to win the gold and give the United States its 100th medal of the PyeongChang Olympics.
