Winter Olympics 2022 (XXIV Winter Olympics) is the 24th Winter Olympic Games, which will be held from February 4 to 20, 2022 in the capital of China, Beijing.
Six cities initially claimed to host the XXIV Winter Olympic Games: Stockholm (Sweden), Krakow (Poland), Lvov (Ukraine), Oslo (Norway), Almaty (Kazakhstan) and Beijing (China).
Stockholm, Krakow, Lvov and Oslo withdrew their applications for various reasons even before the start of the elections.
On July 31, 2015, at the session of the International Olympic Committee in Kuala Lumpur, Beijing was chosen as the capital of the Olympic Games, which was ahead of Almaty by a margin of only 4 votes (44 votes against 40). Thus, the Chinese capital will be the first city to host the Summer and Winter Games.
