XXIV Winter Olympic Games 2022
04-20 February 2022 | Beijing, China
Seven years after it won the right to host the 128th IOC Session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the capital city of China PR, Beijing held the XXIV Winter Olympic Games from 4 to 20 February 2022.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Games were held in a ‘bubble’ environment where participants were subjected to daily Covid-19 testing and could only travel to and from Games-related venues. Further, the XXIV Winter Olympic Games also limited ticket sales to the general public to further ensure the safety of the Games’ participants.
The Games featured a record total of 109 events across 15 sports, with Malaysia sending 2 participants who were both Alpine skiers. This was Malaysia’s second appearance at the Winter Olympic Games.
The Contingent was led by Ms. Moira Tan Siew See as the Chef-de-Mission. The two Alpine skiers were Jeffrey Webb and Aruwin Salehhudin. The latter was the flagbearer during the opening ceremony, while Webb held the flag during the closing ceremony.
It was Webb’s second participation at a Winter Olympic Games, while Salehhudin, at 17 years old, became the first female to represent Malaysia at a Winter Olympic Games.
