Beijing 2022: IOC announces seven new events for Winter Olympics

The World Squash Federation (WSF) and the Professional Squash Association (PSA) jointly welcomed today's announcement made by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding the new sports selection procedure for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games at the IOC Executive Board Meeting in Lausanne. We truly believe that we can seamlessly integrate the Olympic programme with a minimal investment and an optimised gender-equal pool of participants, while bringing a lot of additional excitement and spectacular action to the very heart of the host cities. "At the same time, we are sending a message that the size of the Olympic Winter Games is being directly addressed".

The IOC said the Winter Olympics will have its highest-ever gender balance in 2022, rising from 41 percent female athletes to more than 45 percent.

In keeping with Olympic Agenda 2020, the number of athletes and events in any new sports proposed by Paris 2024 should be considered within the Olympic Charter framework of approximately 10,500 athletes and 310 events. Looking for breaking news, videos, Olympic and Paralympic team bios all at your fingertips? It turns out 2022, in Beijing, is our answer.

Beijing will mark the third straight Winter Olympics to add mixed-gender events. Big air snowboarding debuted at the 2018 Winter Games, consisting of athletes who had also qualified in slopestyle. In PyeongChang, athletes had three attempts to perform a trick off a massive jump, with the lowest score being dropped.

Trump to CNBC: 'Obama Was a Patsy for Russia'
Before the White House released the statement , Sen. "I have said that numerous times before, and I would say that is true, yeah". He said what he meant "should have been obvious - I thought it would be obvious but would like to clarify in case it wasn't".

Mixed team events, in which both men and women compete together, have always been a staple of Youth Olympic Games as well, and they're becoming more popular on the full Games program as well. "The universal appeal of the session schedule, combined with the debut of several events and sports, will make for thrilling Olympic Games for sports enthusiasts everywhere". Such events were introduced at the 2018 Winter Games in alpine skiing and curling, with 2014 additions in biathlon and luge.

Canadian bobsledder Alysia Rissling, who in 2015 was the pilot for the first ever all-woman team in an official four-woman bobsleigh event, has described the announcement by the International Olympic Committee as "a sick joke".

The mixed short track event will be a relay, similar to the existing men's and women's relays.
