Kurzstrecken Eisschnelllauf bei Olymp. Winterspielen

By Phil Bainbridge

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Die Olympischen Winterspiele 2022, offiziell die XXIV Olymp. Winterspiele, werden nahe bei Beijing, China, abgehalten.

The Short-track speed skating events will take place at the Capital Indoor Stadium in Beijing. The site became famous in 1971 as the venue for “ping-pong diplomacy”, in which the U.S. table tennis team, the first Americans allowed into China since the Communist revolution in 1949, played against their Chinese counterparts, laying the groundwork for the establishment of official relations between the two countries.
